Meet the Texas Tenors!
Guess who will provide entertainment at Close To My Heart's Convention this year? The Texas Tenors!
The Texas Tenors is a trio composed of Marcus Collins, who has a track record in musical theater as well as acting; JC Fisher, a seasoned opera singer; and John Hagen, the winner of various awards and accolades for operatic performance who has also lent his voice to Broadway. These three men bring a wealth of musical expertise, both in theory and application.
The threesome’s rise to fame and stardom is something of a Cinderella story. Each man was struggling financially before deciding to work together under the title of something they love: the Lone Star State. These talented troubadours came together in 2009 to audition for “America’s Got Talent” and made it to the finals of the show’s fourth season. Since then, they have performed together worldwide, entertaining audiences on both sides of the pond. Their debut album, “Country Roots — Classical Sound,” is the lone album to have topped the charts for CD Baby’s Classical as well as Country categories.
Styles we are tempted to think of as clashing are melded together in a flavorful stew of euphonious enjoyment. At a Texas Tenors concert, you’ll hear anything from John Denver, to Frank Sinatra, to Puccini, to Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. These crooning cowboys bring together and win over disparate audiences, and have been known to make a country fan out of an opera lover and vice versa. And they’re not bad to look at, either.
Just when you thought Convention couldn’t get any more exciting, we throw in world-class entertainers who’ve got something for everyone. The Texas Tenors will add the perfect flair to our Texas Convention! Don’t miss your chance to see the Texas Tenors live!
