We really don’t know a lot about this incredibly talented youngster who lives in a small village in Brazil. His name is Jose Antonio Viana, but goes by “Jotta A,” although his family calls him Tony.
The joy that radiates from this 13-year-old is contagious.
Enjoy his amazing rendition of “Hallelujah, Worthy Is the Lamb”!
This little we do know: he’s a seventh grader, the youngest of three children of Antonio and Edna Holanda, living in the village of Angélica, just outside Sorocaba, Brazil.
With his family he attends an Assembly of God Church — and recorded his first CD at age six. Ever since he first appeared a few months ago on a Brazillian TV youth talent show “Jovens Talentos Kids” which is a segment of the popular show ”Raul Gil,” he’s been in incredible demand.
“I must say he’s totally destroying the competition and most likely he will win,” says one fan.
He’s usually accompanied by his older sister Lanna and he sings mostly in churches and Christian festivals. He is booked solid at churches mostly around Sao Paulo, Brazil, through the end of the year.
Because of his powerful stage presence, he’s already being compared to the young Michael Jackson.
According to his family, he just recorded a new CD, which was released in September at Brazil’s Expocristã, a Christian festival in São Paulo.
