Laura Pausini (Born May 16, 1974) is an Italian pop singer who is popular in Italy and other Latin countries, famed for her soulful voice, her romantic ballads and love songs, though she has also dealt with other subjects such as poverty, war, and racism, among other social issues. She is also singing in foreign languages, and has made records in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English and recently a duet in French.

Laura was born in Faenza (Ravenna), and was raised in Solarolo (Ravenna). She started to sing in local piano bars with her father when she was 8. In 1993, her career was launched when she won the prestigious Italian San Remo Music Festival with one of her best known songs, "La Solitudine".

In 1994/95, she released her first Spanish album, Laura Pausini, a compilation of her first two Italian CDs, Laura Pausini and Laura, and it made her a household name in the Hispanic and Latin world.

Laura has sold over 26 million records and has over 160 Platinum Albums and one Diamond Album. She has also received two World Music Awards in 1994 and 2003, and a I.F.P.I. Platinum Europe Award.
