London based Brazilian Vocalist Flavio Cortes re-releases his Gospel-tinged album 'Higher' with publicity handled by new PR platform 8digital. 'Higher' was released in August 2011 and was a testament to Flavio's ability to choose music that not only matched his honeyed vocals but that also resonated with his soul. The seven track album pays tribute to Flavio's passion for singer/songwriters such as Mariah Carey, Heather Headley and Josh Groban. He adds a spin to classic tracks such as 'Music Box' and 'Looking in' (both co-written and performed by Mariah). Like many other artists before him he honed his vocal talents singing in a Gospel Choir as a child. His love of Gospel music never waned and any track choice he made for this first CD release was always destined to carry the hallmark of his church roots. 'Higher' is available at all major digital retailers worldwide.
