Michéal Castaldo recently released his digital single of “Maria, Lo Sapevi Tu? (Mary, Did You Know?)”, just in time for the Christmas in July celebrations. This digital single is available on all major online music services.
Castaldo, an Italian tenor who sings in the style of Andrea Bocelli, chose this modern-day holiday classic because it is a compellingly beautiful reminder of the Virgin Mary’s unwavering faith and unconditional dedication to deliver the Son of God to the world. The song honors the miraculous gift of life all birth mothers have given to their children and the boundless hopes, dreams and potential their gift of life means for the future of mankind.
Micheal performs his spiritual rendition in Italian, with a recording in English due this fall. The arrangement predominantly focuses on Flamenco guitar accompaniment. Castaldo, who studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, has become synonymous with authentic Italian experiences and products for Americans in love with Italian culture. As a vocalist, he has toured North America and Europe, including performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Rainbow Room, Shea Stadium, Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre and Italy’s Teatro F. Cilea and Pescara Opera House. His passionate performances consistently transport audiences to his native Italian world of beauty and sweeping romanticism.
