Carla Sacco was born in 1977 in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. From age three she began performing for weddings, barmitzvahs and high school events at various venues throughout Southern Ontario. After being told over and over again that she looked so much like Shania, she decided to venture into the tribute business. Now Carla takes her energetic performance worldwide.
Why book a tribute to Shania Twain?
After bursting onto the international music scene in 1995, Shania Twain has become a household name at every corner of the globe. Her second album, Come On Over, the most successful female solo artist album of all time, sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Twain has won 5 Grammy Awards and 27 BMI Songwriter awards. She has had three albums certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America and is the second best-selling artist in Canada, behind Céline Dion, with three of her studio albums certified double diamond by the Canadian Recording Industry Association. She is the first (and currently only) female artist in history to have 3 consecutive albums reach diamond status, certified by the RIAA.
Sometimes referred to as “The Queen of Country Pop”, she is one of the most commercially successful artists of all time, having sold over 80 million albums and is ranked 10th best-selling artist of the Nielsen SoundScan era. She was also ranked 72nd on Billboard’s “Artists of the decade” (2000–10). She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on June 2, 2011.
