Nelson Ned in 2008

Nelson Ned d'Ávila Pinto (2 March 1947 in Ubá – 6 January 2014 in Rio de Janeiro) was a famous Brazilian singer from Ubá, Minas Gerais. Nelson built a solid career as a singer and composer of sentimental, suffering songs, rising to popularity in Brazil and Latin America in 1969 and becoming known internationally, especially in Portugal, France and Spain. In 1971 he released his first Spanish album, "Canción Popular" and performed in the USA, Latin America, Europe, and Africa. His international performances have included Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, and mega-events in Mexico. He was the first[citation needed]Latin artist to sell a million records in the U.S. with his hit "Happy Birthday My Darling" in 1974. He did instrumental work for the "Electric Moog Orchestra" in 1977. Since his conversion in 1993, he has only recorded Christian Evangelical songs in both Portuguese, Spanish and some in English. Some of Ned's best-known ballads are "Domingo à Tarde", "Tudo Passará", "Eu Também Sou Sentimental", "Deus Abençoe as Crianças do Brasil", "Medo", and "Feliz Aniversário".[citation needed]
