Mark Vincent: A Tribute to Mario Lanza
Singing from the age of 15, Mark Vincent has gone on to become one of Australia’s most beloved tenors, having released nine consecutive #1 ARIA Classical Crossover Albums, and having earned accolades both nationally and internationally.
Vincent’s last album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, contains the ground breaking ‘virtual duet’ of “Because You’re Mine” with the Hollywood legend. The ‘duet’ made headlines and received the patronage of Mario Lanza’s daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recoding of the ‘virtual duet’ and said, “I’m pleased to allow my father’s recoded voice to be joined on this historic recording by the exciting young tenor, Mark Vincent.”
Like many other tenors, Mark discovered Mario Lanza through the film, The Great Caruso. Mark describes that moment, saying, “Throughout the whole movie I was in awe and struck by the incredible beauty of operatic singing and the urgency and intensity of his voice. It has been a life-long dream of mine to record an album as a tribute to an artist who was an inspiration to many modern singers including The Three Tenors, Andrea Bocelli, and even Elvis Presley. I am so proud to be the first Australian tenor to have recorded this album and tour this show across Australia.”
Released by Sony Music Australia, Tribute debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and at #1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Charts. The album went on to be the highest selling ARIA Classical Crossover album of 2017.
Fans can expect a showstopper evening with Mark performing a rich repertoire of songs and arias made popular by the great Italian-American tenor and actor Mario Lanza.
Additionally, Mark will take the audience through the journey of his incredible career to date by performing beautiful renditions of songs such as ‘Hallelujah’, ‘You Raise Me Up’, ‘Nessun Dorma’ and his new single ‘This Is Not the End”.
