Amaury Vassili (born 8 June 1989 in Rouen, Upper Normandy) is a French singer and the youngest professional tenor in the world. His debut album Vincero from 2009 went double platinum in France, and he got international success with releases in Canada, South Africa and South Korea. He was selected internally to represent the French Republic in Düsseldorf.
The young tenor will sing a song entitled “Sonniu” which is Corsican for “Dream”. “Sonniu” was composed by Daniel Moyne and Quentin Bachelet and written by Jean-Pierre Marcellesi. The song is a Bolero that goes crescendo and is said to perfectly suit the voice of Vassili. Even tough a French version exists, the song will be performed in the Italian dialect spoken on Corsica. The song was recorded a few weeks ago and is not part of Amaury’s latest album.
