Texas Tenors at YCPAC 1 20 2023

The Texas Tenors — three singers who captured hearts on America’s Got Talent then launched to international stardom — are returning to Prescott at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center (YCPAC), 1100 E. Sheldon St., Prescott.

“It’s an eclectic mix of everything from country to classical, something for everyone,” Tenor Marcus Collins said in an email.

The Texas Tenors effortlessly move from classical music to country ballads to contemporary pop. They got their big break in 2009 on America’s Got Talent and have become the most successful music group and third-highest selling artist ever to appear on the program.

“America’s Got Talent gave the Texas Tenors the kind of exposure that money could possibly buy it, and [we are] the champions,” Collins stated. “All-Stars addition was truly an honor, as we were the only vocal group chosen to compete from the United States.”

Since their appearance on America’s Got Talent, Collins and his fellow tenors, JC Fisher and John Hagen, have toured the world, climbed the musical charts, and tallied an impressive list of numbers, including five studio albums, two PBS specials, three Emmy awards and the distinction of being named Billboard Magazine’s #10 Classical Artist in the World.

Their 2017 YCPAC concert, which made them local favorites, is just one of more than 1,500 concerts they have performed all over the world in the past decade. The Texas-born performers have built a versatile and family-friendly style by playing every possible venue, from performing arts centers to casinos and symphony halls to outdoor festivals and corporate events.

“We feel like there is a visceral reaction to our show, people leave uplifted and there’s nothing in the show that you need to explain or apologize for, pure entertainment,” Collins said. “We are like family and [we] love and respect each other. We love what we do and we hope that it shows on stage.”

The Texas Tenors collaborate with some of the world’s most prestigious symphonies, including the Houston Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, and The City of Prague Orchestra. They have performed at the White House National Tree Lighting, and the Congressional Medal of Honor ceremonies as well as numerous NBA games and charity events.

“Every job has its challenges,” Collins said. “You never know what can happen today or tomorrow in the world and we just wanna make great music and uplift people and enjoy what we do.”

Tickets for the Texas Tenors start at $35. The YCPAC Ticket Office is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Thursdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
