Inspired by the popularity of the Three Tenors in the 1990s, Daniel Harte and Bill Hughes put their heads together with the idea of forming a trio of Irish tenors during the Cannes film festival, for the purpose of producing a television special. In 1999, The Irish Tenors: Live in Dublin debuted on PBS television in the United States. This PBS special catapulted them to international fame. PBS signed them on for yet another special, dubbed as "The Irish Tenors: Live in Belfast which aired in 2000.
With their natural Irish charm and superb vocal talent, they' have breathed new life in both traditional and contemporary songs which include “My Heart Will Go On” (from Titanic), “Fairytale Of New York”(previously recorded by Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues) and even Jimmy Kennedy’s “South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way)”.
