    Anna Maria Villa, Jazz and Italian Vocalist

    Anna Maria Villa thrills audiences with her emotion-filled interpretations, singing and entertaining to evoke a smile, a tear, and even a laugh from her listeners. She draws you into the story with her passion and soothes you with her distinctive sound: warm bell tones and breathy whispers. Her style: smooth, elegant and fun.

    Anna Maria was born in Abruzzo, Italy, in the little town of Celano, province of L’Aquila, and spends much of her time between the United States and Italy.
