His new CD Roads has a huge assortment of songs like Willie Nelson's "Always on My Mind" and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now". He also includes great classical songs such as "Ave Maria" and "The Blowers Daughter" by Damien Rice. "The Blowers Daughter even has an appearance from Christina Aguilera!!! Mann also co-wrote two songs on the CD, "Coure" and "Falling". "Coure" is based on Bach's "Air on a G String". Very beautifully written.
Mann was honored to be on "The Voice" and picked for Christina Aguileras team! He made it to the final rounds on Christina's team. The following is quoted from Chris Mann's website, www.chrismannmusic.com. After the series ended, Mann signed with Faircraft—serendipitous in that back in 1998 Fair, then senior vice-president of A&R for RCA Records, had signed, oversaw and supervised Aguilera’s career. The decision was a no-brainer for both Mann and Fair. “Ron is a believer,” says Chris. “He has a passion for classical crossover music—he gets it.” Together, they immediately began conceptualizing of the album project—or projects, including a Wal-mart exclusive Christmas EP.

My Take:I wasn't really sure what to think of Chris Mann at first. I very rarely get to watch any episodes of "The Voice", so I had never heard him sing. I don't USUALLY listen to classical music, unless I am trying to relax enough to fall asleep...but I do love classical music....it just is so relaxing that it ends up putting me to sleep.
As I sat here at my computer though and listened to his CD, I have to say, I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed listening to him. His voice is soft and soothing. I loved that there were songs on his CD that I was familiar with and sung in his nice, smooth voice.
I also played the CD for my husband who typically does not like classical music. He also really enjoyed it.
I would give this CD as well as Chris Mann two thumbs up! I am looking forward to putting his music on my iPod and listening more frequently....to sleep....and even not to sleep! :-)
*I was given the download of this CD in exchange for my honest opinion of the CD.*
I was given the awesome opportunity to review a brand new show that will be on The Hub TV Network! The premier of Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-lot, showed on Saturday, June 2nd on the Hub. In the package that I was provided, I got an episode to show my house full of kids, activity sheets with stickers, crayons, pencils, notepads and game ideas and recipe ideas for the party.
First we all watched the episode. There were 7 kids here total, ranging from the age of 4 to 13.
Then we played one of their games that was given in the pamphlet. The pillows are clouds! :-)
They had a lot of fun!!! Lots of giggles and lots of noise!!
Then the younger ones wanted to do the papers that were sent. There were coloring pages, word searches, and other fun games.
We had a really great time. Even my 13 year old BOY loved it. He has always loved Care Bears though. The 12 year old boy that was here wasn't sure about it though...he thought it was for littler people, but he still seemed eng…
