Dora is probably one of the most powerful voice of the italo-disco era: her range is soft and strong at the same time.

She started out as the lead singer of her own group (Novecento) and then she borrowed her talent to the Valerie Dore project.

During late 80's and early 90's his husband worked for Discomagic Records, producing downbeat remixes of famous pop songs: obviously Dora was the voice behind these cover versions.

This is a short list of the most interesting ones:

-Lovers "7 Seconds"
-2U "Nothing Compares 2U"+"Take My Breath Away"
-Sissy Taylor "Woman In Love"
-Jackie Moore "Wind Of Change"+"One More Night"+"I Wish It Would Rain Down"+"Mi Chico Latino"+"Can't Get You Out Of My Head"
-Floor "Unchained Melody"
-Annie Addams "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)"+"River Of Dreams"+"Send Me An Angel"
-Rosy S. "Change"
-The Mixmaster "Another Day In Paradise"
-Majority "In All The Right Places"
-Mr Dream "Around My Dream"
-DJ's Gang "Cinderella"

She is also the voice behind "Get Up" by Fifty Hertz and she showed her classical style (soprano) in "Albinoni" by Voice Of Afrika.

Made in Italy at its best.
