Hello everyone! My name is Mateo Gonzales and I am a 16 year old singer from Los Angeles, California. For as long as I can remember, music has been my true passion and has helped me grow through so many endeavors. 

When I was six years old, I started doing musical theater at a local youth theater group. I fell in love with performing, and have been singing ever since. I began doing theater and voice professionally, broadening my horizons and teaching me so much. 

My drive to pursue music really kicked in when I was introduced to a cappella music my freshman year of high school. I had been admiring my school's co-ed 16-person a cappella group called Unstrumental in the years before I entered high school. I made it my goal to get in the group, and I was honored to have gotten in my first year. My experience with Unstrumental had been nothing short from incredible, and I was eager to be doing more a cappella. I later auditioned and was accepted into a group in the Los Angeles area called Legacy, directed by Rob Dietz. I have learned so much from being in these two groups, and I want to learn so much more. 


I recently auditioned for a musical summer intensive called A Cappella Academy, and I am honored and incredibly excited to have been accepted! However, the costs of this camp add up to $1995, which I feel is too much for me to ask of my parents. 

Therefore, I am turning to you all. Whatever you can give so that I can experience this wonderful opportunity, I would greatly appreciate. If you are unable to donate, feel free to spread the word about this to any family and friends. 

Thank you all so much for your support, it means everything to me !!!

Here is my audition video if you would like to take a look :)
