The Texas Tenors deliver an amazing blend of country and classical crossover music and have performed more than 1,400 live concerts in just the last 10 years. Three of those concerts were performed in Van Wert to sold-out crowds. 

Composed of three friends with a simple All-American dream, Marcus, JC, and John have proven their impact will be long-lasting as their popularity continues to grow.

The versatile trio of tenors consists of Broadway singer Marcus Collins, also known as “The Contemporary Tenor;” country singer JC Fisher, known as “The Romantic Tenor;” and John Hagen, known simply as “The Tenor” — each with immense talent in his own right. 

The trio has amassed a huge fan base worldwide, with over half a million followers on social media and more than 20 million views on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

Brought together by “America’s Got Talent” dreams, their chance union turned into overwhelming success. 

“Marcus and I met working on cruise ships 20 years ago. John and I met while working construction,” said JC Fisher. “We all trained classically in college and love all genres of music. 

“My wife and I watched ‘America’s Got Talent’ with our kids,” Fisher added. “I thought, ‘I’ve got a couple of buddies. We should put a trio together and audition.’ We did, and we’ve never looked back.” 

The Texas Tenors appeared on the most recent season of NBC’s national hit television show “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” and were Billboard magazine’s No. 10 “Classical Artist in the World” for 2019. With impressive live ticket sales tracked by Pollstar, the trio is considered the most successful touring group in the history of “America’s Got Talent.”
