Posts Tagged ‘Fernando Varela NBC’


Last night during the final round of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” my brother Fernando Varela made me cry.

His emotions after FORTE’s spectacular rendition of “Caruso” were real and loving, and my tears for him were tears of joy and relief. You see, I know that Fernando has busted his tail for over 16 years and now he,  Josh Page, and Sean Pannikar are on the cusp of having their lives change forever.

Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.

That is my brother. Soaking in the moment, but still taking the time to remind us that this is all about dedication and (surprise, surprise) hard work.

Yesterday my brother’s Twitter was extremely active. So was FORTE’s. They got a lot of love from all over the world, but this is the one tweet that said it all for me:

The “boys” left it all on the floor last night. They are already winners. The ride has been a fantastic one. This is the only the beginning.

Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.

This year’s season premieres on June 4 at 9pm EST/8 pm CST. Fernando will appear in one of the audition segments on the show in the next coming weeks. That is pretty exciting.

Who knows what the journey will be on AGT for Fernando, who has a strong fan following, especially through Latinos in Social Media (Fernando was named Best Artist Using Social Media in 2012), but we do know that the journey will be one that many will be watching. 

What is the new journey all about? Here is what Fernando’s manager Paul Mascioli shared today via Facebook:

Finally have news about a project that we have been working on since January. Fernando is part of an exciting new Tenor Trio called Forte and they have auditioned for America’s Got Talent. The only way we will know if they have made it past the 1st audition is to watch the show which begins tomorrow on NBC. Even if Forte doesn’t appear on tomorrow’s broadcast, they could then be on a show which airs sometime over the next few weeks so keep your fingers crossed and watch along with us.
