Description

    This album is a "homage" to many great artists who departed too soon including our very own Jon English with Ten Tenors performing his international hit Six Ribbons and 2017 is the 20th anniversary of the passing of Michael Hutchence.

    In the blazing heat of the 2016 Australian summer, The Ten Tenors were rehearsing in Melbourne.

    They were midway through their very first run of David Bowie's iconic song, "Heroes," when the news came that David had just passed away. Words can't express how devastating that was, and how it affected the way the group felt singing that song. No one in that room will ever forget the loss they felt over such a true and fearless musical genius.

    Only months later, while touring, the tragic news that Prince had also passed away came through. Nobody imagined for a second that even more great artists were still to be taken from us in 2016. So much loss in such a short time. Although this album doesn't honor all the fallen artists in history, it is our intention to salute them all through those we have paid tribute to.

    Nothing captures this sentiment quite like Roger Waters and David Gilmour's "Wish You Were Here." This is a celebration of the happiness and legacy that these great creatives have given the world. Put simply, to all the lost artists, we 'Wish You Were Here.'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So wishing they were here. This CD brought back such great feelings and memories of artists no longer with us. The renditions are incredible and a credit to the originals. I just play it over and over! LOVE it.
