With a voice that melts hearts and instills Passion, Franco Corso, "The Voice of Romance" continues to mesmerize audiences worldwide. His distinctive and powerful Baritone Voice has been called Elegant and Provocative.
Over the past Century each era has been both shaped and defined by the prevailing musical influences of the time. It has always been an innovative and passionate talent that has captured the spirit of the times. The same holds true with versatile and talented new-comer, Italian Crooner, Franco Corso.
Franco was born and raised in San Remo, Italy, where he spent most of his childhood with his grandparents who taught him all things Italian, from food to romance, art and literature. By the age of 8 he was singing in the church choir and performing at private and public events throughout Italy.
As a typical teen, Franco stopped singing for awhile and studied in school. He went to University for hospitality and upon graduation found himself working in the hotel industry. A chance meeting led him to a job in the United States and brought him to Palm Beach, Florida where he lives today. Once people around him learned he could sing with that incredible and provocative voice they encouraged him to do just that and only that. The overwhelming and enthusiastic response from his audience convinced Franco that the United States was the place to develop his career.
Inspired by Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Julio Iglesias and enthusiastically supported by his fan base and rave reviews, Franco has performed worldwide to sold-out Theatres, The Trump Organization in Palm Beach and for dignitaries and celebrities, such as Sophia Loren and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
His debut Album “Passione” is a collection of some of the world’s most famous romantic and classic Italian-American songs. Songs like “Il Mio Mondo” (You’re My World) and “Amore Scusami” (My Love Forgive Me) showcase Franco’s vocal range from soft timbre to full bravado. The timeless classic “You Don’t Have To Say You Love me” originally from Dusty Springfield adds an element of mainstream sensibility.
One of Franco’s most appealing qualities in his music is the ability to perform every song both in Italian and English.
Whether singing accappella, backed by a band or an orchestra, Franco believes in connecting with his audience.
Franco’s second album “Amore” is a great collection of love songs. Two of the many standout songs included in the Album are the new versions of: “My Way” and “You Raise Me Up”, both performed in Italian and English.
His newest Album “Italiano" is a remarkable collection of popular and modern Italian songs. Timeless songs like: “Volare”, “Aldila’” will make you fall in love with Italy again. Franco gives the most powerful and emotional performance in ‘The Godfather” song. Also included in “Italiano” the new remakes of “Quando, Quando, Quando” and Louie Primo’s Hit “Luna Mezzo Mare” (“Lazy Mary”).
Once fans listen to his three albums: “Passione”, “Amore” and “Italiano”, they will realize they “can’t help falling in love” with Franco Corso.
Franco Corso transcends the trends and is here to stay.
