Val's career started at the tender age of 3 years old, when his father brought him up on stage, during one of his concerts. Val sang a full song, in front of 2,000 people, while his dad accompanied him on guitar. The child singer's performance was so incredible that the audience gave him a standing ovation. Some people even thought he was really a "little person"!
Since then, Val has studied classical voice, theater and dance, done television and movies, and sang with some of the best bands in L.A. He has performed around the world including: Japan, Italy, France, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
Val has had the pleasure to work with such greats as: Dick Clark, Julio Iglesias, Bobby Rydell, Edgar Winter, Wayne Brady, The Beach Boys, K.C. and the sunshine band and Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons.
Val has been called ". . .a dynamite presence on stage, who can hypnotize an audience with his voice." Singer Josh Groban says, "I love what you do!" Val's versatility and soul as a performer are his trademarks. He is currently working on his solo project in Los Angeles., and other content
