Daniel Rodriguez, "America's Beloved Tenor"
Came to light during one of the darkest times of our nation's history. He was the New York City Police Officer whose amazing voice comforted a grieving nation in the days following 9-11-2011. He continues to inspire, stir and embrace his listeners through his recordings and memorable live concert performances.
Andy Cooney, christend "Irish America's Favorite Son" by the New York Times, is a title he truly deserves. Andy has been taking the Irish American scene by storm for the last 20 years. His unique tenor voice has been heard in concert halls internationally including two sold out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall.
Michael Amante, affectionately known as "The People's Tenor", is a combination of All-American looks, romantic Italian charm and an incredibe voice. Legendary performer Tony Bennett is quoted saying, "Michael's remarkable range of notes and his ability to sing everything from opera to Broadway to contemporary, gives this tenor an intimate connection with anyone who hears him."
Ronan Tynan, is truly a modern day "Renaissance Man". Faced with numerous challenges throughout his well documented life, he has persevered with enourmous passion and determination. He attributes his success to his faith and the knowledge that the Man Above guides him through every door he opens. Introduced to the international audiences as a founding member of The Irish Tenors, Tynan quickly become known for his unique voice and irresistible appeal.
