Mark, Jason and Carlos are Tenore, a North American group that tours around the world singing their versions of traditional and classic Christian songs, like the Our Father.
"We believe music has the power to unite when so many things try to divide us... So our music, really our passion, is to bring Christians, Protestants, Catholics, Jews, and people of no faith together through the music that we sing.”
Tenore also has one goal: to help children who are suffering around the world. One of their greatest hits is a song written in Italian and English entitled "Sempre Vicino” (Always Close). The founder of the group, Jill Ann Siemens, wrote it when she found out that 700 children were orphaned after 9/11.
"In all of our concerts we basically bring awarness to those around the world have less and are in need, and we give people the opportunity to give money to support children. In that way we give back. And a portion of most of our Cds sells goes to help children as well.”
Tenore recently visited Rome to sing at a conference on ecumenism.
With two albums released, three GM Covenant Awards and full schedule of upcoming concerts, Mark, Jason and Carlos hope to continue doing what they love most: singing and inspiring people.
