Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1962, Mark Janicello made his first solo appearance as a boy soprano at four years old and made his professional debut at age16. In an amazingly versatile and very eventful career, he first conquered both the New York Subways and the New York audiences as a street singer, winning the “KFC Musical Feast” and the title “America’s Best Street Performer.” His $15.000, prize-winning appearance in New York’s Grand Central Station featured multiple musical and vocal styles and was based on the idea: “What if Elvis never died but just turned into Pavarotti?” From the Subways of New York, he then made the leap to established theatres and concert halls performing in Carnegie Hall, The Apollo Theatre, The Grand Ole Opry, Avery Fisher Hall, and the Zürich Opera House, among many, many others. In the intervening years, has performed in 49 countries.
Mark’s many talents shine as brightly as the facets of his incomparable personality. He has starred or co-starred in over 100 stage productions, including Operas, Operettas, Musicals, Plays, and Concerts. In the last five years, he has filmed over 90 national and international television-, film- and commercial projects. Additionally, he has recorded 38 CDs in every conceivable musical style and has recorded and performed with both operatic superstars as well as Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Emmy-Award Winners. His repertoire is vast encompassing nearly 500 songs in 6 different languages. He can perform with live musicians, video walls, and/or studio-quality orchestra tracks, dependent upon the performance situation and budget.
Mark’s latest project is the Award-Winning Comedy “The Finellis Movie.” a musical comedy, which will be coming to Amazon Prime and Apple TV in January 2022.
