Suzy was born in Figueira da Foz. From very early on she has shown great pleasure in singing, appearing for the first time on stage at only 5 years of age, at the Cineteatro Caras Direitas in Buarcos, a small village in the centre of Portugal.
During her childhood, she moved to Lisbon, having joined the group Onda Choc, a kids’ band of huge success in the 90s, which allowed her to perform in numerous shows and make several appearances on TV shows.
In 2013, she was invited to sing at some events in Dubai, where she lived until participating in Festival da Canção 2014. Already this year she was invited by singer-songwriter and producer Emanuel to be his representative in the Festival RTP da Canção 2014, where she performed Quero ser tua - the show that celebrated the 50th anniversary of this event. She won the final, earning the right to represent Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen. She finished in 11th place in the first semifinal, missing out on qualifying by a single point.
In 2015, she was the Portuguese spokesperson at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. When Portugal won Eurovision and hosted in 2018, she appeared in the interval act about how Portugal struggled to impress Europe for 53 long years.
