In the early 2,000 I was listening to Sarah Brightman(My favorite Soprano, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Russell Watson. One day, some one at Barnes and nobles introduced me to Mario Frangoulis' voice and I was hooked.
I still listen to crossover artists and love the genre but no other artists makes me feel the colors, the joys, sadness and the entire gamut of emotions I feel when listening to Mario Frangoulis.

I was purchasing an Andrea Bocelli CD from Amazon. Amazon mentioned if I enjoyed Andrea Bocelli, I might also enjoy Russell Watson or Mario Frangoulis. I didn't care for Russell Watson's voice but when I heard Mario's voice, I was mesmerized. The CD cover also showed this incredibly handsome man. I purchased 'Sometimes I Dream', then 'Follow Your Heart, several other CDs which I don't think Amazon had in stock. Mario latest CD 'Beautiful Things' has just been released. Mario speaks five languages. In this album, he sings in English, Italian, Spanish and French. This is classical crossover but there is a more pop influence to the songs. Mario's tenor voice is superb. He has a duet with Vanessa Williams and a duetto with Vittorio Grigolo, an Italian tenor. The songs have such beautiful lyrics full of love, beauty and great possibilities. I highly recommend purchasing it. If you think classical crossover is opera, it is not. It is much more contemporary but definitely has an international flavor. I wish Amazon had a category just for classical crossover music. America's Got Talent runner-up, Jackie Evancho, sings classical crossover to give you an example of what the music category is like.

Agree, when i discovered this talented and very humble man, i was; i am enchanted by his voice, the power of the lyrics and mostly how easy we can get to Opera without all the drama inside. Beautiful Things is a proposal of love and compassion, an undying commitment to preserving what is good in this world; thank God for Mario's passion for the human kind... Always searching the best of the best.. no matter if we have to wait three years for it. Also you MUST hear his powerful voice in a concert... Is like to be in Another World :)

Mario is definitely one of my favorites in the genre.

I second what Cappuchino said. I,too, wish Amazon had a category just for classical crossover music.

To the point, no beating around the proverbial bush. Frangoulis's "Some Times I Dream" altho I don't understand a word he is singing is spell binding, who need to understand the words when you hear this voice. Then a great space of time, "Follow Your Heart" appeared. This CD is a bitter disappointment. Then I ordered the "Duets Album" more disappointment... Goodbye Mario

There is nothing as beautiful as Sometimes I Dream. Many of the songs are in English. Although O Kipos is in Greek, which I don't understand either, but love the cd. Sorry you were disappointed. I love the richness and colors on Mario's voice.

Heller, help me here. What duet album are you talking about? I know that Salvatore Licitra and Marcelo Alvarez have a duet cd, which I really like. But I do not know of one by Mario. Would love to have it because it is not in my collection. You mean Music of the night? The Acropolis Concert? Mario my best of Frangoulis? Season of Love I or II? Mario Frangoulis and Friends?I or II? Amor oscuro? Feggari erotevmeno? O kipos ton efhon? I am quite sure I am forgetting a few.

I agree with you Magda.Mario is the best.I've been listening to him since 2003 and after meeting him in Greece in 2005 I was hooked too.Yes, we went to Athens and saw him "live" for 2 nights. in Music of the Night.He was happy to see people from the USA and treated us to his party and dinners.I'll never forget him,besides his good looks,he has a warm personality.See you in Facebook Dottie
