About Anthony Gargiula

17-year-old singer and songwriter Anthony Gargiula first got a taste of fame when he appeared at age 7 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Since then, he has made a name for himself by generating over 70M loops on Vine—a following that he has taken to YouNow, where he performs a mix of originals and covers, like Vance Joy’s “Riptide,” to an adoring audience of 23K+. Always playing his signature ukulele as he live streams, Anthony’s sweet voice and original songs (like 2015’s iTunes hit “So I Don’t Drown”) have him poised to take his fame from the web and convert it into even bigger success in the future.
