Tuesday night Australian/Venezuelan crooner Daniel Alejandro impressed and brought a touch of glitz to the Bondi Pavilion last night with his Songs of Rhythm & Romance, which gave the audience a touch of Latin America, both in songs from his debut album El Amor and many of his covers. These covers came from an eclectic group of artists ranging from Santana to Cole Porter to Josh Groban, the show was very much ‘Vegas Lite’ in style – with a couple of bedazzled back-up dancers who added a fun and sexy element to the show.

Alejandro’s honey smooth vocals had the audience melting and the show was paced nicely with traditional Spanish pieces interspersed with some funkier numbers. Alejandro introduced friend and soprano Alya Meyer who sang a number and joined him for a duet.

Alejandro’s publicity stills reveal him as sexy and brooding, in person he is gorgeous but also comfortingly daggy and he came across as a much younger, Latin Engelbert Humperdinck. He lacked the slick styling of an Anthony Callea, and his dance style can best be described as the Sixth Grade Shuffle, but the music, hand-picked and arranged by musical director Daryl Wallis, gave Alejandro’s voice a place to shine.

The final crowd-pleasing number was Alejandro’s rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’, which he belted out with ease and showed not only his enviable range, but also his classic opera training.  You can follow Alejandro on Facebook to keep up with his performances: https://www.facebook.com/danielalejandromusic/
