ACCLAIMED CANADIAN MUSICIAN LAUNCHES SONG OF THE ANGELS
INTERNATIONALLY - Following performances in Australia, Costa Rica, Kenya, Peru, Nepal, India, Philippines and Canada, Singer/Songwriter Christopher Barran launches CD entitled Song of the Angels.
Christopher co-produced his ethnically diverse, World Inspired album with Michael Vail Blum (multi platinum awarded producer/engineer for Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kenny Loggins, Peter Cetera, Julian Lennon, Meridith Brooks, Pink Floyd), at Titan Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
Nominated most outstanding vocalist, Christopher graduated with honors from Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA and studied with world renowned opera/classical voice instructor Blaine Chapmen in Calgary, AB, Canada.
He recently made his professional debut into musical theatre, playing the role of "Merab", in the acclaimed Elton John/Tim Rice Broadway musical AIDA.
In addition to his collection of World Inspired original compositions, Christopher has also performed and recorded Italian and English opera, classical, heavy metal, folk and negro spirituals as well as most genres of contemporary music. He has recorded previous solo albums and has sung on numerous CD projects.
Christopher has appeared on many international television and radio programs, has received extensive newspaper coverage and has performed at the Canadian Embassy in Manila, Philippines.
He shared his music weekly at convalescent and children hospitals and prisons as co-director of the Agape Road Show Ministry. (Agape is a trans-denominational spiritual center/community in Los Angeles under the direction of Michael Beckwith, from the acclaimed movie The Secret.)
Christopher recently performed the first international Road Shows in Costa Rica, Canada and the Philippines representing Agape.
His music has been likened to that of a modern day Cat Stevens and Disney soundtracks with Yanni esc world music arrangements; the great power, range and clarity in his voice is reminiscent of Jon Anderson of Yes and Steve Perry of Journey.
