Her song The Girl from Ipanema was later covered by several famous artists, including Amy Winehouse. 

Furthermore, Astrud recorded and released 16 original albums. However, she encountered difficulties receiving proper compensation and recognition for her work. According to her son Marcelo, Astrud had a genuine belief in people and was trusting, which unfortunately led others to take advantage of her kind nature, trust, and passion for making music. Marcelo further revealed that his mother did not receive total payments for her albums “Now” and “That Girl from Ipanema.”

Nevertheless, Astrud managed to achieve international success despite these challenges. Fans and collaborators emphasize her significant contribution to bossa nova music and regard her as an icon of Brazilian music. In 2002, she was inducted into the International Latin Music Hall Of Fame. She was also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Latin Recording Academy in 2008.
