Michael Amante is affectionately known as the "People's Tenor.” He has been crowned the "Prince of High C's" for his remarkable ability to hit and sustain with ease, one of the highest notes of a tenor’s voice. With Michael’s long history of singing popular Rock and Gospel music, coupled with extensive classical Bel-Canto training, he is able to sing even higher with a strength and mastery rarely heard anywhere in the world.  Being able to produce these notes consistently requires not only talent, but skilled use of technique.
