Introducing the new voice of romance, French singer Vincent Niclo with his new album, Romantique. Born into a musical family, Niclo's first teacher was his father, who taught him all about music and educated him in music theory. The turning point came for Niclo when he heard Luciano Pavarotti singing "Nessun dorma" on the radio. The sheer power and emotion of the great man's voice so moved Niclo that he realized that singing was the path he also wished to follow. After several years of training with Paris Opera's Thierry Dran, supported by a successful modelling career, Vincent Niclo was ready to realize his dream. His lucky break came when he sang for Celine Dion, who immediately invited him to open her series of acclaimed, sold-out concerts. Other collaborations followed, including with the acclaimed singer, Charles Aznavour, Il Divo and the great Plácido Domingo. "Singing is my whole life" says Vincent. "It's who I am, it's how I'm happy and I couldn't imagine ever doing anything else."
