Overview: 10 years ago, Ray Raymond, a singer/songwriter couldn't find a place for his big-voice and hit a brick wall. He was told there was no place for his rich voice in the commercial market. Ray's singing career stalled and little changed for almost a decade.
Today, the singer/songwriter from South Beach is selling out performances and about to release his debut Album, "Gratitude," featuring, "I Always Felt Your Love," a powerful ballad he wrote for his parents. What happened to cause his reversal of fortune? "Popera", happened! During that uneventful decade in Ray's career, music evolved to include a new genre, his genre, "Popera." The Popera genre, combining the vocal styles of Pop, Opera and Broadway is sweeping a nation starved for a reprieve from Hip-Hop and Pop Princesses with questionable vocal ability.
