In our continuing search for rising young talent from every corner of the globe we often come across talent that has already claimed great success in their part of the world, yet not found their way to international attention. It’s with great pride that we introduce for the very first time here at Rivenmaster’s Place Sebastián Urdiales.

Thirteen Year Old Sebastián Urdiales

 Thirteen year old Sebastián Urdiales is one of the fastest growing young talents to come out of Mexico City, Mexico! Sebastián who is currently in the 7th grade is a talented young singing performer and actor. He comes with an impressive resume and growing list of experiences both on stage, screen and television.

As soon as I stumbled on his YouTube Channel I wrote to his parents for the full story behind Sebastián. I was soon in contact with his amazing family and well on the way to bringing you his story.

Sebastián was born in Mexico City on September 15th,2001 and his family consists of his Mother, Father, and older sister Olivia, who also serves as his best friend.

Since he was very young, he has had a great interest in nature and animals. His favorite hobby was to go out of town to go fishing and camping. For this reason Sebastián has developed a keen awareness of ecology and care for the environment. Sebastián also has personally rescued a number of pets including snakes, hamsters, parrots, cats, canaries, frogs, turtles, fish and dogs.

Since 5 years old he has practiced Taekwondo and attended a number of competitions throughout his country.

In the same sports club where Sebastián practiced Taekwondo, his sister took dance classes, called Latin Rhythms. Sebastián expressed a great interest in what his sister was doing, but was too small to perform the choreography routines. However, due to his insistence to take dance classes, his Dad spoke to the teacher. The dance instructor said she would start up a sample class for a younger child in order to appease him, but when Sebastián surprised the teacher with his ability, she soon enrolled him as a dancer. He was the smallest in the class, but this fact did not seem to faze him in the slightest.

Andrew Muccitelli, Singer, Showman, Musician and Performer

Andrew Muccitelli ProfReceiving letters of introduction is just one of the many ways that this site is led to young talented musicians and vocalists. It was my Facebook friend Anthony Berube that led me to a young man with a voice bigger than life itself, and a talent for showmanship that outshines most youngsters his age.

I’m talking about the amazing thirteen year old vocalist and musician Andrew Muccitelli.

After receiving the tip from Anthony, I immediately went to Andrew’s YouTube Site to check out all of his videos.  What I found was truly outstanding and I could not wait to share it with everyone so I posted Andrews’s video shown below on May 20th to Young Artists Global.  I received a few comments all stating how talented Andrew was and it was from those comments that I learned that Andrew had been a participant on X-Factor Season Six.

This only increased my determination to learn more about Andrew. Happily, I was able to get in touch with Andrews father, who shared the following  about his extremely talented son.

Andrew at PianoAndrew Muccitelli was born on December 1, 1998 and resides in Westlake Village, CA with his parents. One night, Andrew saw Cher’s Farewell Tour special on TV. He was mesmerized by the lights, Cher’s costumes, and the stage. That is when Andrew first started to love music. He would sing around the house, at friends’ houses, and even in the car.

Until age eight, Andrew would just sing casually. He joined a music school which allowed him to perform at local venues with other students from the school. At Andrew’s first performance, he did covers of songs by Queen. Despite being nervous, when Andrew walked on stage, he felt at home.  For four years, he continued to perform around town with the music school.

At age 10, Andrew decided he wanted to play piano after watching Lady GaGa play some of her songs acoustic.

When Andrew was twelve, Andrew was offered to become the new lead singer of rock band SLATR. Even though the members of SLATR were only 11-13 years old, they were covering bands such as Rush and Led Zeppelin at their shows. They won Shredfest 2011, a battle of the bands, for their performance.
