Exclusive interview with Deborah Iurato
The victory in the thirteenth edition of Friends did your career change? After many years, what has changed about the emotions of that moment?
I remember how the most beautiful and important experience. It has made my own passion my own work. But it has me too changed, because obviously over the years I have grown, I have become aware of myself and my fact of being a woman. Eight years ago I was younger, at 22 girls we often have misunderstandings with ourselves and we do a thousand paranoia. Instead, advancing with age and also growing at the job level, I got more conscience of myself.
Without the big push of the show, just with your determination, would you have gotten where you are today?
I do not know, maybe not. Probably, Friends he gave me a big one visibility and a way to introduce myself to the large audience.
Would you suggest to a very young person that you choose the path of talent?
Absolutely yes, because it is an experience that sets you up. Everything is very beautiful from the audition, when they catch you cryingemotion. I do I would recommend absolutely.

Probably, a lot. It is also true that today the way of making music has changed, of doing everything. Fortunately, we have more platforms, that is social network above all, they keep us close to people. But so do I. talent show to serve.
Take a step back on your path. Tell us before Deborah Iurato Friends?
Before Friends I used to work and at the same time He was playing. Music has always been a part of my day to day life since I was a child. I was 5 years old when I started singing the de The Zecchino d’Oro and then growing up I made mine band in Sicilywith which I did evenings at the venue. Since I was little, music has always been a part of me.
Talents are definitely on your strings … you’ve also triumphed at Tal i Quin Show. What was it like to participate in the program?
Beautiful, beautiful, but above all fun. You compare yourself to artists on a large scale. I was lucky enough to play artists like Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, so it was a great experience. In addition, there is one in the program climate A lot familiarespecially towards the makeup artists, who do crazy tricks. And then a lot of testing, dance, I sing. In short, it was a very fun experience.
Let’s move on to new projects: Live set – Groove Factory, is a collection of R&B and soul hits. How did this idea come about?
The idea was born for one of mine to wish. Mainly with the thought of the alive this summer, because I wanted to bring a style soul I R&B. After these two years of stoppage where the only way to stay close was through social media, I think the time has come for everyone to come back to normality ia carefree. I wanted to do something that would make me come back a little back in time, when he was younger. I’ve always listened to soul and R&B music and Houston has been a mantra for me. I had that desire.
Is this your current style? Do you see yourself in the stars you’ve played?
“Review” is a big word (river, ed). I have tried to interpret the great successes my way of being. So far only the first three songs have been released on Spotify, but this summer’s live will be full of songs that represent me and that I’ve always sung. Precisely for this reason, I did this project: for go back in time.
You will also live again soon. Are you excited?
Very, very, I can not wait. Being so far away hurts. Even when I have them recorded the Live Set – Groove Factory I have ten fans raffled off and being able to see them again and hug them again was a great emotion for me. Now I feel like going back on stage and singing with them. As soon as I have the in your place I will share live programs on my social channels.
Maybe it’s too early to talk about future projects, as the latest has just come out. But what does Deborah Iurato want for herself?
He certainly lives on from this: Playing music. In the meantime, I also continue to work in parallel new unpublished projects.
