When Chris Mann crooned the Josh Groban hit “You Lift Me Up” in the final round of the second season of NBC’s The Voice, he left the room breathless, speechless, and panting for more. Coach Christina Aguilera burst into a shower of proud tears, while Cee Lo, in a pinch to describe what he’d just heard, defined Mann’s pipes as “incomparable.” It’s an apt description of the classically trained singer-songwriter, whose exemplary and flexile vocal skills have taken him far from his Kansas roots. Some singers are only suited for pop music, while others are adept at opera, but Chris Mann effortlessly meshes both into his favorite genre – classically based pop music.
With his debut album Roads, Mann rocketed up Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart while straddling the Top Five on the Classical Chart, a feat not accomplished since Beethoven’s White Album. He’s also serenaded the President and First Lady, landed his own PBS special, and recorded a top-selling holiday EP, Home for Christmas. Most importantly, he’s made opera and classical music cool for younger audiences while giving pop music an extra dose of grace. Live, he performs a wild-card set of modern hits, original songs, and arias, effortlessly weaving works such as “Ave Maria,” Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida,” Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind,” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” into a seamless sonic tapestry.

####Old National Centre Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’ growing population of Freemasons. The building has seen been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
