Brazilian Soap operas are translated and exported and viewed everywhere throughout the world.
To an accomplished composer, instrumentalist and interpreter, having good songs was never enough... Lucky Jorge Vercillo has the looks, smarts and charm that pop stars need to get across to millions of fans in Brazil and the rest of The Americas and Europe as well.
What could be his secret? - Are the natives of Rio de Janeiro, known as Cariocas more romantic? Is the Brazilian city of The Girl from Ipanema fame, the place to be for love and romance? Asked about the reason for his success outside one of his concerts and 100 of his fans answered with the word Love . Vercillo is very comfortable and not afraid to write and sing about Love and Loving in all its forms.
His songs are an inspiration to a vast legion of fans that never have enough of the mentioned four letter word.
His latest CD Amor é Arte Love is Art is being released on the internet ahead of the pressing of the CD as an experiment and for the first time is proving to be a very valuable one. On his concert schedule for 2016 he will have a stop in New York City this spring and hopes to share his music with his fans in the U.S. and be well received as well as he is in brazil.
