Will began his career in show business at 10 years old singing jingle commercials with his twin brother, Anthony (an acclaimed singer-songwriter). He went on to perform for 25 years after that with Anthony across the country and around the world with dozens of symphony orchestras eventually headlining Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops.
