Accompanied by renowned musicians, Pacheco performs beautiful original compositions along with newly created renditions of beloved classics.
Pacheco, who is known to PBS audiences through his appearance in the "Yanni Voices" special, was discovered by producer Ric Wake (Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston) and was a featured performer with pianist/composer Yanni on a tour of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
He has been featured on several national television broadcasts, including two PBS specials and the ABC/Disney Parks Christmas Parade.
He has performed for His Royal Highness Prince Charles at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., sung “O Holy Night” on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, in Philadelphia’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the ABC/Disney Parks Christmas Parade with Katherine Jenkins; he joined Jenkins for a U.K. tour with the London Symphony Orchestra as a fully integrated special guest artist — all in the past year.
In addition, Pacheco performed for the 100th anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., on the south lawn of the White House and at the Washington Monument.
Though known best for his singing, Pacheco is also an avid composer. He has completed his debut album, writing and collaborating with multi-platinum composer/producer Leo-Z (Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban). The album was largely completed in London at the legendary Air Lyndhurst Studios with London’s Philharmonic Orchestra and will be released in September of 2012 on Disney Pearl.
