Even when still at school, Roberto drew attention to himself with his uncommonly warm and powerful voice, which at only 18 led to his first major performance in front of more than 1,000 spectators at the Rosenheim Convention Center, Germany. He thrilled the audience with “The Ad-dressing of Cats” from the musical Cats as the character Old Deuteronomy without needing any amplification.
From 1992, the karaoke wave swept through Germany. In that and the following year, Roberto entered numerous competitions, winning them all, thanks to his vocal style, which many agreed was reminiscent of Elvis. Meanwhile he ended up winning the German national karaoke championship in 1993.
In the following years, Roberto had to choose between his two passions: flying or singing. After deciding to become a professional pilot, he continued to be on stage every now and then at various festive occasions, birthdays, weddings or company events.
In 2016, the captain launched a new stage in his singing pursuits by composing and producing his own songs. On Sunday, September 2, 2018, he had his biggest TV appearance yet on the German TV broadcaster ARD’s variety show “Immer wieder sonntags” in front of millions of TV viewers. He is currently working on his first album, which is nearing completion.
