The Tenors (formerly known as The Canadian Tenors) are a vocal group consisting of Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters and Clifton Murray. They perform operatic pop music that is a mixture of classical and pop, featuring songs such as "The Prayer" and Panis Angelicus from the former genre, and Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah from the latter.
In July 2016, The Tenors announced that Remigio Pereira would no longer be performing with the group, because he altered the lyrics to "O Canada" at the 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game — from "With glowing hearts we see thee rise, the True North strong and free," to "We're all brothers and sisters, all lives matter to the great."
Originating from Canada, Micallef from Toronto, Walters from Vancouver and Murray from Port McNeill, the Tenors have performed on more than 60 international television programs. They appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show with Celine Dion in 2010, at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, at the opening ceremonies of 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and on ITV (TV network) Diamond Jubilee Show at Windsor Castle for HM Queen Elizabeth II. The venues they have performed in include the Tel Aviv Opera House, and the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. They also appeared on the 2009 Grey Cup broadcast and on CBC Television's Holiday Festival of Ice.
Universal Music Group released their platinum-selling self-titled debut album and double-platinum holiday album, The Perfect Gift. The Tenors filmed a PBS special at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts that began airing in 2012.
The Canadian Tenors were renamed The Tenors in November 2012 in advance of their third album Lead With Your Heart. Also in 2012, The Tenors signed a US distribution deal with Verve Records.
The Tenors latest album Lead With Your Heart went platinum in Canada in seven weeks. The album garnered a 2013 JUNO Award for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year and a JUNO Award Nomination for Jack Richardson for Producer of the Year for Bob Ezrin's production of the title track "Forever Young." Lead With Your Heart was featured on Katie, Good Morning America, Access Hollywood, ET Canada, CNN Morning Live, e-Talk and FOX & Friends.
