Sérgio Mendes en Gracinha Leporace (1971)

Gracinha Leporace, born Maria Da Graca Leporace, is a female Brazilian singer who worked extensively with her husband Sérgio Mendes and his band.

Leporace was born in 1949, in the suburb of Rio known as Ipanema. She has a sister, Marianna Leporace, who is a singer and actress in Brazil.

Leporace has featured regularly in much of her husband's group's releases over the last four decades and, most recently, can be heard as the Portuguese-singing female vocal in the hit "Mas que Nada" (featuring The Black Eyed Peas) from the 2006 album Timeless and in the Baden Powell de Aquino composition "Berimbau/Consolação" from the same album, in which she provides the lead vocal.

Along with her work with Sergio Mendes, she was a member of the Bossa Nova group known in the early '70's as Bossa Rio.

Leporace has two sons with Mendes, Gustavo and Tiago. They currently reside in a suburb of Los Angeles, California.
