Mark Vincent (born 4 September 1993 in Caringbah, New South Wales) is an Australian tenor.[1] Vincent won Australia's Got Talent on 22 April 2009. His main inspiration is his late grandfather, Bruno, who raised him and taught him how to sing. Vincent has said that he would like to follow in the footsteps of his idol Anthony Warlow. He also stated that he admired opera singers Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavarotti.

Vincent attended school at De La Salle College Caringbah[2] and De La Salle College in Cronulla.[3] He hopes to study at the Milan Conservatory, the leading musical institution in Italy where Giacomo Puccini studied.[4]
