In tribute to one of America's foremost civic leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The Tenors will commemorate their U.S. release date, January 15th, which is also the birth date of Dr. King, by pausing from their promotional activity to join the thousands of people across America that will be serving their communities throughout the week for the National Martin Luther King Jr. Call to Service. The Tenors will visit The Children's Storefront -- an independent, tuition free school for Pre-K - 8th grade located in Harlem, New York. The group will have a discussion and Q&A segment with the school's 5th-8th grade students, led by the head and assistant head of school, Wendy Reynoso and Michael Williams. The Tenors will close out the assembly with a performance including a final number with the school's choir.

LEAD WITH YOUR HEART is a 12-track journey that stretches the boundaries of classical crossover music by combining classic songs, modern tunes, and Spanish and French world music. From much-loved covers such as Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" and Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word," to the inspirational anthem "Amazing Grace," and one of the most recognizable and heroic Tenor arias, "Nessun Dorma," the diverse track list features an eclectic mix of pop favorites and classical staples, along with new compositions written and co-written by The Tenors. Collaborating on this exciting new album with The Tenors are world-renowned producers and co-writers including Walter Afanasieff (Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Jackson), Bob Ezrin (Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd) and Marco Marinangeli (Josh Groban, Il Divo, Placido Domingo).
