Tenore shares inspired music Saturday

Tenore: The Christian Tenors, who are billed as performing inspirational music “with rock star charisma,” will sing on Saturday in Red Deer.

The three tenors, including Canadian Idol Top 5 contender Shane Wiebe, will take the stage at 7 p.m. at the CrossRoads Church.

The Raise Your Voices Tour, which begins in Ontario and finishes in Alberta, will include selections from the trio’s self-titled debut album.

Wiebe, Jason Catron and Mark David Williams, will perform such songs as This is My Father’s World, How Great Thou Art, It is Well With My Soul, You’ll Never Walk Alone and The Lord’s Prayer.

Tenore will also tackle the award-winning International Song of Peace, Sempre Vicino.

Weibe, who considers Lionel Richie an unrivalled talent, believes the song choices endear audiences to Tenore.

“These are songs that everyone knows, making it easy to sing along. Tenore takes these familiar tunes and infuses an adrenaline rush.”

Advance tickets are $26 from www.singtenore.com/tour or Scott’s Parable Christian Store in Gasoline Alley, south of Red Deer, or $30 at the door.
