Mark Vincent's first three albums achieved huge success. The first, My Dream (Mio Visione) captured the hearts of many and went platinum. Then he delivered again with Compass and The Great Tenor Songbook which both went gold, a remarkable achievement for this young Australian performer. With his latest album, Songs From The Heart, Mark gives enduring classics like Amazing Grace, Bridge Over Troubled Water and My Heart Will Go On and tracks from iconic musicals as The Sound of Music, Love Never Dies, The Boy From Oz and Camelot his unique treatment. He is set to replicate his earlier success.
His late Grandfather and inspiration Bruno Riccio OAM realised Mark's talent as he sang along to Andrea Boccelli albums at the family's Italian restaurant at age nine. The boy soprano was soon taking singing lessons and before long Bruno was ferrying him to performances at markets, hospitals and charity balls, Mark's repertoire expanding to include swing and musical theatre numbers.
Mark's singing idols are Anthony Warlow and opera singers Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavarotti.
In 2011, Sydney Markets Foundation announced Mark's appointment as the charity's first ambassador. The appointment recognised the valuable contribution Mark has made to the Markets, particularly his support for their charity endeavours, and his generous support for other charity activities in his local area and nationally.
