in the world. He is certainly the busiest. No other teacher, past or present, has ever matched his phenomenal track record. His students are a veritable “Who’s Who” of singers, actors, dancers, and entertainers throughout the world. Seth Riggs’s vocal technique and the methods he uses to teach the technique were forged and tempered by the fierce demands placed on the world’s top performers, who must often perform several shows a night – night after night! A great deal of money is always at stake, so his clients’ voices must be able to function easily, without strain. It is no wonder that whenever singers come to Los Angeles from other parts of the world, producers, directors and fellow performers send them to see this master vocal technician. In the pragmatic world of show business, where time is money, Seth Riggs is the man professionals turn to for results. Margareta Svensson Riggs is the  second most sought after vocal coach by Singers. Margareta Svensson Riggs’ husband, Seth Riggs, has trained her not only as a singer, but also as a teacher to teach his technique, the patented and trademarked Speech Level Singing technique.  Margareta Svensson the artist, singer, actor and pianist, began her  career at the age of five, Margareta made her first public performance at a Red Cross Christmas Fair in her home town of Tångaberg, outside Varberg, Sweden. She then went on to sing for patients at the hospital where her mother was a nurse, and as a thirteen-year-old, Margareta would take her guitar and get on a bus to the big city two hours away from home to engage in street singing. Margareta says; “ I loved it. Later I have realized it was also the best school when it comes to learning how to create and excite an audience.”Margareta’s performances moved rapidly from the streets to indoor venues. Frank SInatra’s drummer saw her perform and offered her to come to Los Angeles to record her original songs.Since then she has appeared throughout Europe and in the U.S.A. Audiences include royalties, world leaders, Nobel Prize Laureates, captains of industry and celebrities such as Robert De Niro, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Dolly Parton, Michael Bolton and many more.Over a two-year period Margareta was sought after to open all the new resort-and casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada. Newspapers wrote “Jackpot in Las Vegas”. A contract was then offered at the famous Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Los Angeles, where Margareta performed both as a singer-pianist as well as a solo pianist. She went back to Las Vegas having been recruited by Steve Wynn himself to be part of the opening of Wynn Las Vegas. Though Five Star Five Diamond establishments have become Margareta’s home environment when it comes to solo piano and singing, she spends more time writing music and performing her stage show. And whether it is headlining, giving a concert, or providing entertainment for special events, Margareta is not a stranger to any of it. With her remarkable way of dealing with an audience she can excite any venue. Margareta is trained as an actor/dancer at Harvard University, Tisch School of the Arts (NYU) and Musical Theatre Works Conservatory, and has been seen in a variety of roles. She was elected as the youngest member ever at that point to join Stallfaglarna, the prestigious order of Swedish women in entertainment. Margareta frequently travels back to Europe and to her home country and has held such prestigious engagements as the Stockholm City Hall for the city’s 750th Anniversary as well as several Nobel Prize Award affairs. Receiver of the Nobel Prize in Medicine, Ferid Murad M.D/P.H.D, says, “Margareta was an artist that fully matched and complimented the elite company surrounding her… with her beautiful voice and classy persona.”

Conversely, Porter has worked his magic with an ever-growing mix of English-language stars including Lara Fabian, Bon Jovi, Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan, 98 Degrees, Brian McKnight, Toni Braxton, and Boyz II Men, crossing their hits over to Spanish-speaking and international audiences.

In 2001, KC’s prodigious talents were honored with the Latin GRAMMY Producer of the Year Award, saluting his overall body of work for the year preceding the win (he had also been a contender in 2000, Latin GRAMMY’s inaugural year).  Six separate tracks were cited in the nomination: “Olympic Festival,” a song with the legendary Carlos Santana from the soundtrack for Sony Picture’s critically acclaimed indie film Girl fight; “Brujeria” and “El Santo” by Latin alt-rock sensation King Chango from their Luaka Bop album The Return of El Santo; “Una Noche,” a Spanish version of the smash from pop hitmakers 98 Degrees; the international hit “Un Error De Los Grandes,” from reigning Italian pop diva Laura Pausini; and “Cambia La Piel,” from superstar Ricky Martin’s Columbia Records release, Sound Loaded.

Over the years KC Porter has penned songs and produced albums & singles that have received GRAMMY awards and nominations, including the title track from Salsa diva La India’s acclaimed ’99 album Sola. That same year, Porter took home a GRAMMY for his extensive work on the legendary Carlos Santana’s RIAA Diamond-status 1999 juggernaut Supernatural, which won a record-breaking nine GRAMMYs including Album of the Year, is certified fourteen times platinum domestically, and has achieved international sales exceeding ten million.

