This is a presentation from Terri Fator, the world famous ventriloquist. Terri is the only non singer to ever win 1st place in the talent contest, "Americas Got Talent". His stardom and popularity has since hit the stratosphere. Currently he is working on a 5 year contract with the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas, where he involves a large cast of characters that sing and mimic famous people. Terri is quickly becoming one of the busiest entertainers in the industry with requests for his services all over world. Later this month, on Feb 28th, he has been invited to sing the national anthem for the Shelby American NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. My only question is which of his friends will be accompanying him to the event. When asked what he thinks about the invitation, Terri said;
It is an honor for me to sing the national anthem at the Shelby American race in Las Vegas. I believe that my fans and NASCAR fans are one and the same, so it is a match made in Heaven. I grew up in Texas, so you know Im a NASCAR fan!
The thing that makes Terri standout from your normal ventriloquists is his ability to make you forget you are even watching a ventriloquist. It could easily be argued that Terri has lifted the stigma of vantriliquists being nothing more then a warm up side show for bigger entertainers. After watching his performance I came away with a new found respect for the talent it takes to do what he does. He makes sure that the audience is so caught up with the way his puppets actually sound like some of the greatest singers of all time, that I challenge anyone to see if you can ever catch his lips moving while he performs. The way I see it, the day God spoke to Balaam through a donkey was the only time there was a greater performance of ventriloquism then the one Terri Fator puts on. Numbers 22:20-41 In this video clip that I taped from the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy, Terri Fator is performing with his friend, Julius. Now Julius just happens to be the greatest soul singer who has ever been invited to entertain the gamblers of Vegas. His smooth ballads, clever wit and flawless renditions are some of the best in the industry. From classic oldies to the modern day hip hop craze, Julius has got it all.
His name is spelled Terry.
Terri is a girl’s name.
Thanks for posting. I’d never heard of him, quite an impressive performance.
A ventriloquist was once doing an act, and made many cutting jokes about rednecks. At the end of the show a redneck jumped on stage, yelling about how rednecks weren’t as dumb as he said. The ventriloquist started to explain that it was only a show, when the redneck looked at him and said, “You shut up, I’m talking to the little fella.”
Hadn’t seen him perform until I ‘went to his Vegas show. He was fantastic, especially with that character, the little fifth Beatle dummy.
It's fake..Look at the "Dummy", it Gary Colman ;>
I meant George Soros and Barack Obama.
I used to love Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop. I grew up with her as a child.
By the way, the reason I chose that advertisement is it shows her talent so well.
