You know the song we’ve been singing all season, right? ‘Someday My Santino Fontana Will Come.’ Because at this point, it’s pretty clear that Broadway’s collective fangirl heart is just counting down the moments until Santino hits the stage as Prince Charming in Cinderella.
Oh, you didn’t know that? You… have never heard Santino sing?
Well. We’re about to fix that. In fact, we’re about to prove that even if you didn’t know it yet, you, too, have been waiting for your Santino Fontana to come. Because you are about to watch this video of Santino singing “Me and My Shadow” with Andrew Kober at Charlie Rosen’s Broadway Big Band gig a few weeks ago. And you are about to develop an all-consuming, life-ruining crush.
It’s okay. We understand. With his dashing, grown-up good looks, and swoon-worthy, vintage baritone, Santino Fontana is blowing our fangirl minds, too. And his sense of humor—check out his AMAZING banter with Kober at about the two minute mark—only sweetens the deal.
Enjoy the video kids, we were so obsessed with the performance that we twisted Charlie’s arm to get it from him before he released most of the other videos from his show. And keep checking back with Charlie’s YouTube Channel. Not just because he’s cute and disgustingly talented, but because eventually he’s going to post his Andrews Sisters style arrangement of “Rolling in the Deep” and you’re going to want to hear that, too.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to daydream about being swept around the dance floor at the Copa like it’s 1955. Santino looks good in our fantasies.
