For the last 25 years Jonathan Veira has been a star of the world of opera, handling a wide range of character parts as a comic baritone. A virtuoso musician and delightful raconteur, with skills on keyboard and guitar, he also tours with an extremely popular one man show. He is a regular guest at Spring Harvest, where his shows are always crammed to capacity. Jonathan Veira appears regularly at Glyndebourne and other top operatic venues, and has made many successful recordings with Elevation and other labels: he has been conducted by Bernard Haitink. He has a wonderful repertoire of stories, and is a keen observer of the foibles of the operatic world. He is also a deeply committed Christian.

This light-hearted, easy read is the autobiography of international opera star Jonathan Veira. Jonathan is firstly a Christian and he makes no secret of the fact. In a very natural way he writes about his family background, his early influences and how he met his wife. The book is also full of funny anecdotes from his career of some 25+ years. His big-heartedness and honesty come across as he relates some of his struggles and testifies to God’s goodness to him, especially in times of trial. This is a book I would gladly lend to non-Christian friends even if they are not opera buffs, knowing that they will not be intimidated by it. Glory is given to God as Jonathan is just himself. Buy the book, read it, pass it on, then get down to one of his concerts and meet him in person. I guarantee you will feel uplifted and richer for the experience!
