His boundless passion for music and for sharing it with his fans tumbles headlong out of him, and he can hardly contain his excitement when he talks about a new song and the ways he wants to sing it. Brimming over with the joy of singing, he reaches out to audiences around the world with his soaring tenor vocals, touching people’s emotions and filling them with the sorrow or joy, love and happiness he feels when he is performing a song.
Niclo never knew a time in his life when he wasn’t singing, or when one of his parents wasn’t sitting next to him and singing. “My whole life, I knew I would be a singer,” he says. “It’s deep inside.” As a child, all kinds of music surrounded him. His father was mad for Sinatra, the Bee Gees, and Motown, and his mother was always listening to opera singers, singers with large voices. He discovered and started sharing his musical gifts very early in life; Niclo sang his first concert when he was five years old, and his father taught him music theory when Niclo was six. “I would sing whenever I had the occasion to sing,” he says.
When he was a teenager, he was riding in the car one day with his father. Niclo heard Luciano Pavarotti singing “Nessun Dorma” on the radio, and Vincent broke down into tears. “What is this power that this voice can have and go through your heart and your emotions?” he asked himself. “I would like to have that power!”
Niclo clearly possesses the power he wished for that day. After studying opera in Paris, Vincent starred in several musicals including West Side Story, Titanic, Romeo and Juliet, and Gone with the Wind. His star began to rise, and when pop superstar Céline Dion heard him sing, she invited him to open for her on several high-profile shows, saying of the rising French star:
Because of the combination of his soulful, romantic vocals and his emotional delivery of the songs, many of the world’s greatest singers invited Niclo to collaborate with them, including Placido Domingo, Il Divo, Michael Bublé, Charles Aznavour, Sarah Brightman, and Michel Legrand.
Niclo dreams big, and he follows his imagination and takes chances to achieve his dreams. “You need to push yourself and take risks,” Niclo believes. “At the beginning,” he says, “I never could have imagined myself working with such big stars. Once I did, I told myself that everything is possible.” Now, the singer wants to travel the world, sharing his passion for music with the largest audiences possible. Passionate about singing and traveling, Niclo puts everything he has into his songs as he performs them around the world, touching hearts every night with his exalted versions of pop songs or opera tunes.
“When I start to sing a song,” Niclo remarks, “it’s not to try to reach a note; it’s to try not to cry. When people hear my singing, they feel my emotions.” Whether he’s singing “All by Myself” in front of Céline Dion, or the operatic “Sogni,” with Sarah Brightman, or “Cry Me a River,” with Michael Bublé, Niclo puts himself into every song, turning it inside out so it appeals to our emotions. “I do everything with my passion,” Niclo exclaims. “You have to be the emotion.”
When audiences meet Vincent Niclo for the first time, or the tenth time, they will be charmed by his beautiful smile, be dazzled by his god-like handsomeness, and be transported by his exalted and intimately passionate vocals. As he says, “I give everything to my audience. I have so much in me, and I want to share it with them.” Like Sinatra or Pavarotti, Vincent Niclo creates memorable moments with his singing, leaving us always wanting to hear more of his golden voice that’s touched our hearts.
