__NOTOC__Anna Tatangelo (born January 9, 1987) is an Italian pop singer. She is engaged to the singer Gigi D'Alessio.


Anna Tatangelo was born in Sora, in the province of Frosinone. She has two older brothers, Maurizio and Giuseppe, and an older sister Silvia. Currently she lives in Rome.


In 2002, Tatangelo became the youngest person at 15 years old to win the Sanremo Music Festival's Youth Award. After her victory, she recorded a popular duet in 2003, "Un nuovo bacio" with her current boyfriend, singer-songwriter Gigi D'Alessio, and also "Il mondo è mio" in 2004. Her first album, "Attimo x attimo" was released only in September 2003, and contained her first duet with D'Alessio.

"Ragazza di periferia"

Success and popularity came in 2005, when her second album, "Ragazza di periferia" was released. The album, which included numerous songs co-written by D'Alessio, spun a string of hits such as "Quando due si lasciano", "Qualcosa di te", and the titular track. In 2006 she participated in Sanremo's Women Category and won with a new song, "Essere una donna".

"Mai dire mai"

She followed up this success with 2007's "Mai dire mai", her third album. It was certified platinum weeks after its release and while not being able to match her hit-churning sophomore effort, displayed a newfound maturity in terms of musical direction. It was also the first time Tatangelo penned the lyrics to her own songs, in "Averti qui" and "Lo so che finirà". In 2008, she sang a new song at the Sanremo Music Festival, winning second prize with "Il mio amico", which was dedicated to her best friend Claudio. The song broke away from standard themes of love as it talked about discrimination against homosexuals. With this song Tatangelo also recorded a duet with American singer Michael Bolton.

Tour and fourth album

Tatangelo has been staging a series of concerts since March 2008, in her her debut tour. Her upcoming fourth album, as yet untitled, will be released on 21 November 2008.
