17 year old Lucas Ciliberti is a Singer/Songwriter who “sings from his heart, to make people happy!” His first professional appearance in front of a large audience was when he was just 18 months old, where he sang “God Bless America”, and he has been singing his way into hearts across America ever since!
Lucas grew up on a 4th generation family farm, west of Enid, Oklahoma – living with his mother, grandmother, and his 2 older brothers. In addition to singing to all the farm animals and his neighbors, Lucas performed in many parades and for events like the Harlem Globetrotters, NBA Thunder Basketball, MN Twins Baseball Games, Monster Truck Rallies, Rattlesnake Hunts, Miss OK Pageant, National Day of Prayer, and many more – but his heart was always devoted to helping those in need. Lucas has also shared his music and his joy in churches, hospitals, nursing homes, senior citizen centers, and music camps for underprivileged children.
Lucas has also performed at the Special Olympics and special needs facilities many times. These performances hit especially close to home for him as one of his two older brothers had a severe brain injury and is a non-verbal autistic.
As a member of the Oklahoma Country Music Singers Association, Lucas was only 10 years old when he was chosen to represent his state in the North American Country Music Association’s International Competition, held in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Unfortunately, at the time, he did not have enough money to pay for the trip, so his grandmother sold a cow to pay for the trip expenses! Lucas made his grandmother proud by receiving a standing ovation and winning Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year.
Soon after Lucas began sharing his talent all over the Nashville area. Lucas currently sings up and down Broadway and Music Row, and in locations like the Hard Rock Café, BB Kings, the Bridgestone Arena, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and many more!
Lucas’ heart is one of giving, even with his schedule full with school, a part time job, his music, performance, and his hobbies. Despite being so busy, he makes plenty of time to help others by volunteering and singing at many charity events, Veterans homes, the boys & girls club, and the Nashville City Pet Rescue. Lucas has also made a profound difference at school assemblies by sharing his message of how important it is to stay in school, stop and prevent bullying, and following ones dreams.
Another cause that is very close to Lucas’ heart is “Give a Little Nashville”. Lucas raises money through special performances to help provide children in need with Christmas presents, and to help supply the homeless with warm winter hats, scarves, and gloves. Lucas is always the first to arrive and the last one to leave when it comes time wrap all the presents and deliver them.
