Agnaldo Rayol has had much success since 1946 as a romantic singer, radio and TV actor, and show host. More recently in 1998, he had a national hit singing the theme song of soap opera Terra Nostra (TV Globo), "Tormento d'Amore," in Italian. Among his career hits are "Acorrentados (Encandenados)," "O Amor É Tudo (Love Is All)," "Livre (Born Free)," and "Ave Maria" (Gounod). He recorded more than 21 LPs and CDs from 1958 to 1998. At age eight, he opened as a singer at the Rádio Nacional (Rio). After moving with his family to Natal RN, he continued to perform in radios as an actor and singer. Returning to Rio in 1951, he participated in the film Maior Que O Ódio. In 1956, he accompanied Leny Eversong in a Northeastern tour and was hired by Rádio Tupi upon his return. After several albums recorded for Copacabana, he had a hit in 1964 with "Acorrentados" (Carlos Briz, version by Miranda/Genival Neto). He had another hit in the next year with another version, "O Princípio E O Fim" (Alain Barrière, version by Nazareno de Brito). Between 1966 and 1968, he presented the Corte-Rayol Show, at TV Record (São Paulo SP), with Renato Corte Real. Trying to catch on with the Beatles' wave, he participated in the Jovem Guarda show and was the main character of the film Agnaldo, Perigo À Vista. In 1981, he won the International Song Festival (Uruguay). He hosted the Festa Baile show for eight years (TV Cultura, São Paulo SP) and participated in several soap operas and humor shows. ~ Alvaro Neder
