DVD, CHRIS MANN IN CONCERT: A MANN FOR ALL SEASONS
In 2011, Chris Mann faced his make-or-break moment in his blind audition on NBC’s singing competition, The Voice, when he took the stage to perform Andrea Bocelli’s song, “Because We Believe.” Mann blew everyone away with his stunning classical voice, and landed on a team coached by Christina Aguilera, who told him, “I feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and Chris Mann became one of the breakout stars of season two with his heavenly voice and dynamic live performances.

Influenced by Pavarotti and vintage Sinatra, Chris’ blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo Green, “He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard.” By the time his season of The Voice ended, Chris had landed not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart.

Now he’s found a home here on PBS, singing a collection of classical-crossover favorites live in concert with two very special guests – four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and 14-time Grammy nominated Martina McBride, and bestselling contemporary jazz saxophonist Mindi Abair. In his first concert special, Chris Mann performs an exciting and eclectic blend of songs, ranging from “Ave Maria” to Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind,” to Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.”

Chris also performs an updated version of “My Way,” which Paul Anka rewrote specifically for him, as the new voice of the classic song. Anka tweaked the lyrics so that, instead of looking back, this new version is from the point of view of a young man looking hopefully ahead. That Anka would, for the first time ever, reconsider Frank Sinatra’s masterpiece means a great deal to Mann, whose late grandfather had himself once headed to Los Angeles in an attempt to make it as a Sinatra-influenced crooner, only to abandon his dream, return to Wichita, Kansas, and start a family. “I was raised on Sinatra by my granddad, so I have a strong connection to him as I’m pursuing my own dream. If he’d known that I’d one day be working with Paul Anka, and that I’d be recording the only other official version of ‘My Way,’ he would be so proud and excited.”

Chris is signed to Faircraft/Universal Republic, and launched his debut album, Roads. He has toured with Grammy Award-winner India.Arie and Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel. He's also performed at high profile events including the Sundance Film Festival, the Academy Awards Young Hollywood Party, and the American Film Institute Awards, among others. Chris was also featured in “David Foster and Friends” at special events in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C, performing “The Prayer” with Katharine McPhee and David Foster. Mann’s voice has also been featured in films such as Avatar, Glee 3D, Letters to Juliet, Tangled, Sex and the City 2, The Smurfs, 2012, and many more.

Bonus Material: Behind the scenes footage and interviews with the stars and visionaries behind the breath-taking program.

CD Track List


CD, CHRIS MANN: ROADS

Roads boasts a wildly eclectic assortment of songs, ranging from Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” to “Ave Maria” and Damien Rice’s “The Blowers’ Daughter,” with the latter featuring a special guest appearance from Christina Aguilera. About “The Blower’s Daughter” and singing with Chris, Aguilera says, “It's a beautiful song and I really respect the way he’s expressing himself on the album. Everything from his tone, to his richness, to his soulfulness comes through loud and clear.”

Mann co-wrote two songs, “Cuore,” based on Bach’s “Air on a G String,” and the contemporary ballad “Falling.” A widescreen take on Coldplay’s anthem Viva La Vida – which sounds like it was written expressly for Mann to sing -- provides the album with an ecstatic climax.

While Mann chose most of the material himself, it was his producer, Ron Fair, who instigated what would become the album’s centerpiece -- connecting with Paul Anka, who was so taken with Mann’s voice and story that he reworked “My Way” specifically for Chris. Anka tweaked the lyrics so that, instead of being about a guy looking back, this new version is written from the point of view of a young man looking hopefully ahead -- a notion central to the theme of Roads.

  1. Roads
  2. Need You Now
  3. Cuore
  4. My Way
  5. Unless You Mean It
  6. Always On My Mind
