Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
If there is a more remarkable figure in the music world than Ronan Tynan, would you please stand up? Athlete, doctor, and world-class singer, Tynan, who found international fame as a member of the popular trio, the Irish Tenors, makes his solo debut with My Life Belongs to You. Released along with his autobiography, My Life 'till Now, the album is yet another striking achievement from this truly unstoppable talent. Tynan was born with a lower- limb disability, and his legs were later amputated. Recovering quickly, he became a champion athlete, piling up 18 gold medals and 14 world records in international disabled athletes' events in the early 1980s. Not content with that...

If there is a more remarkable figure in the music world than Ronan Tynan, would you please stand up? Athlete, doctor, and world-class singer, Tynan, who found international fame as a member of the popular trio, the Irish Tenors, makes his solo debut with My Life Belongs to You. Released along with his autobiography, My Life 'till Now, the album is yet another striking achievement from this truly unstoppable talent. Tynan was born with a lower- limb disability, and his legs were later amputated. Recovering quickly, he became a champion athlete, piling up 18 gold medals and 14 world records in international disabled athletes' events in the early 1980s. Not content with that success, Tynan went on to earn an M.D., specializing in sports injuries, and started to study singing in 1992. Astonishingly, little more than a year later, he won in quick succession a series of prominent vocal competitions, culminating with the International Operatic Singing Competition in Maumarde, France. My Life Belongs to You features Tynan in a program of songs in the Mario Lanza mold -- 15 tenor favorites from around the world, with an a cappella "God Bless America" recorded in New York a month after 9/11 as a bonus add-on. There are Broadway hits: "If I loved You" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel and "Beloved" from Kismet. There are Italian classics: "Sorrento" and "Funiculi, funicula," as well as "La vie en rose" and the British Isles' "Roses of Picardy." Sacred songs make an appearance, too, with "The Holy City" and Schubert's "Ave Maria." Taken together, it's a lyrical and romantic collection that fits Tynan's talents to a tee. His voice is full and rich, but thanks to his late start at vocal training, it retains a charming freshness, and the popular songs here don't suffer, as they sometimes do, from the overbearing sound of a fully developed operatic voice. So what's the latest challenge for this indefatigable Irishman? Horse racing! He's already competed in the Dublin Horse Show, and judging from Tynan's past, that's only the beginning.

    Simply moving...

    The first time I heard Ronan Tynan was at Yankee Stadium the first game back after the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. His rendition of God Bless America is the greatest version I have heard of all time, hands down. To this day, he still comes in and sings it during select games, and still to this day, it brings a tear to my eye when I hear him sing it. If you haven't heard his version, listen to it. Remember that day. And if it doesn't bring a tear to your eye, then there is something wrong with you. :-)

    Uplifting

    I first heard about Ronan Tynan when he did a radio interview on BBS. It was about 3:00-4:00AM my time here, I live in Barbados, and I was truly inspired an awed by his voice as well as his accomplishments. "Heavenly and inspiring". His renditions move me to sweet tears and a serenity only great music could instill.

    And Our Lives Belong to you

    From Dr. Tynan's first appearance on PBS in the concert from Dublin, he has captured my heart. He sings with such passion and compassion and tenderness and unabashed love, and performs with such joy and pride of accomplishment, that one can't help but share in and return all that emotion. There are not enough superlatives to do this album justice. Listen for yourself -- you'll be very glad you did!
