“For Sebastian, music is not a hobby, it is his life!”— Paul Janoski
Sebastian Paul JanoskiÂ was born on a warm summers evening just before midnight on June 22, 1999.Â Having been born into a creative, artisticÂ family to begin with, it was only a matter of timeÂ before his “gift” would materialize. Â As a toddler it was clear that Sebastian had a knack for theatrics.Â When Sebastian was about a year old his mom peeked around the hallway corner to see what he was up to, and to her amazement, there he was placing his limbs in a twisted fashion, face pushed up against the wall, setting the stage before his cry for help.Â Clearly Sebastian loved attention, but that was only the beginning.
When Sebastian was three, his parents took him to see his Auntâ€™s band perform.Â When his Aunt Ann, a vocalist in several bands, sang the Beatles tune, “Come Together”, Sebastian was completely entranced.Â He will tell you today that at that moment he knew his destiny was to be on stage.
Sam Santiago is not only unbelievably talented but has one of the most amazing vocal abilities that I have ever seen in a 7 year old boy!
Only a few days ago while visiting Facebook, I took notice of a post by Sam Verlinden of a young man that immediately captured my attention.
He is, seven year old Sam Santiago.Â What really charmed me was his vocal quality along with his charismatic personality which really shined through while singing his song.Â It took me only moments to publish his video to the video of the day list and contact his parents for an article.Â I am delighted to introduce to you this young performer, who is not only well ahead of the game with his vocal talent but already a star performer who is becoming more and more in demand in both California and the Philippines.
Sam started singing when he was about four years old. His family moved to Corona from Mission Viejo when he first began to show an interest in music. Stuck in traffic with not much to entertain him but Mom, his brother, and the radio, led Sam to find his singing talent. Kelly Clarkson and her hit singles â€œSince Youâ€™ve Been Goneâ€ and â€œBecause of Youâ€ were his favorite songs. As he continued in his new found talent, Sam realized that Kelly was truly his idol at that time.
