Luigi D’Avola

Mecca Music, headed by Champ Lui Pio; is proud to announce the launch of its new artist Luigi D’Avola (pronounced as Da-vola).

I’ve already heard a lot about Luigi through Champ’s stories & tweets as well as from a friend Mario Colmenares prior to actually meeting him the first time at the Anniversary of Champ’s Charity; The Tree House Daycare where he sang for the kids.

Much to my surprise He sounded like David Archuleta. He got my attention as well my friends who were with me at the event. We even stood up & cheered for him while giving him a round of applause. Right there,  I already knew something big is coming his way not only because he is guided by the incredibly awesome Champ Lui Pio who has all the experiences & learnings to share to him but also because of the talent & the voice he has to offer.  

I think I met Luigi 4 or 5 times already and I was able to observe him not just as a newbie artist but also as a person. He is really nice, accommodating and sweet and all these add more points to his good looks.

Luigi was first introduced through SMART Telecomm’s LIVE MORE campaign with a music video for the song “It’s Your Life” joining Somedaydream and Champ. 'It's your Life' was written by Pete Davis & James Banburry. A song of encouragement which was delivered well vocally; with an electro-pop rhythm.

Currently, Luigi’s first single ‘Take A Chance’ is already on MYX Top 15 just 2 weeks after its released with over 20,000 views on Youtube. ‘Take A Chance’ is a saccharine bubble-gum pop track that speaks about moving way beyond limits. His full album is set to come out next month.

Eighteen-year-old Luigi is half-Filipino & half-Italian was born and raised in Cebu. 

Now, He is doing live performances across Metro Manila with a growing fan base on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.  Here are some sites and link for you guys as well as ‘Take A Chance’ Music Video.

P.S. I took the photo of Champ & Luigi above last year at the Muntinlupa Fire Station.