KC produced four songs for this landmark work: “Primavera,” “El Farol” (both of which he co-wrote), “Migra,” and “Corazón Espinado,” featuring Maná, the album’s third single internationally. “El Farol” was also honored with a 2000 GRAMMY’s for Best Pop Instrumental, and KC’s production won “Corazón Espinado” Record of the Year at the first annual Latin GRAMMYs that year. Additionally, Porter has worked on Ozomatli albums including “Don’t Mess with the Dragon” and singles “Can’t Stop” and “La Gallina”, the Grammy winning Street Signs, and for Ceremony and Shaman, Carlos Santana’s multi-platinum follow-ups to Supernatural, “When You Smile”, the first collaborative effort for Carlos Santana and Patti LaBelle from Timeless Journey, and Chilean rock act La Ley’s Grammy winning, Libertad just to name a few.

Porter, who is a practitioner of the Baha’i Faith, is also deeply involved in his role as Creative Director for Oneness (www.oneness.org), the non-profit organization he co-founded in 1999 with a mission of eliminating racism and promoting racial unity through the healing power of music and the arts.

ROBERT DAVI (Summit #2)

Robert Davi is an award-winning actor, screenwriter, director, producer, and what many are finding out, an extraordinary jazz vocalist, as stated by many, including Quincy Jones: “As FS would say, ‘Koo, Koo.’ Wow! I have never heard anyone come this close to Sinatra’s sound – and still be himself. Many try, but Robert Davi has the voice, tone, the flavor and the swagger. What a surprise.”

From his portrayal of James Bond villain Franz Sanchez in “Licence to Kill” to FBI profiler Bailey Malone in “Profiler,” Robert Davi is one of the film industry’s most recognized tough guys, whether on the big screen or on television. Interview Magazine has called him “a latter-day Humphrey Bogart” and GQ Magazine has compared him to silver screen classics Robert Mitchum and Lee Marvin. His tough exterior masks a powerful inner sensitivity, which he calls upon for his most notorious roles providing complexity to characters even where, initially, it was not present. This entertainer always gives passion and heart to all he does. One has to only listen to his debut music album, Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance (Fontana/Universal Music Group), to experience it.

Davi has always loved to sing and entertain. At 15, he received acclaim for his voice, having been awarded First Place in the prestigious New York State School Music Association Solo Competition. As a young adult, he studied under several top vocal teachers including the legendary Tito Gobbi, Dan Ferro of Juilliard, Samuel Margolis (who taught Robert Merrill) and most recently, renowned vocal coach Gary Catona.

In October of 2011, Davi released Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance (produced by Grammy award-winning producer Phil Ramone) to rave reviews. Within weeks of its highly anticipated release, the album soared onto Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 Jazz Chart taking the number 6 spot for several weeks. Davi’s purpose for making the album was not necessarily about his “return” to singing. It was motivated by a much deeper purpose. Davi calls The Great American Songbook, “’The Shakespeare of America,’ the golden age of American music.” In his words, “This collection of unforgettable masterpieces helped the world fall in love with our country. During my parents’ time, while our country faced many difficulties, this music helped it glow with promise and optimism. It reminded them that our country was a place where dreams come true, and inspired people from all over the world to find for themselves the magic that was America. And Frank Sinatra’s Voice was the soundtrack for their lives.” With the many challenges the world is facing today, Davi found it imperative to voice the relevance of The Great American Songbook. The album “is a journey through different aspects of love – from the seduction and elation of falling in love to the loss and heartbreak of it and then back to its rediscovery. It is a metaphor for this great country of ours, that no matter how hard times are, the Best is Yet to Come.”

In his early acting years, Davi attended Hofstra University on a drama scholarship. He then moved to Manhattan, New York where he studied with the legendary acting coach Stella Adler, who became his mentor. Davi became a lifetime member of the Actors Studio, where he studied with acting teacher Lee Strasberg. Always perfecting his craft, Davi studied under Sandra Seacat, Larry Moss, Milton Katselas, Martin Landau, Mala Powers, and George Shdanoff, the creative partner and collaborator with Michael Chekhov (actor/director highly regarded for his acting technique).

Davi was introduced to film when he was cast opposite Frank Sinatra in the telefilm, “Contract on Cherry Street.” Later, his work as a Palestinian terrorist in the award-winning television movie, “Terrorist on Trial: The United States vs. Salim Ajami” brought him critical acclaim and caught the eye of legendary James Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli and writer Richard Maibaum, who cast Davi as Colombian drug lord and lead villain Franz Sanchez in the Bond film “Licence to Kill.” Today, Davi is one of the top Bond villains of all time ranking as high as number 2 on many lists. Davi also received critical acclaim within the industry for his provocative portrayal of Bailey Malone in “Profiler.” The show struck a chord with audiences, paving the way for such shows as “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Without a Trace,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” Criminal Minds (in which Davi has guest starred), and many others. In 2004, Davi joined the cast of television’s “Stargate: Atlantis,” which earned Davi many sci-fi fans. He has also shown his comedic strength in films such as “The 4th Tenor” with Rodney Dangerfield and “The Hot Chick,” produced by Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler.

