Toto Cutugno, Italian pop superstar | Print |  E-mail
Salvatore "Toto" Cutugno is a famous Italian pop musician, superstar, and songwriter.
Many comparisons have been made to Frank Sinatra, as he has great stage presence, is entertaining, and many women find him attractive.

He was born in Fosdinovo, in the Tuscany region of Italy, and started his career as a drummer.
The 1976 Sanremo Music Festival gave him enormous exposure when he finished in 3rd place with his band Albatros singing the song Volo 504.

Cutugno's most famous song is a song about Italian pride (1983) called "L'Italiano (Lasciatemi Cantare)", a song similar to the "Born in the USA" song by Bruce Springsteen.

He has won many accolades and he even has a song with the legendary Ray Charles.

Below is a video to his famous song:

Lasciatemi cantare
Perche' ne sono fiero
Sono un italiano
Un italiano vero
