Michéal Castaldo Releases New Original Digi Single,
“Amo L’America” (American Love Affair) Oct. 2 at 12PM EST
Michéal Castaldo will officially release his digital single of “Amo L’America” (American Love Affair) on Vital Records, October 2, 2015 at 12PM EST. This is an original song written by Michéal Castaldo, Stein Berg Svendsen, and Benny Kay and produced for Majestic Castle Music Productions, New York, New York. Recorded and performed by Castaldo as part of the Festival Della Canzone, Italiana Di NY, and televised by RAI TV, this upliftingly joyous recording relates the immigrant experience of leaving one’s motherland, family, and friends for the promise of a better life in America. This digital single is available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, and other digital online music e-tail stores worldwide.
Castaldo, an Italian tenor who sings in the style of Andrea Bocelli, is honoring the song because it’s so relevant in the lives and background of countless Italian Americans in this country today. Most of us have parents and or grandparents who have relocated to America, often leaving their loved ones and the comfort of their beloved country behind.
In the latest incarnation of “Amo L’America” (American Love Affair), Michéal goes deep into his story and the story of countless others that took the same path in life. As he explains it, “The song is about dreamers thinking that the grass is greener on the other side, only to find out that they are in control of their own destiny and they have the power to realize their dreams...if they work really hard and make plenty of sacrifices. The Italians living in Italy dream of coming to America (the land of opportunity) and the Italians living in America dream of one day going back to discover their roots and the home of their ancestors. The song is about seizing the opportunities we are given in life.” The song’s moving video can be viewed on YouTube at tinyurl.com/AmoLAmericaOnYoutube
Castaldo, who studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, has become synonymous with authentic Italian experiences and products for Americans in love with Italian culture. As a vocalist, he has toured North America and Europe, including performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Rainbow Room, Shea Stadium, Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and Italy’s Teatro F. Cilea and Pescara Opera House. His passionate performances consistently transport audiences to his native Italian world of beauty and sweeping romanticism.
The song will be available on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and Tidal.
