Jotta A, Joseph Antonio Viana, (his family calls him Tony). Yes the little Brazilian boy who took the Gospel by storm when he sang his heart out at Brazil Talented Kids Show and transformed famous songs into new age Gospel sensation, is still in the scenes and is working on a new album which will be out this year. If you love Jotta A, you will love his CD Essencia.
Most know or remember Jotta A as a little boy singing perfectly, “Halleluiah” version of WH Smith, “Still” by Hill Song and other big songs sung by big artists like Aline Barros “Sonda me”, hitting the high notes in perfect vocal chords with a difference, like never heard before, giving gospel music a new meaning . Now Jotta A, still driven by his Ministry and an idol for millions of both Christians and non Christians fans and supporters is all grown up, a 15 year old, with a new look, and is coming up with a new album, to be released this year.
Jotta A is a role model for both Christian and non Christian Youth of today. Apart from his commitment to his Ministry, Jotta is still a young teenager just like any other teenager but with a passion for Christ and is supported by his Christian family and Christian supporters all over the world. One of his role models is He is usually fully booked throughout the year, performing in churches and events around Brazil, reaching out through his Ministry.
Jotta A is compared to the likes of Michael Jackson and on meeting him, speaking to him and hearing him live myself, I thought this young, God Loving little man is non comparable to Michael Jackson at all. He is highly gifted, confident and talented in his own special way. I was a big fan of Michael Jackson myself back in the 80’s and I can admit that Jotta A is way ahead of Michael Jackson. They are both talented, but in their very special different ways in which I would say Jotta is on the lead.
I heard Jotta sing myself, live, with his original, non tuned or enhanced voice and the young man sings like an angel, with a naturally enhanced voice. Not only does he worship when he humbly sings, but the anointing that is on him just splashes everywhere in the room, overflows and connects with the audience, making everyone feel an extraordinary feeling of love for the Lord and making way to worship the Lord in the Spirit. Jotta bubbles with love and I believe that this is what makes him unique, compared to other Gospel singers. One has to witness it to believe it, so I did. Jotta connects spiritually with God before he connects with the audience, making the audience feel what he is feeling and sharing it too. This “love for God feeling” is just heavily contagious.
When Jotta is on the stage singing, he is out of this world and in a worshipping state but still connected to the audience and conveying the Word of God through singing. It’s not everyday that you hear songs that tear you apart and really make you see or know who you really are and where you are heading spiritually. Jotta’s singing does exactly that because he is not only singing, but ministering to the listener, in a very special way.
Now with a mature voice, Jotta is even more perfected and still has love and affection in his ministry. Of course, after puberty (which happens to all males), His vocals have changed but even more perfected. Some have criticised his vocals after puberty, but voice breaking is common and by nature. Jotta’s Ministry is a singing. He was born to sing and is still doing just that perfectly and conveying the messages of his ministry. He recorded his first CD when he was six years old and is still heading on and improving each and every moment.
If you are a fan or want to experience this phenomenon sensation, listen to all his music and look out for the coming album in November 2013.
