Anna Zaccaria started life alone. She was born in Esquintia, Guatemala where she lived the first 15 months of her life in an orphanage in a very depressed area of Guatemala City. The orphanage housed about 30 other children, all under the age of two. Tony and Wendy Zaccaria wanted a baby to share their life with…Anna came home with them to State College PA in 2002.
Tony’s dad was a Bluegrass musician and at age 7 little Anna started learning all of her grandfathers music. Anna began touring all over Pennsylvania with her grandfather , singing every weekend to a new audience.
When Anna was only 8 1/2 years old tragedy struck. Her beloved mentor , her grandfather was diagnosed with a brain tumor…9 months later he passed away.
After that Anna stopped singing. Her voice was silent as she dealt with the loss of the man that had inspired her love of music.
Enter Adele. The first time Anna heard Adele’s voice she felt that desire that drives so many in the muisc to dream. She began to sing again. Anna would like to inspire people the way Adele once again lit a fire in
