Fernando Varela

The story behind Fernando Varela begins and ends with a voice. A voice that the press is constantly comparing to some of the world’s greatest. Fernando’s powerful voice tells the tale of a breathtaking tenor whose spirit and determination has defied the odds.

He has also performed his own fifty date tour across the North America. Varela signed with German record label, Deutsche Grammophon and United States Verve Label Group (Universal Music Group companies) and released his new album “Vivere,” March 2017. Vivere, recorded at the famous Abbey Road Recording Studio in the London and produced by Belgian producer Patrick Hamilton [Katherine Jenkins, Alfie Boe, David Garrett], is a classical pop crossover album that perfectly showcases Fernando’s infectious optimism, and soaring vocals. His PBS Special aired in March 2017 and he will begin International TV specials and headlining his own American and European tours in the end of 2017.
