Career And Professional Highlights

Best Known For…

In 2007, while he was still in his teens, Andrew De Leon appeared for an American Idol audition in San Diego. Although he could make it to the Hollywood rounds, he was ousted in the Top 24. In 2012, the opera singer signed up for the talent show 'America's Got Talent' after he came across a television commercial about its auditions.

During his audition in the seventh season of the talent show, De Leon crooned the song 'O Mio Babbino Caro', resulting in the judges Sharon Osbourne, Howard Stern, and Howie Mandel collectively giving it a nod, resulting in De Leon making the Vegas Round.

During the Vegas Round, out of his popularity among the judges, the musician from America was assigned to the 'Opera Singers' category. His later performance, when he sang an opera song, proved a little unsatisfactory since Andrew De Leon could not remember the lyrics midway and stopped singing despite the background music playing. As a result, the songster could not reach the Quarterfinals of 'America's Got Talent.'

Despite the Vegas Round botch-up, the opera singer from Texas was roped in for the Wild Card Show of 'America's Got Talent' by one of the judges, Howard Mandel. After his wild card entry, De Leon performed the Spanish version of 'Unbreak My Heart,' resulting in the songster reaching the semifinals. Andrew sang 'Ave Maria' in the semifinals but could not make the finals due to insufficient votes.

However, the experience boosted his career prospects, with Andrew De Leon landing a deal with StandBy Records and launching his first project, 'Dark Tales,' in 2015. Since then, the August-born musician's career trajectory has only seen an upward growth, with many hits to his credit. His projects include the album 'A Stranger In Paradise.'

Also, Andrew De Leon left the audience mesmerized when he sang 'O Mio Babbino Caro' during his television debut, with the likes of Sharon Osbourne dubbing him a star. The songster is known for other albums such as 'Black Lights,' 'I Need You Here,' and 'Christmas Lights EP.' Also, the singer is known for crooning popular songs like 'Bleeding Heart,' 'Vampiro,' and 'O Holy Night.' Also, the August-born singer has been a writer for the music talk show 'SoundMojo' from 2019-20.
