The Texas Tenors strode onto the scene in 2009, debuting on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and racking up Texas-sized interest as a finalist on the hit show. The trio went on to become the third highest grossing recording artists in its history.
Tune into NBC now to catch The Texas Tenors on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions”, as they boot up for an ongoing competition against the best acts from 194 countries in a quest for the Champion title.
Turn up to catch them live onstage at Thalia Mara Hall as musical guests with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra Feb. 2.
The Texas Tenors continue to collect the accolades and honors, including three Emmy Awards for their first PBS special, “You Should Dream,” and more critical acclaim for their second special, “Rise.” Recent albums “Rise” and “A Collection of Broadway & American Classics” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s classical chart. The all-star classical crossover trio has performed more than 1,300 concerts worldwide, the National Christmas Tree Lighting at the White House among them.
Beyond concert halls, they’ve been featured on “The Today Show,” Hallmark’s “Home & Family,” the 28th Annual Cinematheque Awards honoring Matthew McConaughey, NBA games, the PBR World Championships in Las Vegas and a slew of charity events.
These ‘three friends with a dream” — Marcus Collins, John Hagen and JC Fisher — bring big talents to The Texas Tenors, which successfully straddles opera, country, Broadway and pop with top-notch vocals, a dash of humor and a wink of cowboy charm.
Here are some fun facts about each of The Three Tenors:
Collins learned singing by emulating his favorite, including Garth Brooks, George Michael and Freddie Mercury. As well as cruise ship performances and musicals on stage, he’s worked extensively as an actor on TV and film, including appearances in “P.S. I Love You,” “Semi-Pro,” “30 Rock” and “Sex and the City.”
Hagen has performed his highly regarded Verdi “Requiem” and Beethoven’s 9th with more than a dozen symphonies across the country. He made his Lincoln Center debut in Teatro Grattacielo’s mounting of Mascagni’s “Gulglielmo Ratcliff” and his vast array of operatic roles ranges from Alfredo in “La Traviata” to the title role of “Otello” for Cleveland Opera on tour.
Fisher, who grew up with a passion for sports and church singing, has performed roles from Rodolfo in “La Boheme” and Tamino in “The Magic Flute” to Ernesto in “Don Pasquale” and Henrick in “A Little Night Music.” His experience as a guest entertainer aboard cruise ships worldwide allowed him to create a show featuring many musical genres, eventually leading to his idea of forming The Texas Tenors.
