With a Voice that melts hearts and instills passion, Franco Corso is the newest Classic Crossover Artist on the International scene. Appropriately dubbed ‘The Voice of Romance’, his voice runs from baritone to tenor with magical quality that seems to hypnotize and mesmerize.
His musical talent has been labeled Powerful, Enchanting and Sophisticated. While all these are true, they are a result of something that cuts deeper to the source. Corso’s music is passion personified, a raw emotion that comes through in his singing, which is palpable.
His hometown Ventimiglia sits along the shores of the sun-kissed Italian Riviera, bordering the south of France and Monte-Carlo. Franco’s love for singing began as a member of the local church choir at the age of 6, setting the tone for his musical journey. This auspicious start would set the tone for the path his career would take. Fans over the years have been inspired by his talent and determination, supporting his career from the moment he made his way to “his adopted home” in Florida.
What started in a church in Italy has since taken him across the United States where he has appeared on countless stages. A consummate showman, Franco’s has captivated music lovers across the country with sellouts crowds at theaters, arenas and concert halls. He has performed for Mr. and Mrs. Donald Trump and their members at the prestigious Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach and he is in constant demand to share his passion on large stages with symphony orchestras, festivals and corporate events.
One of his many career highlights was his sold-out concert at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston, prior to a successful Tv Campaign aired on NBC and CBS networks, where Franco was accompanied by multi Emmy award music composer and Tony Bennett’s music director Mike Renzi. His music has been showcased at various charity events, including WXEL’s Women with Wings and Wisdom and the Annual National Gala Event for the American Heart Association.
His inspirations are drawn from classic luminaries such as Caruso, Bocelli and Pavarotti. These influences were blended together as he took audiences on a Musical Journey Through Italy, in his acclaimed concert series: “A Tribute to Andrea Bocelli and Friends”. Corso’s talent is galvanized by his ability to render any of his songs in different languages, including English, Italian, French and Spanish.
In June 2013, Franco took another step in his journey with his debut EP of 5 original songs.
The Press has praised his original song “Angel” with rave reviews and in Franco’s eyes it is his love letter to all those who have guided and influenced his path from the beginning of his career until now. It is a testament to his passion and perseverance, but mostly it is a realization of a dream that a talented 6-year-old boy had in Italy years ago.
