Dubbed “America’s new romantic singing sensation,” Brooklyn-born, Nashville-based tenor Anthony Nunziata is kicking off the upcoming holiday weekend with ‘My Italian Broadway Christmas’ Friday, Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. at The Studio in Mizner Park, 201 W. Plaza Real in Boca Raton.
The powerhouse performer and Carnegie Hall headliner whose vocal style has been compared to Michael Bublé, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bolton will serenade the audience with his soaring tenor voice, singing timeless songs from his Italian, Broadway and holiday repertoires, including soul-stirring renditions of “O Holy Night,” “O Sole Mio,” “Somewhere,” “Funniculi, Funnicula,” “The Christmas Song” and other classics.
Nunziata will be joined by special guests and South Florida favorites:
Avery Sommers, Broadway, movie, TV and Cabaret star (Ain’t Misbehavin,’ Chicago, Showboat, the Kravis Center and The Colony Hotel’s Royal Room).
Chris Ruggiero, an “old soul” at 23 and “doo wop master” who has performed with Bobby Rydell, The Duprees, The Drifters and Tito Puente, Jr.
Deborah Silver, whose album “Glitter & Grits” was voted Broadway World’s Best Commercial Recording. She has recorded a series of duets with performers such as Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, Jack Jones, Freddy Cole, Steve Tyrell, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tony Orlando and Ronnie Milsap, among others.
