Gigi D'Alessio

Acclaimed Italian singer-songwriter Gigi D'Alessio brings his popular singles to the Niagara Fallsview Casino in March, 2015. Guests will be thrilled to see the popular singer perform his best known songs, including 'Ragazza di periferia,' 'Un nuovo bacio,' 'Averti qui,' 'Un cuore malato,' 'Il mondo e mio' and 'Quando due si lasciano.'

Humble Beginnings

Popular Italian singer-songwriter Luigi 'Gigi' D'Alessio rose from relative obscurity in the early 1990s, soon becoming one of the most popular Italian singer-songwriters in the world. Throughout his entire year, he's sold well over 20 million records to date.

Throughout Naples, D'Alessio started building his career in the early 1990s before seeing lots of local success. A 2008 Vanity Fair Italia interview revealed that D'Alessio spent much of his time perfecting his craft, and in turn, his career throughout 1992 to 1997. He cultivated an underground following around his birthplace, Napoli. Around that time, local Camorra families would invite him to sing at their festive gatherings, including parties.

By the time he broke out after his June 1997 concert at Napoli's San Paolo Stadium, Gigi D'Alessio stopped the party gigs and started the next phase of his career. He performed back to back at the Sanremo Festival, during the years 2000 and 2001.

Gaining International Success

Gigi D'Alessio's international success came in later years. He notably saw success with his single 'Un cuore malato,' a duet with Belgian-Sicilian singer Lara Fabian.

Songwriter Extraordinaire

D'Alessio also frequently does songwriting, notably producing and writing songs for his wife, Anna Tatangelo. Some of the hits he helped include 'Ragazza di periferia' and 'Quando due si lasciano.' His latest work with Tatangelo includes the duets 'Il mondo e mio' and 'Un nuovo bacio.' They've also toured around the United States and Canada over the past few years, resulting in successful shows. He also wrote and composed Tatangelo's 'Il mio amico,' a song she performed at Sanremo Music Festival back in 2008.

Gigi D'Alessio performed at New York's Radio City Music Hall back in 2011, a show that received accolades back in Italy. Gigi D'Alessio, to this day, continues to perform his popular songs while also handling various songwriting duties.
