Editorial Reviews

Forte, the multicultural, operatic tenor trio whose performances on America's Got Talent captivated millions and launched the group into the national spotlight, is pleased to announce the release of their self-titled debut album. The album features the lead track "Caruso," "The Prayer (a duet with fellow America's Got Talent finalist Cami Bradley), as well as several songs the group performed on the show including "My Heart Will Go On," "Unchained Melody," and "Pie Jesu."

It s hard to imagine the members of Forte were complete strangers a few months ago. Having met just days before their first audition for America's Got Talent, the trio mesmerized millions on the eighth season of the reality competition series. Solo artists in their own right, Josh Page, Sean Panikkar and Fernando Varela combine their individual talents to create one incredible, multicultural vocal force.

"To go from complete strangers to a bona fide group on the same label as the top names in music is simply incredible. We can't wait to share this album with our fans." - Forte

Josh Page answered his musical calling in 2011, after randomly being pulled on stage by Josh Groban to duet with the superstar at New York City's Madison Square Garden. He has since been invited to fill in for Andrea Bocelli at rehearsals and joined former America's Got Talent contestant Jackie Evancho on tour as a guest. Sean Panikkar, whose parents are from Sri Lanka, never dreamed of a career in opera. In fact, he enrolled in the engineering program at the University of Michigan. Opera gradually became a bigger part of Panikkar's life, and after college, the singer performed with several prestigious institutions, including the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera. Raised in Puerto Rico, Fernando Varela was discovered on YouTube by hitmaker David Foster and ultimately won Foster's "Born To Sing" contest. Varela's global performances span some 31 countries, including a performance in Monte Carlo, Monaco with Maestro Giancarlo Chiaramello (conductor for the late Luciano Pavarotti), the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra in Canada and the National Symphony at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection! November 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is not one of those CD's where a couple of the tracks are a little weak. Every track on this debut performance is just stunning! These guys are supremely talented, and the arrangements in this collection are wonderful, with chances to hear their magnificent individual voices and then the fantastic harmonies. You will be playing this one over and over. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys either. We will all be awaiting the chance to see these guys live. They will be around a long time!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just received my FORTE cd today. Only one word to describe it. FABULOUS!!! These guys sing with such feeling and emotion. Their voices blend so well together and their singing is flawless! They sing one of the best versions of Pie Jesu and the Unchained Melody I have ever heard! These young men have a very promising future before them. I can't wait to hear more from FORTE in the future!

By BarbA

Being a super-avid Forte Fan, I expected this CD to be very good. However, I was a bit wrong! It will absolutely take your breath away!!!! If you thought they were good on AGT, with the 90 second versions, you'll be BLOWN AWAY by this album! Brilliant to the point of making my heart ache! Bravo, FORTE!! And in the words of my ancestral homeland, "Sto Lat"!!!

Just played the CD received today and it is wonderful ! ! Surely to become one of my all-time favorites. All the songs are great, and "The Prayer" with Cami Bradley is such a nice touch.

Looking forward to more from all of these supremely talented singers !

After Forte's first audition, tenor Hana Ryu from South Korea, had to drop out as he was not a US citizen and was here on a student visa. (AGT's rules). We were very disappointed by this as Hana is a fantastic tenor and a really nice guy. Forte stays in touch with him as does our Forte Tenors... Read more
