Program Description
 
With her new musical special “From Venice With Love” songstress Giada Valenti takes us on a romantic and magical journey, as she performs her own interpretations of American and Italian hit songs from the 60s, 70s, & 80s, as well as today.  
 
Born and raised in Venice, Italy, Giada's life has always been a celebration of love.  The romance and magic of her hometown is a great influence on Giada’s work and accounts for the passion she brings to her musical style.  Her new special will bring the atmosphere of Venetian romance to an American audience. Giada, who sings and speaks in 5 languages, performs love songs that were originally made famous by The Carpenters, Rosemary Clooney, The Beatles, The Doors, Christina Perri, The BeeGees, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Roberta Flack, Bread, Domenico Modugno, and many more.
 
Giada's voice and spirit touches the heart of her audience. She is a rare talent who can deliver songs from multiple genres, from the haunting ballad “La Vie En Rose” to the rock classic “Light My Fire”. Giada's charm and soul can be felt in every song she sings and this creates an atmosphere that allows all those who listen to her to be transported to a place of love and warmth. This makes a Giada Valenti concert a truly magical and unique experience. Giada is a natural storyteller. Throughout her special she shares funny anecdotes and personal tales from her past with her audience, which elicit laughter and provide for a lovely and sincere bond between herself and the crowd. This is a genuine connection that is also shared with the home audience.
 
For this television special Giada is accompanied by a 26 piece orchestra. She is wearing stunning dresses that were specially made for her in Venice. The beautiful décor has elements that are typical of Venice. The chandelier used on the set is made of 2,000 pieces of crystal and took nearly 16 hours to assemble. 
 
Giada has also surrounded herself with some of the best professionals in music today, such as arrangers Chris Walden (Andrea Bocelli, Michael Buble, Barbra Streisand, Rihanna) and arranger Larry Gold (Pink, John Legend, Aretha Franklin), multi Grammy award winning music producer Gregg Field (Monica Mancini, Gloria Estefan, Arturo Sandoval, Barbra Streisand), television director Alex Coletti (PBS Special Josh Groban, PBS Special Celtic Woman, Christmas Tree Lighting at the White House) and lighting designer Chris Landy (Jimmy Fallon Late Night, PBS special Annie Lennox).
 
Giada Valenti's “From Venice With Love” is a romantic musical journey that will make you fall in love with love all over again.
