Artist of the day: Julian Silva
He sang the national anthem before a stadium full of roaring fans at a University of South Florida game. He delivered a soulful rendition of Amazing Grace for the National Day of Prayer at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. He starred in leading roles of local productions of Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and Mulan. And, he accomplished all this before reaching a double-digit age.
This year, Julian Silva of Dover embarked on a national tour of Les Miserables, portraying Gavroche. This role in Cameron Mackintosh's stage version marks the beginning of future success.
"I always wanted to be on Broadway, and here I am," he said. "I really want my own music on CDs, and someday I want my own tour."
