Manuel Morais[edit]

I have removed the reference to "Manuel Morais" as it seems to be a factoid. The only references to this name together with Roberto Carlos on the internet seem to be some obscure pages in Spanish, and a lot of citations of this article. In fact, NO song of Roberto Carlos (in the original Portuguese language) is attributed to this person. If Roberto Carlos had an obscure ghost-writer, there should be at least some controversy in the Brazilian media about it some time (as there were about other aspects of Roberto's biography), and it has never happened. If someone has any substantial proof of the existence of this partnership, please provide a reference.Rsnetto74 (talk) 04:53, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Roberto carlos has sold a lot more tha 50 million records[edit]

Roberto Carlos, Brasil, has sold about 110 million albums to date. You have placed him in the wrong category of 50 million albums.

Whoever wrote his biography for Wikipedia did him an inservice. He is such as huge star who has sold more albums tha Elvis or the Beatles and the most famous artist in Brasil and the #1 selling artist in the entire South America. He has an international career and has a huge following of fans throughout the world.

Roberto Carlos keeps on selling millions each year[edit]

True, Roberto Carlos has sold well over 100 million albums and still has a very active career. He is a huge superstar. Every time he releases an album (usually one album every year)it sells over one million in Brasil alone.

Bad pic[edit]

I don't like that photo. I know, when a free image is available, use that; but this one was taken around 30 years ago, it is too old and yellowed, and he certainly looks different now. I think this article should go back to the publicity shot I had posted before. - Stormwatch 03:57, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Detalhes[edit]

The melody, structure and tone of "Detalhes" (1971) sounds remarkably like a slower version of Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talkin'" (1969).
