About Mark Vincent
Singing from the age of 15, Mark Vincent has gone on to become one of Australia’s most beloved tenors, having released eight consecutive #1 ARIA Classical Crossover Albums, and having earned accolades both nationally and internationally.
Vincent’s last album, A Tribute To Mario Lanza, contains the ground breaking ‘virtual duet’ of ‘Because You’re Mine’ with the Hollywood legend. The ‘duet’ made headlines and received the patronage of Mario Lanza’s daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recoding of the ‘virtual duet’ and said, “I’m pleased to allow my father’s recoded voice to be joined on this historic recording by the exciting young tenor, Mark Vincent.”
Like Lanza, Mark grew up in a family with strong Italian traditions and heritage and has always been inspired by the legendary Italian tenor.
Tribute debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and at #1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Charts. The album went on to be the highest selling ARIA Classical Crossover album of 2017.
Turning his focus to Musical Theatre, in 2014 Mark Vincent made his debut in the Australian production of Dirty Dancing, which played 130 shows around the country. In June 2016, Dame Julie Andrews, DBE cast Mark in her production of My Fair Lady, which toured nationally with Opera Australia to rave reviews.
Vincent concluded a stellar 2017 with a national headline tour, followed by a sold-out tour of the UK with international soprano Katherine Jenkins, performing in iconic venues including Royal Albert Hall in London.
This year has seen Mark perform in Ireland with Tommy Fleming whilst preparing his debut album The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year for the festive season. This will be Mark’s ninth album… an impressive feat for a recently turned 25-year-old.
