One of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time, Sergio Mendes has recorded more than thirty-five albums, many of which went gold or platinum, and he is a three-time Grammy Award winner. In 2012, Mendes received his first Oscar nomination in the music category for “Real In Rio” from the animated, 3-D feature film Rio. In addition to being the executive music producer for the blockbuster film, he also contributed five songs to the movie.  

 Mendes started his career with 1961’s Dance Moderno and the groups Bossa Rio and the Sergio Mendes Trio, but it was Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66 that sparked global stardom. Performing “The Look of Love” at the 1968 Oscars, their version went top 10, quickly followed by the hits “The Fool on the Hill” and “Scarborough Fair.” His earlier single, “Mas Que Nada,” marked the first time that a song sung entirely in Portuguese hit Billboard’s Pop chart in the United States.
