Laura Rizzotto is a 23 year old singer, songwriter and pianist born in Brazil, to a Latvian father and a Brazilian mother of Portuguese descent. She wrote her first tune at the age of eleven and has published more than 100 original songs since then.
At the age of fifteen, Laura started performing in the Rio de Janeiro's music scene. Her first record deal came up one year later, after a record company executive saw her performing live. Her debut studio album, Made in Rio, was released in 2011. Shortly after, Laura received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music and moved to Boston, United States.
Laura performs in various music venues and festivals in the United States and has recorded her second studio album Reason To Stay, in Los Angeles, in 2014. This album served as a driving force to promote environmental education and a greater public awareness regarding the urgent need of conservation and restoration of Brazilian national tree, also known as The Music Tree, which is listed as an endangered species and often cut down to make musical instruments.
In 2015, Laura moved to New York City to pursue a Masters degree in Music and Music Education, at Columbia University, graduating in May 2017. In New York, Laura wrote Miracle, as a tribute to road traffic victims. The song was featured on the second Global Conference on Road Safety, sponsored by the United Nations.
The song Funny Girl won the Latvian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. The song, which Laura wrote and composed, will be included on Laura’s upcoming EP Amber, to be released in 2018, to celebrate her Latvian heritage.

Lyrics of Funny Girl

Lyrics of Funny Girl

English (Original)

Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funnyOh, it all started as a jokeBut now I’m falling, now I’m fallingThe punch line is getting oldCause I’ve been keeping to myselfFor way too long
Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funnyI made you laugh every time we spokeI locked my heart in hesitationBut somehow, you cracked the code
I tore down my walls,And wrecked the ceilingReady to bare it all, but
You’re looking at herShe’s looking at youI’m falling apartWhat can I doTo make you feel that way about me too?And it’s getting hardI’m not gonna lieTo keep in the dark what I’m feeling insideWhen you walk in smelling like her perfumeWhat was I thinking?I’m just the funny girl to you
Can you feel me, can you feel meLike a fire rising in the smoke?Can you hear me, can you hear meOpen up with every note?Cause I’ve been playing to myselfFor way too long
Oh, I tore down my wallsAnd I wrecked the ceilingReady to bare it allWhat was I thinking?
You’re looking at herShe’s looking at youI’m falling apartWhat can I doTo make you feel that way about me too?And it’s getting hardI’m not gonna lieTo keep in the dark what I’m feeling insideWhen you walk in smelling like her perfumeWhat was I thinking?I’m just the funny girl to you
So tell me what you’re looking forI promise you, I got it allWhat does it take to make you see I am right here?And if you ever need to cryI’ll be the one who makes you laughYeah, I’ll be your funny girlYour funny girl
You’re looking at herShe’s looking at youI’m falling apartWhat can I doTo make you feel that way about me too?And it’s getting hardI’m not gonna lieTo keep in the dark what I’m feeling insideWhen you walk in smelling like her perfumeWhat was I thinking?I’m just the funny girl to you
