Gleeful - really!

Self confessed "Gleek" Anthony Callea must be pleased with the thought that a Iowa High School Show Choir has chosen to perform one of his songs during their 2011 - 2012 season.

Anthony's beautiful "Per Sempre"  has been picked by the West Branch choir as their selected Ballad component for the two-month competition season.

West Branch will perform a set of five songs selected to demonstrate the team’s wide-ranging talent:

• Skillet’s “Hero” (hard rock)

• E-Type’s “Eurofighter” (techno)

• Anthony Callea’s “Per Sempre” (ballad)

• Marc Anthony’s “I’ve Got You” (Latin salsa)

• Bon Jovi’s “Have A Nice Day” (rock)

As anyone familiar with the Television series Glee is aware, these competitons are a very big deal, involving months of training for the singers, dancers and musicians involved.

Callean Pride!

Please enjoy some pictures of, and quotes about Anthony's amazing performace at last weeks Stockholm Pride Event!

I'm so happy I got to see this live, really loved the version of 'Somewhere over the rainbow'.

I didn't really know your work all that well before last night, but was very impressed. Along with Alcazar, you were a real highlight

Anthony Callea went amazing!

As he sang “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, hundreds of coloured balloons were released into the sky. He has a great voice and sings with a lot of passion and enthusiasm.

Management have hinted at the possibilty of video to be shared  -  lets hope so!
