Giorgio was not always Giorgio. He was born George Longdo originally in Brockville, Ontario in the year 1957 to the proud parents of Frank and Rowena Longdo. Giorgio was the first born and his first words were ''my penn my mark". His mother realized he was going to be an artist of some kind during his life time. At the age of 26 he won the Mario Lanza scholarship in Philadelphia Pennsylvania for his outstanding performance of Adams Holy City which resulted in his name being changed from George to Giorgio encouraged by the Mario Lanza Institute personal and President hearing his voice during his audition. That scholarship resulted in more financial help to continue studying voice and music in Toronto, Ontario with far more commitment and dedication his calling as a singer. He first sang as a boy in Public School, Church, music festivals, special events in Chatham and Bathurst, New Brunswick. He even was asked to sing by the Mayor of Bathurst at the Great Danny Speed Bowl Race track for 10,000 air stream traveling Americans when they called him little Mario. His family not knowing who this Mario was till years latter when an Italian man named Johney Marciano, heard him sing for his family during a blustering winter storm said, " one day they will call you Canada's Mario Lanza."
