Andrea Celeste

Andrea Celeste was born in Pontedera on the 31st of August 1986. When only 11 years old she started giving her first public performances and took up the study of classical singing and piano under the guidance of M. Vittorio Scali.

Her talent did not pass unnoticed and she was invited, while still an adolescent, to share the stage with some of the most important national and international Gospel projects and singers such as the St. Jacob’s Gospel Choir directed by M. Massimo Bracci, the Joyful Angels directed by M. Vijay Pierallini, and the American singer Cheryl Porter. In 2002 Andrea won a scholarship for the International Gospel Seminar in Castelbrando where she shared the stage with Mario Biondi and Cheryl Porter.
