The Texas Tenors - Marcus Collins, JC Fisher and John Hagen - had the audience swaying and singing along to the high-energy performance, which included pop, country, Broadway, Americana, and opera. The Texas Tenors are America's Got Talent Champions and three-time Emmy Award winners for crossover musical trio. Their albums, "Rise" and "A Collection of Broadway & American Classics," both debuted at #1 on the charts, making the Texas Tenors Billboard Magazine's #10 Classical Crossover Artists in the world. They have performed over 1,400 concerts around the world, produced four studio albums and two PBS Specials in the last 10 years.
As a tribute to the Schultz-Hill Foundation's arts outreach into the community, the concert included special guest performers, the Holy Spirit High School Select Choir under the direction of Ms. Claire Collins. The students sang backup for several of the songs performed by the Texas Tenors, and soloist Vanessa DeJean sang a showstopping rendition of Whitney Houston's One Moment in Time.
Lloyd Levenson of Cooper Levenson Attorneys at Law was master of ceremonies, and WOND Radio Host David Spatz introduced the performers. Resorts President Mark Giannantonio thanked the Texas Tenors for bringing the audience back to the showroom.
