Hot 100 2011 - Clarita De Quiroz
Composed of stunning model-musician Clarita de Quiroz, guitarists Kane Smith and Kara Gray, and drummer Steve Fuller, Clarita and her band are the latest music sensation to burst onto the UAE music scene. Classically trained as a musician from the age of four, frontwoman Clarita was first spotted when she sang at the Grazia Style Awards in 2008. “That gig got me so many contacts. It was pretty much the start of my career in Dubai,” says the Abu-Dhabi born songstress.
Since that first high-profile gig, Clarita has gone onto support superstars such as Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle and the Sugababes at the F1 2010. “The Beats on the Beach was one of my favourite performances of my whole career. The audience were so supportive and made me feel amazing.” This year, the band plans to record their second album, continue growing their fan base and secure even more stellar performances like their Formula One outing.
