Home » Chris Mann “Roads” CD Review

When Chris Mann appeared on “The Voice” last year, I fell in love! I mean I fell in love with his voice! LOL So much so that I bet my husband that Chris Mann would be the winner of the show.  Although he made it to the finals, he was not chosen as the winner and I was upset I lost my bet!  Chris Mann has a voice that is just out of this world and I don’t say that about a lot of singers!  You could basically compare him to such talented singers like Josh Groban and Michael Bublé.

When I had the chance to review his debut CD, Roads, I jumped on it!  I had no idea his CD was out. When I found out I was selected to review the CD, I was excited! I’m happy to have it. 🙂

I’ve listened to it a few times, while sitting here working on my laptop, singing along with him.  I absolutely LOVE how he sings Ave Maria! He puts so much emotion in that song, that it gives me chills!  The Blower’s Daughter featuring Christina Aguilera, is one of my favorite songs on the CD the other being Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now”. (Need you now reminds me of my husband)

I have enjoyed all the other songs on his CD, including, My Way by Frank Sinatra, and Willie Nelson’s classic “Always on My Mind”. Also included on the CD is the song he first performed on “The Voice” – a joyful, sweeping version of Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida.” Chris Mann has a powerful, expressive voice.  He has a classical background in singing, and he puts his own spin on different genre of music.  That’s what makes it so easy to love his voice!

As a finalist on the hit NBC television series “The Voice,” Chris Mann captured the hearts of millions while drawing the respect of multi-platinum talents such as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo. Following one of his many dynamic live performances on the show, Aguilera told him, “I feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and when the series ended, Chris had not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart.

Influenced by Pavarotti, Robbie Williams and vintage Sinatra, Chris’ blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo, “He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard.”
