Elza Soares: samba’s greatest star epitomised the vivacious spirit of Brazil
The singer’s melodic, growling voice was a marvel – and she overcame great hardship in order to put it to astonishing useElza Soares stood quietly, a few minutes before being born into music. Engulfed by audience fuss and hullabaloo, another of her competitors had been disqualified from the radio talent show she was attending.

She was still a teenager and, once on stage, her oversized, ragged dress would make the audience explode into laughter. “What’s the planet you came from?” asked the host, waiting for the gag’s cue. “I’m from Planet Hunger,” she said. Silence took hold of the venue, and Elza sang for the first time. She never stopped, until her death this week aged 91.Over the decades, the Brazilian artist became a staple for samba, a mainstay of her nation’s songbook and a singer that shared a global pantheon Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. Dubbed the “voice of the millennium” by the BBC in 1999, Elza met the Planet Hunger as few did: a Black woman born in Rio’s favelas, who faced down racism, sexism and classism with brilliant verve.

Latest updates: No 10 says investigation will only be launched ‘if there was any evidence’ to support the claims, despite calls from Labour and Tory MPsBlackmail allegations need to be investigated, says Kwasi KwartengTruss says Johnson doing ‘fantastic job’ but avoids leadership questionGlobal coronavirus updates – liveNo 10 has insisted the inquiry being carried out by senior official Sue Gray into gatherings across Whitehall during Covid-19 restrictions is independent.Gray’s investigation has consistently been described as “independent” despite her being a senior civil servant.A spokesman for the prime minister said:It is for that inquiry, that team, to establish the facts, we’ve said before ... it’s an independent investigation team, I think we’ve set that out from the start.I was campaigning for a range of different things for my constituents, particularly my constituents will remember my campaign on link road.There were some very dicey votes for the government and I was campaigning to receive government funding, and of course one of the tactics used to make sure I fell into line on some of the Brexit rebellions was to threaten the withholding of money to pay for an investigation into whether or not this link road would have been built.
