Riverhead singer to perform on international stage
A Riverhead singer is heading to Italy to perform on the international stage.
Stephano Andreotti, 23, won first place in the Festival of Song USA national competition, earning him a trip to Palermo, Sicily.
His voice coach, Adelphi professor Kelley Nassief, isn't surprised by his musical success.
"There was obvious talent right in the beginning," she said.
Andreotti says he hopes to touch the hearts of people with his voice and enjoy his moment in the spotlight.
Andreotti leaves for Sicily on Sept. 13 for three months. A GoFundMe page has been created to help him with living expenses.
