Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan have been touring together as The Irish Tenors with sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world. Their faces and voices are familiar to PBS audiences through several specials, including the "Ellis Island" recordings that sold a million CDs and DVDs. In the United States, they are one of the most successful Irish touring acts ever, second only to U2.
On December 13, 2012 the Irish Tenors made a special visit and did a few songs for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in Breezy Point, NY.
The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy has been felt all over and The Irish Tenors just wanted to do something for their many fans that are going through so much. With the help of Operation Blessing International (OBI) a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit humanitarian organization that provides hunger relief, clean water, orphan care, medical aid, disaster relief and community development programs in the U.S. and around the world, the Breezy Point Coop provided a luncheon and raffles for members of the community.
And Broadwayworld was there to capture the event.
