Gilly Assuncao grew up in Brazil and has always had a love of music and singing with limited formal training. While in Brazil, he performed in musicals such as “Phantom of The Opera”, “Cats”, and “The Lion King” as well as in restaurants and bars with many local bands. He came to the United States from Brazil two and a half years ago, and is currently here on a student visa. In December 2017, he sang at an impromptu appearance at Russo’s market in Watertown, MA. The video went viral.
As a result, the Berklee College of Music offered him an audition and in March of 2018, he was admitted to Berklee College of Music and he could not be more excited!