Having appeared in more than 100 motion pictures, some of Davi’s most notable film credits span 30 years and include cult-classics and blockbuster hits such as “The Goonies,” “Raw Deal,” “Die Hard,” “Son of the Pink Panther,” and “Showgirls.” He has worked with such directors as Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner, Blake Edwards, John McTiernan, and Paul Verhoeven, and has worked on film projects with acting talent such as Marlon Brando, Roberto Benigni, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Benicio Del Toro, Danny Glover, and Catherine Zeta Jones, to name a few.

In 2007, Davi produced, directed, co-wrote, and starred in “The Dukes,” which tells the story of a once-successful Doo Wop group who fall on hard times. The film won nine awards including the coveted Coup de Coeur award. Davi was also awarded Best First-time Director and Best Screenplay in the Monte Carlo Festival of Comedy by the legendary director Ettore Scola where Prince Albert presented him with the awards. Davi was the only first-time director in the Premiere Section of the International Rome Film Festival along with Sean Penn, Robert Redford, Sidney Lumet, Julie Taymor, and others.

In 2011, Davi starred with Val Kilmer and Christopher Walken in “Kill the Irishmen,” the true story of Danny Greene, the infamous Irish-American mobster. Davi’s latest major motion picture, another true story, “The Iceman,” is set to release in 2013. The film also stars Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, James Franco, David Schwimmer, and Ray Liotta.

Besides working in music, film and television, and raising his five children, four dogs, and two cats, Davi keeps busy volunteering his time with such charities as The Dream Foundation, Exceptional Children’s Foundation, Heart of a Child Foundation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Youth Foundation, The Humane Society of the United States, Heart of a Horse, NIAF, The Order ‘Sons of Italy’ in America (OSIA), and UNICO National. Since its inception in 1998, Davi has been the National Spokesperson for i-Safe America, which is regarded by many internet experts as the most complete internet safety program in the country and is available in grades K-12 in all 50 U.S. states. In December of 2011, Davi released a Christmas single, “Mistletoe and Holly” that benefited The Salvation Army.

Davi has received numerous awards for career achievement and community involvement. Among his awards, Davi has received the George M. Estabrook Distinguished Service Award from the Hofstra University Alumni Association (past recipients include Francis Ford Coppola and William Safire). In 2000, Davi was awarded the FBI’s Man of the Year Award in Los Angeles. In 2004, Davi was named KNX radios’ “Citizen of the Week” for saving a young girl from a fire in her home. The same year, he also received the Sons of Italy’s Royal Court of the Golden Lion Award including a $20,000 donation to a foundation in which he is involved. In addition, he received the 2004 STEP Award (Science, Technology and Education Partnership) (past recipients include Arnold Schwarzenegger). In 2007, Davi was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Italian Board of Governors in New York, where New York State recognized his value as an artist and community leader. In 2008, he received the Italo-Americano Award from the Capri-Hollywood Festival. In 2011, Davi was awarded the “Military Order of the Purple Heart” (MOPH) Special Recognition Award for dedication and service honoring America’s service members, veterans, and their families.

Davi is currently on The Steering Committee for George Washington University’s Homeland Security Policy Institute and is the only entertainer among 28 members, which consists of mainly Senators and former heads of the FBI and CIA. Davi has developed Civilian Patrol 93, which is currently at Homeland Security, where a lesson plan is being written.

While Teaching and coaching voice professionals from around the world, Jan and David found that they were in constant need of something that would help preserve and take care of their voices, something that was non-addicting or damaging to the vocal cords, and was consistent, safe and reliable.

Welcome to Superior Vocal Health. We have been performing as professional musicians around the world for more than 25 years. We have experienced firsthand the trials of being a professional singer and musician and understand that as professionals one cannot afford a bad performance. Like it or not, we must always be”on”. Vocal Health must be the number one priority in a voice professional’s life, so it’s imperative we keep our throats and bodies in the best condition possible.

When you are flying, staying at strange hotels, overusing your voice every day, and dealing with everyday stresses, staying healthy just isn’t easy. Inevitably the body and voice break down. How many times have you been sick but said, “the show must go on”? It’s happened to all of us. After years of trying every possible remedy on the market with no success, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Superior Vocal Health is the result of years of extensive research and personal experience. Superior Vocal Health was created to give all voice professionals the best tools to care for their voices – naturally – no drugs, no chemicals. Our formulas are designed to restore, rejuvenate, invigorate, and help heal a myriad of vocal issues.

These formulas are not a replacement for proper technique, training, or correct vocal care. That takes hard work, commitment, perseverance, and along with regular checkups with your ENT, learning how to “listen” to your body. Voice professionals around the world use the Superior Vocal Health product line to maintain and keep their voice in top form. Whether we are performing, speaking, rehearsing, auditioning or teaching we always have our Superior Vocal Health products with us. They help keep your vocal cords clear, strong, and healthy.

“Through our own personal experience and the testimonials of countless voice professionals around the world who rely on Superior Vocal Health formulas, you can rest assured Superior Vocal Health products are not only totally safe and good for you, they will work for you! We guarantee it! Stay healthy, and enjoy your voice”. David and Jan
