Justin Gigliello from North Stonington, CT recently belted out a chilling, beautiful version of “Ave Maria” right in the middle of the Grand Floridian Resort in Florida. He was apparently visiting Disney World with his daughter when she asked the pianist if her dad could sing a song.

When the pianist asked what song, she replied with “Ave Maria.” Turns out, Justin has got quite the pipes on him! Many couldn’t help but pull out their phones to record this moment and it has been making rounds on the Internet since.

Justin had begun voice lessons at the age of 15 and soon went on to study at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Talk about talented! Justin spoke to Fox News about his musical inspirations, which explains a whole lot of how awesome he sounds!

“I’m a huge fan of Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, and Michael Bublé,” he explained, “Some of their pieces are what I sing daily in the house with my daughter.”
