Philippe was born in New York City and began his life expressing himself passionately. As a baby he was cast in the film The Godfather as Sonny's son. Later he built a sound studio in the basement of his childhood home and where he spent endless hours practicing and honing his skill, working on breath control and phraseology. This need to express himself through singing remained an unrealized passion until years later, after over 15 years in the financing business around the world, he decided to follow the advice he'd heard his whole life to quit his day job and sing for a living. Since then, Philippe has performed around the world from the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, the Plaza Hotel and Waldorf Astoria in New York City and countless other exciting venues and intimate settings around the world. Throughout his early journey towards singing Philippe even sang in front of Frank Sinatra at the Copa Lounge in Atlantic City with Sinatra's personal pianist accompanying him. He now performs at venues big and small and assembles world class entertainment for venues throughout the USA.
