Destino Live in Concert
The four celebrated young talents -- Giovanni Amenta, Leon Leontaridis, Joey Niceforo and Paul Ouellette - recently joined to form Destino, whose name means "destiny" in Italian and Spanish. Before forming the group the four tenors, who have varied musical backgrounds including opera, gospel, R&B, soul, jazz, musical theater and pop, were pursuing successful solo careers - from singing at Carnegie Hall and for the Pope to a #1 radio single. After being hired to work on a project together, the men realized that they possessed a strong chemistry both on-stage and off. And with that, Destino was born. Destino's members have received much critical and media acclaim. Insight Magazine said, "Joey Niceforo has one of the most robust and exciting voices I've heard in a long time. He's riveting on stage..." Said the Surrey Leader about Leontaridis, "A voice like Leon's comes once in a hundred years." Acclaimed vocal coach Elaine Overholt praised Amenta by saying, "never have I been so excited by such a talent." And the Victoria Times said, "Ouellette displays an impressive ability to imbue a song with emotion."
