Following in the footsteps of Michel Teló, Gusttavo Lima became one of the few sertanejo singers to achieve success outside South America after using an adopted football anthem to launch an international career. Born Nivaldo Batista Lima in Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1989, he grew up in Goias, where he became a soloist in a choir at only nine years of age. After the release of Lima's debut album Revelacao (2009) and sophomore outing Inventor Dos Amores (2010), his 2011 live album E Você attracted international attention when its lead single, "Balada," was championed by footballer Neymar and became a huge football anthem in Brazil and across Europe, reaching number one in France, Italy, and Holland. Another live album, Atualmente, is planned for 2012. ~ Jon O'Brien
