Chris Mann in Concert!  (Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 7:30)

In performance with the Long Bay Symphony Pops

Chris Mann certainly shined as a finalist on The Voice, but his star has risen even higher since the hit show’s second season. His debut full-length, Roads, introduced a whole new generation to the classical-pop genre and shot straight to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Chart and Top 5 on Billboard’s Classical Chart. Upon its release, he gave numerous high-profile television performances, including playing for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as part of TNT’s “Christmas In Washington” special, appeared on “The Today Show,” the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and “NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center Special.” Mann also released a holiday EP, Home For Christmas, which was sold exclusively at Walmart and hit No. 1 on the chain’s Best-Selling Albums List.

He kicked off 2013 with a performance on “Conan” and his very own PBS Special helmed by award-winning producer Ken Ehrlich. Airing this past March on PBS stations nationwide, “A Mann For All Seasons” featured special guest appearances by multi-platinum artist Martina McBride and Mindi Abair and is a re-creation of the Elvis Presley ’69 Comeback Special with Chris performing in a boxing ring on a Sony soundstage.

The aptly-titled Roads represents the culmination of a long and challenging journey for this gifted and dedicated young artist, who had been pushing forward against what had appeared to be overwhelming odds. The album boasts a wildly eclectic assortment of songs, ranging from Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind,” “Ave Maria,” Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter,” which features a special guest appearance by his “Voice” coach Christina Aguilera, and Paul Anka’s “My Way,” which was reworked by Anka specifically for Mann.

Chris will be available for a Meet & Greet prior to the performance on Saturday, October 19 for a minimum donation of $50 to the Long Bay Symphony. Limited availability on tickets.
