Dora, born May 20 1966 as Maria Reis Dias de Jesus, is a Portugese singer who is Popular in Portugal and Latin-America.

Dora represented Portugal twice in the Eurovision Song Contest. In 1986 Dora participated in the ESC in Bergen with the song Não Sejas Mau P'ra Mim, which was one of the favourites for 1st place but finished only 14th. In 1988 Dora participated in the ESC with the song Voltarei which came 18th. The composers of Voltarei, José Niza and José Calvário, were accused of plagiarism because the verses of Voltarei are very similar to the chorus of the winner of 1976, Save Your Kisses For Me. In 1990 Dora moved to Brazil and became a succesful singer in Latin-America. In 2001 she moved back to Portugal where she's still active as a singer.
