Nick Pitera (born 1986) is an American vocal artist with an extensive vocal range who has become well-known principally through the release of YouTube videos, several of which have gone viral.[1]

As of May 2011, Pitera also works as an animator at Pixar Studios.[1]

Pitera is capable of hitting all the high notes in covers of songs by the likes of Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey and, in his most popular clip, both Aladdin and Jasmine on 'A Whole New World,' from the movie 'Aladdin.'[1]

Viral video release

In 2011, Pitera released "One Man Disney Movie" using a "'Brady Bunch'-style grid" to perform "an eight-minute-plus mashup of songs from various big-screen musical fairy tales, from "Beauty and the Beast" to "Enchanted," taking on the roles of the heroes, heroines, villains, sidekicks and their furry choirs."[1]

In 2012, Pitera released a medley cover of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs entitled "One Man Phantom of the Opera."[2] This was followed in August of the same year by "One Man Les Miserables".
