Yanni Voices Review

Every now and then I will vary off my usual blog topic and today is one of them. I wanted to write about a CD I’ve been listening to.

Yes, it’s Yanni…. NOT the typical CD I would buy:-) Everyone knows Yanni for his new age, classic melodies, but after 22 years, he decided to add lyrics. Yanni discovered four singers – Nathan Pacheco, Ender Thomas, Leslie Mills and Chloe. He and his producer turned them loose, encouraging the four to write lyrics for the songs that moved them most. He calls it Yanni Voices.

At the blog conference, Blissdom, we got to see a screening of the live show and two of the singers came out to meet us!

You might have remembered the story of the “Hot Latin Guy’s Assets” that Angie wrote! LOL! If you didn’t… you have to read the story about how I made her stand in line to meet these guys:-) It will crack you up!! Well, after listening to their music in more detail, I’m very happy I forced her to stand in line.

They are not only hot, but ultra talented. I told Angie they would be famous someday and I still stand by that. Nathan, Leslie, Ender and Chloe are incredible. This is the type of music you are truly moved by. It’s not only beautiful, but so relaxing. I have it on all the time when I’m working now.

I think Leslie is one of my latest girl crushes! ha. Her voice is to die for. Just listen to the song “Before the Night Ends” here and you’ll see what I mean. I even sent her a message via Twitter telling her that she was my new favorite artist. So unlike me! I’m not really into musicians that aren’t John Mayer:-) I was happily surprised to get a reply back from Leslie! Now she really is up there with John. Ha!

Here’s the good part!

One 2 One Network, who was kind enough to send me the CD, is giving one away to you!!

Just leave a comment and you’re entered to win! I’ll pick a random winner on Friday.

    Hi Amy, I have been a huge Yanni fan since Linda Evans was on Oprah and told the world she and Yanni were dating, he played one of my favorites “Reflection of Passion”. I have been to every Yanni concert in the bay area since, and I’m going to the Voices Concert on June 25, 2009. I joined his fan club so I already have the album. It is the most beautiful work Yanni has done to date. Thanks for supporting Yanni Voices. From His #1 Fan from San Jose CA Michelle

  3. The first concert my husband took me to was Yanni, we were just talking about that the other day. I would love to win this as a gift for him. Thank you for the review!

    This looks like a great cd to listen to! Thanks for the opportunity to get this cd.

  7. Amy, I’ve loved Yanni ever since he appeared on Regis and Kathy Lee back when I was expecting my first child. In My Time was that first CD. I’ve bought three our four others since but I always go back to that first one.

    I will have to search iTunes and listen to some samples of this CD.

    Thanks for the heads up on this!!!
