Sal Valentinetti at the Paramount Theatre

Long Island’s own Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, the America’s Got Talent Finalist and Italian American crooner will be performing all of your favorite classics from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, The Rat Pack and more. Sal is coming to the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, Long Island on Sunday, August 18th for a 7:00 pm show. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Sal Valentinetti is best known for his flawless vocals, larger than life personality and his heart of gold. Born August 26, 1995, to Steve and Maria Valentinetti, Sal was raised in the small town of Bethpage, New York. From a very young age, Sal was influenced by his grandmother, Tina Valentinetti, to love the musical genius of the classic crooner sounds of Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra.

At the age of fifteen, Sal realized the hidden talent he possessed and began performing his flawless tribute to the great Frank Sinatra. During a horn lesson, his instructor asked him to choose a song to play and Valentinetti started singing the lyrics to a song he used to listen to with his grandmother – Bobby Darin’s “Mack the Knife.” Taken aback, the instructor immediately urged him to start taking singing lessons. With further encouragement from his beloved Uncle Joe, Valentinetti started to take his skill seriously. Before long the world would come to know him as “Sal the Voice.”

In 2016, Season 11 of the NBC hit show “America’s Got Talent” was taken by storm with his talents. The 20-year-old college student who delivered pizza for his cousin’s restaurant was now in the spotlight. Belting out the classic Frank Sinatra hit “My Way,” Sal not only received a standing ovation, but received the coveted ‘Golden Buzzer’ from judge Heidi Klum.

Ever since America’s Got Talent, Sal’s life has been a roller coaster ride. These days, singing is all he does. Valentinetti has been touring all over the nation, selling out shows.

“It’s really been incredible to see the amount of people, especially from Long Island, who have rallied around me,” said Valentinetti, “There’s no place like home.”

Sal has since racked up over 450 million internet views worldwide and the charismatic crooner has been invited to appear in hundreds of sold out performances around the world. It is safe to say that Sal is only getting started.
