A Tribute to Mario Lanza starring Daniel Rodriguez

His voice thrilled – and helped to heal – a nation.  As an official singer for the NYPD Ceremonial Unit, Daniel Rodriguez became a household name in the United States when he performed “God Bless America” at the September 23, 2001 “Prayer For America” concert honoring the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks. 

Rodriguez, who cites Mario Lanza as a major influence, pays tribute to the late tenor in this varied program of spiritual and popular tunes, including “With a Song In My Heart,” “Because,” “I’ll Walk With God,” “Ave Maria,” “If I Loved You” and many more.
