Daiane ``Lady Day`` Cannon
In 2011, Daiane became apart of the Brazilian Chicago Samba Dance Group. In 2015, she became the first-place winner as the “Queen of Chicago Samba” champion.
Daiane is now known as a professional Samba Dancer and Samba Costume designer. Meanwhile, I had to ask Daiana to lay something down on the dance track. While in my music studio, Daiane was playing around with some words (free styling) on the microphone. While recording her, I began to notice something magical was happening. The rhythmic rhymes of her voice and her Brazilian flavor(rapping) gave life to the song. We began to collaborate on some exchanges of lyrics and “Hennessy,” was formed. However, the “Hennessy,” song could not be completed without having some jazz flavor and a little funk of soprano saxophone which put the icing on the cake.
The Hennessy song features Carlos Cannon, lead vocalist, Brazilian rapper, wife, Daiane Cannon, Aka, “DayMdz,” and “TChi,” back round and Ab lib vocalists. Lyric is written by Carlos and wite, Daiane Cannon. Music is produced by Carlos Cannon and Dion Wolford/Key Productions.
