The Canadian Tenors are a vocal quartet comprised of members Remigio Pereira, Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters, and Clifton Murray. The quartet are known for their performance of operatic pop, which consists of classical music and mainstream music. They have been hailed as one of Canada’s “national treasures” by critics and fans alike.
On February 10th, 2010, the group had the privilege of visiting the Oprah Winfrey Show, where they held a mini concert. While singing their rendition of the song “Hallelujah,” they get the surprise of a lifetime. As they’re singing, someone comes up from backstage to surprise them, and the guys are absolutely shocked when they see that it’s none other than legendary Canadian songstress, Celine Dion!
Celine Dion has had an inspiring career that has spanned over three decades and counting. She became a teen star when her manager and future husband, René Angélil, mortgaged his house to finance her debut album. From there, it was a steady climb to the top of the music industry, including her mega-hit single “My Heart Will Go On,” which also served as the theme song for James Cameron’s epic blockbuster film, Titanic. For her achievements in the performing arts, she has been awarded admission into the Order of Canada, the National Order of Quebec, and the Legion of Honor.
