announced Ghaleb, an internationally known Venezuelan-born tenor, accompanied by Broadway soprano Jodi Keogan, will perform a one-night-only dinner show Monday, November 25 at 7 pm.
The three-course dinner and show costs $50 per person. Reservations are requested by calling (239) 659-7008.
“Ghaleb’s voice is really strong; very operatic and mesmerizing,” says Marceno. “He can carry a note for a long time! His inspiration in his performance draws from the tenors he most admires such as Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti and Franco Corelli.”
Glaheb has sung in numerous countries, touching the hearts of thousands of fans in countries such as Italy, Russia, Austria and Canada. His piercing vocals have wowed crowds and impressed iconic figures who have come to see him perform – people such as Michael Jordan and Rod Stewart.
In 2008, American Idol aired Season Seven, which featured Ghaleb, who made the list of finalists, and was welcomed to Hollywood with a hug and a kiss from Paula Abdul. Ghaleb’s drawing power was in full effect in 2014, when he gave a concert that sold out the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Ghaleb, who is also a classical Flamenco guitarist, has already recorded two CDs – “Musica” and “Romance and Alegria with two more CDs on the way – a pop/classic compilation called “Emotions” and also “Masterpieces by Ghaleb.”
In 2015, Ghaleb was selected as the main singer of the national anthem at the home games of the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers.
Ghaleb started singing for family and friends when he was just four years old. Two years later, he sang in public for the first time, winning first place in a “Festival of the Children” event in Venezuela. At age 12, he received classical training at Sebastian Echeverria Lozano School in Venezuela. At 16, he worked with a Venezuelan television station, flying around to different cities to perform at charity events that benefitted children’s hospitals. Ghaleb arrived in the U.S. at age 21, where he began singing at charity events benefitting cancer research. Much of what Ghaleb has become was self-taught, and his singing resonates with audiences.
“I love his style as a pop tenor,” says Marceno, who has heard him sing countless times. “He brings old songs back to life.
“His music, his charisma – people come, and they smile, they dance, they cry. For some people, it’s very emotional. At the end, everyone stands up and applauds.”
