Celine Dion Surprises The Canadian Tenors On The Oprah Winfrey Show

Additional Appearances Confirmed On The Dr. Phil Show & The 2010 NBA All-Star Game

TORONTO, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - Canada's Gold-selling, vocal group The Canadian Tenors have been winning over audiences with their heartfelt melodies and compelling live performances. Hailed by Grammy-winning producer David Foster as "following in the footsteps of Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli," The Canadian Tenors - in the midst of an 80-city North American tour, are set to kick off a week of major TV appearances, fittingly on the eve of the XX1 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. First stop on the TV circuit is The Oprah Winfrey Show, airing Wednesday, February 10th.

The Oprah Winfrey Show appearance is a dream-come-true for the Tenors. The four members - Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters - were surprised by Celine Dion on stage during their moving performance of "Hallelujah," the classic Leonard Cohen song. This interpretation, along with The Canadian Tenors version of Foster's "The Prayer," is currently available digitally via iTunes.

In addition to the Oprah appearance, The Canadian Tenors can be seen on the Dr. Phil Show on Friday, February 12th. On Sunday, February 14th, the Canadian Tenors do their country proud by singing the Canadian National Anthem at the 2010 NBA All-Star Game live from Cowboys Stadium, airing at 8PM eastern time on TNT, Score Canada, ESPN Radio and in more than 200 countries. The group will be performing alongside half-time superstar performers Shakira and Usher.

The Canadian Tenors have performed to over a million people on five continents, and were most recently featured on David Foster's acclaimed Hitman tour. An accomplished foursome, they have shared the stage with such notable artists including Sting, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, John Legend, Andrea Bocelli and Sarah McLachlan, and also count former President Bill Clinton as just one of their many fans. Look for The Canadian Tenors to be featured on Public Television later this year, appearing in their very own headlining concert special, with guest appearances by Sarah McLachlan and David Foster.
