Mario Frangoulis, like Il Divo and Amici Forever, has been inspirational to our founding members. His soulful music was introduced to the rest of us by our very own Rania and we can certainly understand and appreciate why the Greek tenor has captivated audiences around the world.

Mario Frangoulis's remarkable story belies the fact that he is a young tenor from Greece. Born in Africa - in colonial Rhodesia, as it was becoming the nation of Zimbabwe - he survived a childhood marked by hardships both at home and in the world outside. At the age of four, his mother found a home for him with her sister in Greece, at a time when the political situation in Africa was explosive and dangerous. Raised by his aunt in Greece and separated from his beloved older brother, Mario was surrounded with a large extended family. Today, he speaks fondly of both sets of parents and the feeling for music they instilled in him. He studied the violin and even composed a bit when he was a boy. At the age of 17, he was sent to London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama to study acting. The stage was an obvious choice because, among other things, Mario was considered handsome enough to be a matinee idol. In fact, he has already wowed audiences on London's West End as the dashing young hero in both Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera.
