About Amaury Vassili

Following an astonishing first album that went double platinum in France (over 200,000 copies sold), a sell-out gig at L’Olympia, a duet with Katherine Jenkins (the new UK classic-pop crossover star whose albums have sold 4 million copies, five of them making #1 in the charts) and international success (over 50,000 album copies sold worldwide with releases in Canada, South Africa, South Korea and the UK), the world’s youngest tenor is back!

In November 2010, Amaury Vassili released his new album Cantero, whose title announces a wonderful combination of original compositions by Davide Esposito and Jean-Félix Lalanne and passionate new versions of classics from the Italian repertoire such as Caruso, Con Te Partiro (Andrea Bocelli), Dietro L’amore (Toto Cutugno) and Il Volo (Zucchero).

The Eurovision track, Sognu, was written especially for Amaury by Jean-Pierre Marcellesi and Julie Miller in Corsican, the own langage of the island of beauty Corsica (southeast of the French mainland), with music by Daniel Moyne and Quentin Bachelet. This song once again demonstrates the young prodigy’s formidable talent and his mastery of the tenor’s art.
