Laura Pausini OMRI（意大利语：[ˈlaura pauˈzi： ni]；出生于1974年5月16日）是一位意大利歌手，词曲作者，唱片制作人和电视名人。小时候，她受到父亲的鼓励，在他在当地的钢琴酒吧里表演时与他一起。在参加当地的歌唱比赛后，Pausini签署了她的第一张唱片合同。她于1993年成名，凭借首张单曲“ La solitudine ”赢得了意大利标准，并赢得了国际热捧，赢得了第43届圣雷莫音乐节的新人音乐节，在意大利名列前茅，荷兰和比利时。她的同名首张专辑于1993年4月23日在意大利发行，后来在国际上大获成功，在全球范围内销售了200万张。
截至2017年，Pausini 仅针对西班牙裔和英语市场发行了十二张录音室专辑，两张国际最畅销专辑和两张精选专辑。她主要表演意大利语和西班牙语，但也录制了英语，法语，葡萄牙语以及最近的加泰罗尼亚语歌曲。她唯一的原创歌曲英语专辑《从里面来》于2002年发行，但未能满足北美和世界其他地区的商业期望。2006年，她的唱片《Io Canto》是意大利年度最畅销专辑。
包西妮（Pausini）出任墨西哥和西班牙版本的国际现实电视唱歌比赛特许权The Voice的教练，曾是La banda第一和第二系列的评委，同样是国际特许权的西班牙版The X Factor的评委。在2016年，她还以综艺节目主持人的身份首次亮相，与女演员Paola Cortellesi一起主持电视节目Laura＆Paola。
在她的整个职业生涯中，她在意大利和国际上赢得了无数音乐奖项。她在圣雷莫音乐节上获得了第一名和第三名，两次获得了“ Lunezia奖”，十次获得了“ 风音乐奖”，在Festivalbar上获得了四项大奖，七次获得了Telegatti 奖，并获得了MTV意大利音乐奖。在国际上，她在Viñadel Mar国际歌曲节上获得了四个奖项，三个Lo Nuestro奖，四个拉丁格莱美奖，一个Billboard拉丁音乐奖和六个世界音乐奖。2006年，她还成为首位获得格莱美奖的意大利女艺人，获得Escucha唱片的最佳拉丁流行专辑奖。她被总统卡洛·阿齐格里奥·钱皮（Carlo Azeglio Ciampi）授予意大利共和国功勋勋章，并被艾米利亚·罗马涅（Emilia Romagna）任命为世界大使。
劳拉·鲍西尼（Laura Pausini）被描述为中音高音，具有经典而有力的声音。由于她的声音，音乐评论家将鲍西尼与各种女性艺术家进行了比较，包括米尔瓦（Milva），席琳·迪翁（Celine Dion）玛丽亚·凯莉（ Mariah Carey）和芭芭拉·史翠珊（Barbra Streisand）。
在职业生涯初期，音乐评论家认为她是青少年偶像，主要唱歌谈论青春期的爱情和问题。她的歌曲也受到强烈批评，被描述为过于忧郁和琐碎。从她1998年的《La mia risposta / Mi respuesta》开始，意大利音乐评论家认为她是一位更成熟的歌手，后来称赞她的朴素和嗓音，将Pausini描述为她那年的翻译。
尽管Pausini主要是旋律流行歌手，但她的音乐风格在她的职业生涯中得到了发展，并受到了各种流派的影响，包括拉丁音乐，灵魂音乐和摇滚音乐。在2001年，南佛罗里达太阳哨兵队的戴维·卡萨雷斯（David Cazares）将鲍西尼的音乐描述为“各种有光泽，感性的流行民谣，辅以轻质岩石乐器和合成琴弦”。2006年，《华盛顿邮报》的Achy Obejas写道，Pausini与其他拉丁流行歌手的不同之处在于她的精巧和对欧洲的敏感。根据音乐剧院的安东尼奥·奥兰多（Antonio Orlando）的说法，鲍西尼（ Pausini）风格的关键要素是浪漫主义，乐观，忧郁和周围的旋律。
从她的1996年专辑Le cose che vivi / Las cosas que vives开始，Pausini还共同创作了她的大部分歌曲，从她1998年的La mia risposta / Mi respuesta开始，她一直参与制作她的专辑。
Pausini于1995年离开家乡，与伴侣，经理和制片人Alfredo Cerruti Jr. 一起移居米兰。他们的关系在2002年结束。Pausini与新任经理Gabriele Parisi进行了浪漫的交往。 她目前与意大利吉他手，作曲家，音乐制作人和前歌手Paolo Carta合作。2012年9月15日，包西妮在她的官方Facebook页面上确认，她期待与伴侣保罗·卡塔一起生下第一个孩子。他们的女儿Paola于2013年2月8日出生。
Laura Pausini OMRI (Italian: [ˈlaura pauˈziːni]; born 16 May 1974) is an Italian singer-songwriter, record producer and television personality. As a child, she was encouraged by her father to join him during his performances in local piano bars. After competing in local singing contests, Pausini signed her first recording contract. She rose to fame in 1993, winning the newcomer artists’ section of the 43rd Sanremo Music Festival with her debut single “La solitudine”, which became an Italian standard and an international hit, topping the charts in Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Her self titled debut album was released in Italy on 23 April 1993 and later became an international success, selling two million copies worldwide.
