It’s not everyday that a classically trained baritone fuses opera, gospel, and funk. On Now Sings My Soul, Giuseppe Spoletini, indeed, vacillates between numerous musical worlds with stunning dexterity. He warmly wraps his rich and sumptuous voice around a harp-based arrangement of “Ave Maria” yet brings Mahalia Jackson’s “Trouble of the World” to a feverish pitch with equal aplomb. Produced by Nona Hendryx, Now Sings My Soul is a remarkable showcase for Spoletini, who currently instructs aspiring vocalists at Manhattan School of Music while winning over enthusiastic audiences in the clubs and cabarets of New York. 

“The purpose of the CD is to be very inclusive and it’s to uplift people”, Spoletini says about his debut. “The goal is to just make people feel better or give them some hope”. With rousing tracks like “Who’ll Be a Witness for My Lord” and a stunning original composition by Hendryx entitled “The Impossible”, Spoletini not only uplifts, he inspires, illustrating that when categories are suspended, truly magical music can be made.
