HE HAS danced with a First Lady at one of his performances for the Republican National Convention. He has also battled the pressures of fame and rose back to pop prominence headlining various concerts and sold-out performances. Now, he is visiting our shores for a one-night only concert.

Born in New York City, Orlando first made his breakthrough at the age of 16 with the hit “Halfway To Paradise” written by Grammy-award winning singer songwriter Carole King.
