Singer Amaury Vassili From France
French Tenor: Amaury Vassili
Amaury Vassili, the young French tenor, recently came to my attention due to his participation in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.
He hails from Ile-de-France and at 21-years-old was named the "world's youngest tenor". Having heard a number of his songs, for a guy so young, he does have an amazingly rich and powerful voice. Think Josh Groban and Pavarotti rolled into one and you have Amaury Vassili.
The plaudits continue to be bestowed upon this young man, and as one Amazon reviewer remarked: ...(you) hear the voice of an angel and witness the birth of a new star.
This page is a journey of discovery of this new star, and I hope you enjoy travelling along with me.

Being a Brit, I had not realised that one of England's most patriotic songs had been translated into another language.
