David Serero is a French baritone, actor, writer and producer who is quickly gaining an international reputation for his style and singing voice. At only 32 years old he has already performed more than 600 concerts and performances throughout the world which have been broadcast to an audience of over 30 million worldwide.
David headlined a sold-out show at the Dominion Theatre for his West End solo debut and has since appeared in such venues as Wembley Stadium, the Royal College of Music, Opera Garnier Paris, the Eiffel Tower, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Budapest Opera House and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam to name a few.
This new album is being released on March 15th. It contains 13 great songs from such hit shows as Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Fiddler on the Roof, Les Miserables, Camelot, My Fair Lady, Show Boat, Man of La Mancha, Beauty and the Beast and My Fair Lady. How could anyone possibly go wrong with a line-up like that?
This album richly repays repeated listenings. Anyone new to Serero’s style and accent may initially be put off but familiarity vastly improves the listening experience. Listening to it a number of times will truly display Serero’s vast range and talent and will be extremely enjoyable. The playlist on this album is exemplary with one great hit after another and Serero does full justice to them expertly accompanied by a full Philharmonic orchestra. Mention must be made in particular of “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “Ol’ Man River”, “On the Street Where You Live”, “Stars” and “Some Enchanted Evening.” Put this on your music system and an enchanted evening’s entertainment is guaranteed.
