Gisela Lladó Cánovas (born January 1, 1979) is a Spanish pop singer and a Spanish dub actress. She was born in El Bruc (Barcelona), in Catalonia, Spain, and became famous after placing eighth in the first Spanish edition of Operación Triunfo. Before she was a journalism student at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. She is also known for representing Andorra in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia, failing to reach the final.

Career after Operación Triunfo[edit]

Her first album, Parte De Mí, came out in Spain in 2002, selling 260,000 copies in a few weeks. That year she also performed at the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 in Tallinn as a backing singer for her friend Rosa López. In 2003, she won the award for best voice in the Viña del Mar International Song Festival and she won the competition with the song Este Amor Es Tuyo.

Her second album in 2003, Más Allá has five singles, including Más Allá (and Catalan version: Més enllà), the No.1 Sola and Amor Divino. Also in 2003, her version of Irene Cara's "What a Feeling" was included in an advert in the United Kingdom.

Ni te lo imaginas[edit]

Her third album, Ni te lo imaginas, came out in 2006, under a new record label (Filmax, rather than Vale Music). There were four singles off the album, the first and the third becoming Gisela's most successful so far in her career. The first was Turu-Turu, a pop ballad reaching No.1 in Spain on its second week. Filmax released a Special Edition version of the album, including two new songs, the first called Mi mundo eres tú and the second, Viviré en tus sueños.


She has performed regional voice roles for the Disney movies Peter Pan 2 (2002), Beauty and the Beast (2003), the singing voice of Erika in Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper (2004), the singing voice of Giselle in Enchanted (2007) in both Castilian Spanish and Catalan,[1] the singing voice of Elsa in Frozen (2013) also in Castilian Spanish and Catalan. She was also in The Hairy Tooth Fairy 1 and 2 (2006 and 2008), Snowflake, the White Gorilla (2011) and Serie B (2012), in Castilian Spanish.[2]
