The other half of the singing duo, Paola & Chiara, Chiara Iezzi, has momentarily detached herself from her sister in order to launch her solo career. A fervent fan of Madonna, Chiara’s debut album Nothing At All, echoes the queen of pop.
The video proves that Chiara can not only sound like Madonna, but she can even look like her. It comes as no big surprise that like her idol, she too practices Kabbalah and donates money to charities in Malawi. In fact, if you purchase her song Nothing At All, through I-Tunes, the money devolved from the sales go to help the population (and most importantly the children) of Malawi. So, while you dance to your favourite song, you can feel a sense of unselfish satisfaction for having helped those in need.
A year ago, Chiara met Madonna in London at the Kabbalah Center (conveniently located across the street from Madonna’s London residence). Nothing came out of this encounter, other than to curb Chiara’s enthusiasm in having met her idol.
In the beginning of this endeavor, an interview was programmed for Plastic Venus, and after the initial acceptance and the later decline of not being able to do it because of the plethora of work, but with the insistence that she would still like for me to write an article about her for the site.
The beginning of her career her eyes were set on Ireland, as her love for U2 was evident manifested not only through her music but even a tattoo of a clover. Now with her eyes set on pop – Chiara’s songs are danceable but with a tinge of melancholy. She provides a new outlet for Italian pop – rich with 80’s dance fever nostalgia. Australia has found their response to Madonna through Kylie Minogue, and now Italy has their Queen of Pop in the form of Chiara Iezzi.