Its follow-up, Laura, was released in 1994 and confirmed her international success, selling three million copies worldwide. During the same year, she released her first Spanish-language album, Laura Pausini, composed of ten adapted songs originally included in her previous works. The album was certified diamond by the Association of Phonographic and Videographic of Spain, making her the first non-Spanish artist to sell more than one million copies in Spain.
As of 2017, Pausini has released twelve studio albums, two international greatest hits albums and two compilation albums for the Hispanic and Anglophone market only, respectively. She mostly performs in Italian and Spanish, but she has also recorded songs in English, French, Portuguese and more recently, Catalan. Her sole English-language album of original songs, From the Inside, was released in 2002, but failed to satisfy commercial expectations both in North America and in the rest of the world. In 2006, her record Io canto was the best-selling album of the year in Italy.
In 2004, Allmusic’s Jason Birchmeier considered Pausini’s sales “an impressive feat for someone who’d never really broken into the lucrative English–language market”. FIMI certified Pausini’s sales of more than 70 million records with a FIMI Icon Award.
Pausini appeared as a coach on both the Mexican and Spanish versions of international reality television singing competition franchise The Voice, was a judge on the first and second series of La banda, and is likewise a judge on the Spanish version of international franchise The X Factor. In 2016, she also debuted as a variety show presenter, hosting the television show Laura & Paola, with actress Paola Cortellesi.
Throughout her career, she has won numerous music awards in Italy and internationally. She has earned the first and third place at the Sanremo Music Festival, two “Lunezia Awards”, ten Wind Music Awards, four awards at the Festivalbar, seven Telegatti, and an MTV Italian Music Award. Internationally, she has won four awards at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival, three Lo Nuestro Awards, four Latin Grammy Awards, a Billboard Latin Music Award, and six World Music Awards. In 2006, she also became the first Italian female artist to win a Grammy Award, receiving the accolade for Best Latin Pop Album for the record Escucha. She has been honoured as a Commander Order of Merit of the Italian Republic by President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi and as a World Ambassador of Emilia Romagna.
Laura Pausini is described as a mezzo-soprano with a classic and powerful voice. Due to her voice, Pausini has been compared by music critics to various female artists, including Milva, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand.
At the beginning of her career, she was considered by music critics as a teen idol mainly singing about adolescent love affairs and problems. She was also strongly criticized for her songs, described as too melancholic and trivial. Starting from her 1998’s La mia risposta / Mi respuesta, Italian music critics considered her as a more mature singer and later praised her simplicity and her voice, describing Pausini as an interpreter of her years.
Although Pausini is mainly a melodic pop singer, her musical style evolved during her career, with influences from various genres, including Latin music, soul music and rock music. In 2001, David Cazares of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel described Pausini’s music as “an assortment of glossy and sentimental pop ballads backed by light rock instrumentation and synthesized strings”. In 2006, The Washington Post’s Achy Obejas wrote that Pausini is distinguished from other Latin pop singer by her sophistication and her European sensibilities. According to Musica e dischi’s Antonio Orlando, the key elements in Pausini’s style are romanticism, optimism, melancholy and surrounding melodies.
Starting from her 1996’s album Le cose che vivi / Las cosas que vives, Pausini has also co-written most of her songs and starting from her 1998’s La mia risposta / Mi respuesta she has been involved in the production of her albums.
Pausini left her hometown in 1995, when she moved to Milan with her partner, manager and producer Alfredo Cerruti Jr. Their relationship ended in 2002. Between 2002 and 2005 Pausini was romantically involved with her new manager, Gabriele Parisi. She is currently engaged with the Italian guitarist, composer, music producer and former singer Paolo Carta. On 15 September 2012, Pausini confirmed through her official Facebook page that she was expecting her first child with her partner Paolo Carta. Their daughter, Paola, was born on 8 February 2013.
Pausini describes herself as a Roman Catholic woman, but expressed doubts about the Church’s position on various themes, including contraception, abortion, premarital sex and gay rights. In September 2000 she explained her position during an interview to the Italian newspaper la Repubblica:
I really believe in God, and the Pope is the man that I most want to meet again in the world. I already met him in 1996. I just have a few doubts about the Catholic Church, such as the discrimination against homosexuals. I don’t understand how they condemn racism, but at the same time take issue with gay people.
