(skip to 1:30 for the singing. Yes, 90 seconds of self-indulgent dancing later….)

Thanks(?) Andrew for finding this. There’s also this from Carmen (guess who sings Carmen?), and this (why the hell bother to sing it in Italian??!?!?!!?)

I’m almost speechless. For one thing, I’m loathe to make too many suppositions, since I can find very little information about him, even on Wikipedia! (yes, I checked in Portuguese too….) I gleaned from his Myspace page that he’s from Brazil, in addition to remembering all the reasons why I abandoned Myspace like the plague that it is.

So I almost don’t know how to proceed. It’s pretty terrifying, but at the same time It’s just good enough to warrant a lot of additional questions: he has fans, after a fashion, and his voice isn’t really that bad all things considered. (and by “all things,” I mean his testicles) He apparently was on television, and he’s in an upcoming movie called “La Riña.” But somehow the package is just too creepy. Who is this man? Where did he come from? How did he discover his……talent? Will he open for Vitas or Krassimir? Will he break through to more “legitimate” classical roles for men who sing like ladies? I don’t think I want to find out.

Oh, and did I mention this?

This is the cover of his album “A Question of Honor” released in 2007 by Atração. (I assume this is Portugeuse for Atrocious) You can download tracks from this album on Amazon.com. “Enjoy,” and if you find out anything more, let me know…I’m off to bed: all this researching has made me tired! (plus I can’t wait for the nightmares I will surely have now!)

p.s. I’m in the middle of editing the previously promised clip of my favorite opera drag queen, so check back soon…..

    I’d also like to point out that this is the most hideous cover of a Kate Bush song I have ever heard.

    A fairly competitive category, apparently….
