Nelson Ned built a solid career as a singer and composer of sentimental, suffering songs. His recordings have been released in America, Europe, and Africa, and he has received gold records both in Brazil and abroad. His compositions have been recorded by the likes of Mantovani and Matt Monroe; in Brazil he had his songs recorded by Moacir Franco, AntÃ´nio Marcos, and Agnaldo TimÃ³teo. In 1968, he recorded for the first time; the song was his own composition (with Hamilton Gouveia Bastos) "Tamanho NÃ£o Ã‰ Documento" (loosely, "Size Doesn't Matter," an allusion to his small stature). In the same year, he won the I Festival de la CanciÃ³n (Buenos Aires, Argentina) with his "Tudo PassarÃ¡." In 1969, when he was already very popular in Brazil, he started to sing internationally, performing in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and Africa. His international performances included four shows at Carnegie Hall, two at Madison Square Garden, and mega-events in Mexico. After his conversion in 1993, he has only recorded evangelic songs. ~ Alvaro NederPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
