In 2009, Marcus Collins was out of work.  Although he had been singing since he was four-years-old, his big break was always just around the corner.  One day he got a call from his buddies, John Hagen, and JC Fisher, who saw an audition posting for America’s Got Talent.  Three months later, they walked onto the stage of America’s Got Talent as The Texas Tenors, and their lives changed forever.

 

Talent as Big as Texas

Although The Texas Tenors did not win the top honor in America’s Got Talent, the group became the highest ranking vocal group in the show’s history and one of only two acts that starred in their own television special for PBS, which earned them three Emmy Awards..  They have performed more than 1000 concerts around the world, including a 24-city tour in the United Kingdom, Shanghai, and China.  According to Billboard Magazine, they were recently named 2017’s  #10 Classical Crossover artist in the World and their most recent album, A Collection of Broadway & American Classics just debuted at #1.

 

Classical Music Meets Cattle Ranching

Considered a pop tenor, Marcus Collins, grew up on the music of Garth Brooks and George Michael but trained classically in college. As an actor he has appeared in more than 100 episodes of network television and 25 films including P.S I Love You, Semi-Pro, 30 Rock, One Life to Live, and As the World Turns.

The Texas Tenors cut a wide swath when it comes to their music selections.  They are as comfortable with country, opera, and gospel as they are with pop, classical, and timeless oldies.  They have been featured on NBC’s The Today Show, Hallmark’s Home and Family, and recently performed at the White House for President Trump, the first family, and America at the 2017 National Tree Lighting.  2019 will be an exciting year for Marcus, JC, and John as they will appear in January on NBS’s new series, America’s Got Talent:  The Champions.  The Texas Tenors are among the top 50 from 184 countries and the only vocal group from the United States chosen to participate in the new, all-star series.

They are committed to quality family entertainment for all ages and are generous to many charitable organizations, including Homes for our Troops, and Shriners Hospitals for Children, donating partial proceeds from their award winning children’s book, Ruckus on the Ranch, to the life-changing cause.

 

Described as easy on the eyes with voices that melt a heart like butter, The Texas Tenors will appear at Leach Theater in Rolla, Missouri, presenting their hit holiday show, Deep in the Heart of Christmas, for one night only, on Friday, November 9, sponsored by The Kaleidoscope Weekly, Alpha Media, Bott Radio Network, Fidelity Communications, Rolla Daily News, and KFLW 98.9 “The Fort”.  For ticket information call Leach Theatre box office at 573-341-4219 or leach@mst.edu.

John Hagen, known as The Texas Tenor’s opera tenor, is highly regarded for his performances of the Verdi Requiem and Beethoven’s Symphonies No.9, having performed these works with more than a dozen symphonies across the United States.
The Texas Tenors’ JC Fisher, the romantic tenor, enjoyed singing in his church and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music at Wichita State University. He has been a guest entertainer aboard more than 75 cruise ships, but his most memorable performance is still one from college, where he found his future wife and mother of their three beautiful children.
