I (heart) Chris Mann

(I wrote this post a while back and scrapped it because I sound like a crazy person um school girl gushing about her latest crush reasonable, mature adult.  Yep, that’s me; reasonable and mature.  But I pulled it back out of the trash because Chris listed me in his FollowFriday list on Twitter, so I figured I’d share the love.)   

I’m a music snob. I admit it. I don’t usually listen to a lot pop music. (I don’t even know what’s poplular, to be honest.)  I don’t watch American Idol(gasp!).  My ipod is full of broadway and classical and opera.  But there is one thing that I’ll always fall for: a good, smooth sound.

A few weeks ago 5 Minutes for Mom had their 2009 Ultimate Blog Party and they had several parties with live video so that folks could join in the fun from home.  Chris Mann, a new recording artist with an album coming out this fall, performed a few of his songs at the shin-dig at Heather Spohr’s house.  I didn’t get to watch it live because we were on the road, but I did watch it later on thissite.  The sound isn’t perfect, but you can definitely tell that he has an amazing voice (AND he’s a Southerner AND he can sing opera!).  Oh, and, yeah…he’s fun to look at, too! 🙂

If you want to hear a more polished version of some of his songs(my fave is “On a Night Like This”), check out www.chrismannmusic.com or his Facebook Fan Page.  He also twitters and blogs.  He’s pretty funny.  You should check him out.  He’s gonna be big, folks!  And if you don’t click one of the million links I gave you in this post, then one day you’re gonna be sorry you didn’t listen to me.
