Mark Janicello's life has been eventful enough to be turned into its own television mini-series or musical. As the second of three brothers, he learned how to take his licks... but also learned how to dish them out. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1962, he now lives in Berlin, Germany. He made his first solo appearance as a boy soprano at four years old and has been onstage or in front of a camera ever since. Whether acting, painting or singing, Mark Janicello excels in every discipline in the Worlds of Art and Entertainment. His talents shine as brightly as the many facets of his incomparable personality.
In his amazing and eventful career, he first conquered both the New York Subways and the New York audiences as a street singer winning "America’s Best Street Performer 1992". His $15.000, prize-winning appearance in New York's Grand Central Station featured multiple musical and vocal styles and was based on the idea: "What if Elvis never died but just turned into Pavarotti?" He then made the move from street performer to established theaters and concert halls performing in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and the Zürich Opera House, among many, many others. Mark's star turn in the 1997 production of "Elvis:A Musical Biography" made his name in Europe.

Mark Janicello, a paragon of optimism, is a sensitive, positive man who always found his greatest strength in the moments of his greatest challenges:
"Regardless of how high the price I had to pay for my decisions, I do not regret a single one of them. Even though I've spent more than 40 years of my life in the performing arts and have realized most of my childhood dreams, I still have the feeling that I am just at the beginning".
