He says, "I take great pride delivering these songs of our people all over the world.” He has incredible vocal agility, flexibility and a sublime natural ability to color notes with grace and beauty. Whether in the realm of the classics or the traditional music of his homeland, the power and clarity in his voice expresses great truth and rich conviction. He has featured in many challenging Operatic roles, including Don Jose in Carmen, and Romeo in Romeo & Juliet, and has had many distinguished and acclaimed solo performances in his relatively short time as a professional artist.
