From the moment The Ten Tenors burst upon the concert scene in Germany in 2001, their international career was launched. Since then, the classically-trained, all-Australian singing sensation has embarked on a relentless touring schedule with sold-out performances in Europe, Asia and their native Australia. The group has appeared alongside such artists as Rod Stewart, Andrea Boccelli, Alanis Morissette, Willie Nelson and many others.
 
The Ten Tenors have been seen by more than 77 million people on four continents, selling out shows and winning hearts with their unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal prowess in opera, pop, rock and more. From arias to ABBA, their unique style is an unparalleled fusion of artistry, musicianship and comedy.
 
The Ten Tenors' CD "Larger Than Life" was released in North America in 2004 by Rhino Records with rave reviews. Their concert, taped live in Brisbane, Australia (the Tenors' hometown), has been aired on public television stations throughout the United States and Canada. Their CD "One is Not Enough" reached the "Top 10" in the European pop charts, and they were invited by Disney to record the theme song "Jungle Rhythm" for the film Jungle Book 2 (2003). They have been awarded "Best Artist Pop Meets Classics Award" by the Radio Hamburg Awards and received The Variety Group of the Year Award at the 29th annual Australian Entertainment MO Awards.
