Los Angeles (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
With a voice and command of the stage expected from a performer twice his age - 14-year-old Charlie Baggett is already making a name for himself in the world of classical singing. And with his debut CD I Only Dream of You already earning accolades from fans and critics alike, this rising star is destined for greatness.
"You could easily believe that you were listening to Il Divo, Andrea Bocelli or even a younger Pavarotti," says reporter André Gensburger of The Concordian. "Such is the power of his performance. Baggett is poised to become a household name in the near future."
I Only Dream of You is a collection of songs ranging from the well-known "Time to Say Goodbye," on which Baggett has been compared to Josh Groban in style and vocal range, to the familiar and religiously popular "Ave Maria." The cover song, "I Only Dream of You," is one of the three original compositions scored for Baggett by producer Annabelle Marie, a talented musician and writer in her own right - who penned this song to truly reflect who Baggett is. Critics have described "I Only Dream of You", as richly emotional music, reminiscent of a theatrical love song.
This incredible talent has been performing since the age of 6 as an a cappella soloist and for the last few years has been wowing Bay Area audiences as a soloist for VOENA Children's Choir, which has performed worldwide and for Presidents Bush and Clinton at the Pageant of Peace. Baggett regularly brings the audience to their feet with his show closing performances of "O Holy Night". More recently Baggett was a guest vocal artist with the acclaimed California Symphony for a crowd of more than 4-thousand.
Even with his commitment to his art, Baggett finds time for his other loves, animals and flying. His big heart and compassion has led him to contribute his talents to the Animal Rescue Foundation's first ever "Prodigies for Pets" concert, where he shared the stage with such performers as Jonathan Cain of Journey, Carlos Reyes and Karl Perazzo from the band Santana. Perazzo describes Baggett as "a conduit to the divine."
And if that weren't enough Baggett loves to take to the skies. He is a pilot in training and mans a Cessna 172 every chance he gets. His other ambitious goals include flying solo by his 16th birthday and getting his pilot's license by his 17th. Baggett says his love of flying is in his genes, "Everyone up to my great grandfather was involved in aviation in some way or another, so that is where I think I get my "Aviation Urge"."
Baggett is also a member of the Grammy Recording Academy. You can purchase Charlie Baggett's debut CD I Only Dream of You at http://www.CharlieBaggett.com . Charlie's CD is available on http://www.amazon.com.
