Released 5th August 2013
Victor Micallef, Clifton Murray, Fraser Walters, and Remigio Pereira, who together make The Tenors, were recently referred to as The Buckingham Palace House Band, having been invited back a number of times to perform at private events attended by members of the royal family. With the release of ‘Lead With Your Heart’ it will soon become clear why.
A vocal group without equal, The Tenors have played over 500 shows on five continents and made over 150 TV appearances around the world. Already hugely popular in the States, they have performed on The Emmy Awards and Oprah (where fellow Canadian superstar Celine Dion joined them for a duet), found fans in President Obama and the G20 world leaders, as well as world-class musicians such as Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sting, Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder and Andrea Bocelli (with whom they have shared the stage). They have also sung with Canadian musicians Justin Beiber, Sarah McLachlan, Paul Anka and David Foster, and performed for British Prime Ministers, Blair and Cameron.
‘Lead With Your Heart’, which showcases their mesmerising, world-class vocals, has already won a JUNO Award and shot to No.1 in both the US Classical and Crossover Charts. The unusual combination of pop and operatic voices, which complement each other perfectly, is irresistibly romantic. The album includes original material, co-written by The Tenors themselves, such as the opening track, You and I (Vinceremo) which is based on the recognisable Bach Cello Suite theme as well as World Stand Still, Journees d’innocence’ and Lullaby (The Smile Upon Your Face), which features the Grammy-winning American trumpeter Chris Botti. There are also new interpretations of classic songs such as Bob Dylan's hit track, Forever Young’, and Me He Enamorado De Ti (Woman in Love) by Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees. Also included are timeless favourites such as ‘Amazing Grace’, here arranged by The Tenors, and an impressive Nessun Dorma which pays tribute to the world’s greatest tenor, also signed to Decca, the late Luciano Pavarotti. Not only do they sing (and speak) in five different languages, the four singers also play their own instruments, making The Tenors completely unique.
