“Music is all around us, you just need to hear it”.
Rivenmasterâ€™s Place is extremely proud to present a young talent who is taking Brazil by storm.Â Fifteen year old Victor Santos is not only an exceptional vocalist but also has a wonderful personality that shows through in every performance.
Brazilian born in Recife, northeast from Brazil, Victor grew up in a musical family and learned about music from a very early age watching his fatherÂ (Singer Louro Santos) create his music both in writing and in the recording studio.Â Victor quickly picked up on his fatherâ€™s style and learned all of his songs.Â This strong home musical influence coupled with music he found on the internet by youthful pop artists has been the musical driving force behind Victors singing career.
When Victor was only 10 years old he was labeled â€œThe Revelation of Carnival 2008â€ in Recife. Â Due to this label, major newspapers also picked up on it and stories written about him also carried that title.
Victor has an amazing vocal range enhanced by almost pitch perfect performances which surprises and impresses every audience he entertains.Â While his talent is quite natural Victor has gained much experience from participating in a number of contests since first beginning to sing.
His first stage performances were in the school festivals where he attended.Â Because he won three years in a row, the school board asked him not to participate his fourth year so that others might have an opportunity to win.
Victor has been an active student of the Pernambuco Conservatory of Music since 2006, and his repertoire includes music ranging from Michael Jackson to Luis Gonzaga.
His first major experience was participating in the CD Frevo “Wings Frevo” composed by the renowned composer J. Michiles. Â In addition to this rewarding experience he was also featured in his fatherâ€™s ( Louro Santos) second Music DVD. Â His inclusion in this special production has proven to be a real launching pad for Victor, helping him amass many new fans. This Father / Son act has quickly gained much popularity, charming countless audiences in Brazil and their fame is now reaching abroad to both Europe and the US.
This amazing Musical DVD was recorded in the town of Bayeux in Paraiba.Â Many beautiful arrangements by Louro are included and watching both Father and son perform is spellbinding.
Today Louro and Victor share the stage together and the songs which are most requested are; Retrato, Anjo, Paquerar, Pense em Mim, O Nosso Amor, among others.Â Many of their performances have an acoustic set and the blending of their vocals brings the crowd to their feet.
Victor performs songs like â€œIâ€™ll be thereâ€, â€œBenâ€ and â€œMusic and Meâ€, by Michael Jackson, â€œLove of my lifeâ€ by Freddy Mercury, â€œYesterdayâ€ by the Beatles and â€œComo via VocÃªâ€ by Roberto Carlos.Â While these songs really showcase the talent of young Victor he is also eloquent in singing the romantic compositions by his father.
In early June 2010, the duo signed to Universal Music Brazil. Through the label, they recorded the CD and DVD titled AMOR ETERNO which was launched in September 2010.
