Opera singer JAMES VALENTI has been tipped for big success after he was honoured with the Richard Tucker Award for up-and-coming stars.
The tenor, 32, has established himself as a rising star since making his debut at the prestigious Metropolitan Opera in New York last month (Mar10) in a performance of Verdi's La Traviata.
As part of the annual prize, Valenti has also been awarded a cheque for $30,000 (£18,750).
The Richard Tucker Award recognises American singers predicted to be on the verge of a major career in opera. Previous honorees include David Daniels, Renee Fleming and Stephanie Blythe.
