The world was on fire and no one could save me but you / It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do / I’d never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you / And I’d never dreamed that I’d loose somebody like you….
I listen to tens of covers from Wicked Game, but none of them impressed me as much as the version played by Ionuț. Eyes facind down, holding on his quitar, Ionuț was telling hs story to the world through his unique voice. Emotions that were hold on until then bursted through the weeping guitar.
Isolation and fight for integration
Ionut’s life is completely connected to music. Autism meant for him isolation and continous struggling for integration. His parents saw his connection to music and encouraged him to express himself through songs.
Ionuț learned English by himslef and also he is a self taught guitar player. He can also play drums and piano. Ionut has a special gift for foreign languages and music. He first used only his voice, but later he played with his guitar songs of famous singers. And he took every occasion to sing in public.
THis is how we actually met. He was paying in Expirat to a concert dedicated to families with special needs kids. He was waiting, a bit impatiently, aiming his eyes to the entrance. He stood up and greeted with enourmous joy every known person comming to his concert. He smiled to all of them, therapists, friends or neighbours.
Ionut could successfully perform in any concert
Ionut’s parents were very open when we proposed them to be part of this projects and also when we asked Ionut to play at the opening of David’s photo exhibition hosted by Photofest Bucharest 2019. Ionut played so well and congratulated David for his photos. I was happy to see the audience enjoying his singing.
Ionut was present on the line up of many events involving special needs persons, yet, by my opinion, he could successfully perform in any concert. Lately Ionut got his DJ diploma, being able now to host any music event.
We could all be enjoying his fantastic sensitivity performance by inviting him to our events.
If you are part of a company, corporation, NGO or state entity and you need an artist to your events, do not hesitate to choose Ionut.
