Remember Chris Mann from the VOICE- 3rd Runner Up. I love the show so I do know who he is, and was very happy when I was offered to review his album.
On the VOICE following one of his many dynamic live performances on the show, Christina Aguilera told him, “I feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and when the series ended, Chris had not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart. What a difference a year makes. Now Mann is signed to Faircraft/Universal Republic, a new label formed by renowned producer/music executive Ron Fair.
Influenced by Pavarotti, Robbie Williams and vintage Sinatra, Chris’blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo, “He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard.”
You really hear all the different music genres he sings~ classical, country, and pop. I was surprised I enjoyed the the album that much because I'm a R&B kind of girl but I liked it a lot! My kids like it too- they were in the car when I put the CD in. I really enjoyed the SMOOTHNESS! This is a CD I will listen when I just need some CALM around me. What a beautiful singer and I'm sure he will be doing BIG THINGS. He is needed in the music industry! My favorite and the one I connected with the most was ROADS. I give this CD a big 2 thumbs up!
If you want to get this CD you can NOW!!! Or buy as a gift.
