The Gift That Keeps On Giving

By Natasha Slinko

Four incredibly diverse and multi-talented gentlemen - Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira, and Fraser Walters and their newest member Clifton Murray, come together to form The Canadian Tenors. Each performer has diversified musical experience, various backgrounds and perspectives in their training, yet when they sing together in their four-part harmony, it is truly magic.

The Canadian Tenors originally stole the hearts of people world-wide with their debut album entitled The Canadian Tenors, with tracks such as ‘We Were Born to Shine’ and ‘Your Moment Is Here’. With the release of the Christmas CD The Perfect Gift, they will continue to capture the hearts of their audience.

This past year has been a whirlwind for this Canadian act. They are in midst of an 80-city North America tour and on November 29th dropped by Calgary to perform Oh Canada at the Grey Cup. They have performed 100 concerts for over a million people in five continents in less than three years.

The Canadian Tenors were hand-picked by the brilliant 15-time Grammy award winning producer David Foster for his “Foster & Friends 2009” tour, who was quoted as saying “They are following in the footsteps of Josh Grobin and Andre Bocelli”. They have had the joy of performing with the likes of Sarah McLachlan, Andre Bocelli, Sting, Alicia Keyes and Sheryl Crow, just to name a few. The Perfect Gift Tour with David Foster, which started in November, has taken the Tenors all over North America and even to the National Concert Hall in Ireland.

This is a musical creation of a very different kind, but nevertheless it seems a new Fab Four has been born with a twist - shaken not stirred - of classical, contemporary and pop music mixed with voices that reach out and touch your soul.

These four extraordinary performers have come forward to this moment in time to celebrate their success by thanking their fans for their support by recording their Christmas album, “The Perfect Gift”, which went gold after only three and a half weeks. Enjoy the sounds of the title track ‘The Perfect Gift’ along with Christmas classics such as ‘O Holy Night’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Ava Maria.’ Just when you think it can’t get any better, Sara McLachlan is featured with The Canadian Tenors on Wintersong as well as their own rendition of Leonard Cohen's ‘Hallelujah’ that will take you and your family into the Christmas Spirit.

Just returning from the U.K. and appearing on highly watched shows like Canada AM and CITY TV’s Breakfast Television, the four singers show their loyalty by sharing their talent with local Toronto media.

Over the Christmas Season, from December 18th – 23rd, The Canadian Tenors will be performing Christmas Concerts in Markham, St. Catherines and Brampton, Ontario, which would be such a wonderful experience and another “perfect gift” to share with your family and friends, of all ages. After the Christmas Season, they will then continue on their North American Tour.

The Canadian Tenors, each with their own unique, beautiful voice, blend into something that is truly divine.

Looking for The Perfect Gift, then this is it, for it is a gift that will truly keep on giving and the colour of this gift is GOLD.
