It’s an angelic voice which reflects both his passion for God and for music. Regardless of what your religion may be – once you hear Ariel singing you will know just how the angels praise the Lord.
Ariel Sebastian is twelve-years-old and is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Raised in a religious Christian family, he has always felt close to Jesus. His parents recognized his talent and signed him up for piano lessons at the tender age of eight. He continued to develop both his vocal and instrumental skills and, at age eleven, was discovered by the legendary Argentinian producer Pablo Ramírez with whom he released his first album Roca Eterna, making him the Youngest Psalmist of Christian Music. His album contains thirteen songs containing a unique mixture of melodic pop vibes and touching ballads.

When I first discovered Ariel’s music just few days ago, I could not believe that I had not previously heard of this gifted singer and his captivating voice. I have often wondered what the meaning of Christian Music is – Christian Pop, Rock…etc. and I think that, thanks to Ariel, I finally have an answer to this question. It is a music with a message – a message of love and hope, of peace and freedom. Currently, one can hardy find any information in English about Ariel. Yet, those of you who know Spanish will be able to discover many articles in various blogs and online publications.
