She performed iconic songs such as “We Are the World” by Band Aid, “The Earth Song” by Michael Jackson, and “Imagine” by John Lennon, showcasing her vocal prowess and humanitarian spirit.

Her career took a significant leap in March 2010 when she won the Festival RTP da Canção with the song “Há dias assim,” written by Augusto Madureira. This victory earned her the honor of representing Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo, Norway. Her heartfelt performance of “Há dias assim” captivated audiences and placed her among the notable acts of the competition.

Filipa continued to engage with her audience through various projects and performances. In 2015, she participated in the third season of “The Voice Portugal” on RTP1. Despite being eliminated in the first live show, she made a lasting impression under the mentorship of Anselmo Ralph.

In addition to her singing career, Filipa Azevedo has ventured into acting, particularly in musical theater, further showcasing her artistic versatility. Her contributions to music and theater have solidified her presence in the Portuguese entertainment industry.

She has also contributed to compilation albums like “Família Superstar” (2007) and “Carrossel de Papel” (2008), a social solidarity CD.
