Scott Engelbrecht


Young Opera Singer

It is with great excitement that we can introduce Scott Engelbrecht, born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa. He is a 9 year old Opera singer who is about to take the world by storm.

Scott was born on the 31st December 2008 and is the second oldest of four boys.  He attends Laerskool Orion in Alberton and is a very happy, outgoing young boy who loves singing, riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline and playing with his brothers.

Scott has always been a noisy child and even as a toddler was always playing piano, making up his own songs and singing at the top of his voice. When Scott was six years old, he watched the Paul Potts movie and this changed his life. He started singing Nessun Dorma imitating Paul Potts, in an operatic voice. This was the beginning of Scott’s passion for opera.

Shortly after, he started singing lessons with a professional Russian opera singer. Yulia has coached Scott for the past two and a half years and has introduced him to a wide repertoire of classical operatic songs in Italian, Latin and Russian.  Some of the songs he sings are: O Mio Babino Caro, Funiculi, Ave Maria and Para Mida More Marui. He also sings in English and Afrikaans, one of his favourite artists is Ge Korsten.

Scott loves performing and singing for people and has already sung at some special events; including The Equus Awards, Lions Rugby events and the showcase of SACOPA.  Some of Scott’s influences are- Cathrine Jenkins, Pavarotti and Kevin Leo.
