”Love is All” by Yanni
Bianca’s performances always put a smile on everybody’s face including the judges. She sang “Love is All” written by Yanni who wrote this song for Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world. Bianca did justice to the song by singing it with much energy and passion. A little birdie tells us that her father made the track from scratch for this competition because the karaoke version is not available in the market. We are blown away by the talent and dedication she and her family bring to this competition.
Bianca, 18, recently graduated from high school and is starting college this Fall at American Musical and Dramatic Arts Academy for musical theatre. Bianca was discovered by Anumita Mukherjee, Director and Producer of Next Broadway Star, during one of her powerful underground performances at Grand Central Station in New York.
Bianca always knew she wanted to be a star on Broadway. It all started at a very young age when her father, the musician of the family, heard her singing the theme song of a popular Hispanic soap opera called “Nus Clasita”. Her father recognized her potential and decided to train her to be a professional singer.
Bianca soon began performing in public places including the local family Church, parties, and in her father’s band to get the much needed exposure and experience.
Bianca’s mother also plays a huge role in her life. She works as an accountant to support and provide for her family. Despite financial difficulties, she enrolled Bianca in piano, violin, dancing, and recorder classes.
Her hard work paid-off when Bianca was accepted to The Professional Performing Arts High School after a few auditions. The school honed Bianca’s musical skills and gave her the tools necessary to succeed in the world of performing arts.
