Background

Roberta Battaglia is a dynamic, up-and-coming 10-year-old vocalist from Toronto, Canada. Born on August 22, 2009 to a musical family, Roberta began her singing career at the age of 3, alongside her father, Alessandro Battaglia. Together, the duo has graced many stages - from local community performances to galas and noted charity events. A second-generation Italian Canadian, Roberta is fluent in both English and Italian and performs a diverse repertoire of music in both languages, ranging from ballads and Top 40 hits to high-octane pop.

She has studied her craft via academy singing instruction and has already contributed to commercial productions, while receiving recognition in competitions such as first runner up at CNE Rising Star. Her special independent appearances include a performance at ideaCity, presented by television mogul Moses Znaimer, as well as Toronto's Breakfast Television, where her rendition of Lady Gaga's "Shallow" resulted in over 2 million views in only two weeks.
