When I was first directed to AJ Silvaâ€™s YouTube Channel over a year ago he was only sporting seven cover songs and a several hundred subscribers. Today, this sensational, soon to be teen, has over two dozen video covers, nearly 5,000 subscribers and over a â€œHalf a Millionâ€ page views!
The Success of Aj Silva can be contributed to many factors, with the largest one being that this boy is just flat out amazing!Â His ability to stay in perfect pitch, showcasing his vocal range effortlessly on every song, perfect timing and breath control, in addition to his creative artistic vocal flavor makes Aj Silva the young artist to watch in the months to come!
I have been extremely honored to be a part of his promotional team effort over his past year! While he has held a high profile on this site in the side bars and in the header banner, prior to this update he has only had one full feature article.
Iâ€™m happy that we can finally share a little more with you about this amazing boy with the golden voice called Aj Silva.
In his introductory feature article we learned much about his background and working with his father behind the control board in their home studio.Â This was where Ajâ€™s musical adventure began and continues to flourish!
This young artists ability to capture a song, make it his own, do his own arrangements along with adding as many as four part harmonies has proven to be his trademark in music video creation.
Of course since then his videos have become even more creative using special lighting and amazing background imaging along with even some enchanting outdoor creations. While all of this has been beneficial and made his YouTube Channel more interesting itâ€™s his vocals that have captured the attention of millions from around the globe!
AJ Silva has been a very busy twelve yr old since first appearing here on this site. Like most youngsters his age he attends school, enjoys sports, playing video games, reading books, and spending time with his friends.
In addition to the normal activities of a preteen, you’ll find AJ in a recording studio or dancing at KDS Studios in Orlando Florida, formally (Trans Continental Studios). If youâ€™re not familiar with KDS Studios, you should know that itâ€™s very well known for their work with major recording artists. Aaron Carter started out at KDS as well as other artist like Justin Timberlake and NSYNC. KDS is a world class recording studio along with dance and choreographers.
Aj has been taking piano lessons now for several months and his guitar lessons began only last year.Â You would think that he has been playing for years when you hear and watch him on his music videos.Â Whatâ€™s even more amazing his that his professional vocal lessons only started last year! To say that this boy is a musical prodigy would be an understatement as his natural ability to play just about any musical instrument he picks up is simply astounding!
AJ Silva released his first EP this past December titled Acoustic Christmas which was featured here for several months following its release. This Debut EP is a collection of standards like â€œRockin Around The Christmas Treeâ€ and Billy Gilman’s â€œGods Alive and Wellâ€. You can still find it featured here where you will be directed to iTunes.Â Or you can also visit his store page on his domain site to learn more about how to acquire it from other online stores.
AJ recently played his first gig at the Hawaiian Grindz in Oviedo, Florida where he accompanied himself on his 814 Taylor Guitar to a very pleased crowd.
Among the songs that he performed for the excited audiance, Aj played his favorite, James Taylor’s, â€œFire and Rainâ€.
While working in the studio on his next cover, AJ was inspired to do a tribute for the late Whitney Houston. After receiving his dadâ€™s approval, Aj began to learn Whitneyâ€™s iconic hit â€œI Will Always Love Youâ€.
Watch in total amazement his new video tribute to this truly amazing Diva.Â Iâ€™m sure that Whitney would be extremely honored could she hear this today!
Congratulations Aj Silva for another example of true vocal excellence in this amazing performance!
Ajsil has done a variety of live USTREAM performances and Twitter Chats over the past few months. I especially enjoy listening to Aj live.
