Sergio Sylvestre (26) beat Elodie in the most recent Amici final and just like her, also him enters Sanremo among the Big. Big he is: 2,08m! No guessing where his nickname Big Boy comes from then!
Sergio was born in Los Angeles from a Mexican father and Haitian mother. In 2012 he visited Italy as a tourist and ... well, now he's an Amici winner, in Sanremo and who knows heading off to Kyiv as well! Life's so strange at times :-). He has mostly sung in English but now for Sanremo he tries out his Italian with Sai che (You know), co-written by Giorgia, one of this year's super guests. He has released one EP and a three singles so far, but his self titled debut album will be released right after the festival.
