Deftly and splendidly performing both their own material and a diverse assortment of classics from all corners of the music industry, ‘The Tenors’ evoked ovation after ovation as fans leapt to their feet to applaud after each and every number.
As if awakening bygone memories, Victor Micallef, Clifton Murray and Fraser Walters serenaded a full house at the Seminole Casino Hotel with melodies from their many multi-platinum albums…”The Prayer,” “I Remember You,” “Hallelujah,” “Bésame Mucho” and the Tom Jones classic, “Delilah,” to name a mere few. Backstage, Clifton joked about having to deliver the song’s murderous line, “I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more,” as if incriminating himself.
While their delivery of “Con Te Partirò” was beyond stirring, a surprise rendition of “Queen’s” “Bohemian Rhapsody” quite possibly eclipsed the intensity and amplitude of Freddy Mercury’s presentation.
Unlike many artists who benefit significantly from the digital processing done in the recording studio, “The Tenors” consistently generate the brilliant and imposing vocals that one hears on their recorded material…a clear indication of their pure and unparalleled talent.
It is, however, the kindness…the decency…the humility and the appreciation that members of the group radiate that makes them the wondrous performers that they are. Deserving of all of the accolades and fan devotion, the popularity of the vocal group continues to blossom.
Enjoying glasses of wine, speaking earnestly to the audience, “The Tenors” share personal narratives regarding their families, career challenges, and their adoration for the music that they perform.
Clifton Murray spent a good part of the morning, last week, chatting with the Lee Herald. That interview can be read by clicking here.
“The Tenors” continue their tour north of the border as they prepare for a June 4 performance in Ontario.
“The Tenors” four albums, “The Canadian Tenors,” “The Perfect Gift,” “Lead With Your Heart” and “Under One Sky” can be purchased both online and at all retail music outlets.
