With a one-time only performance for its sold-out world premiere at the 6,300-seat Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, this 2-disc recording recreates the magic of Loving the Silent Tears: The Musical and will continue to enchant audiences all over the world with soaring ballads (“Singing Praise”), lively songs (“All Love, All Forgive”) and rousing anthems (“Take Each Other’s Hand”).
Directed by Tony nominee Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson’s and Madonna’s world tours) and choreographed by Emmy winner Bonnie Story (High School Musical 1,2,3), the cast and creatives comprised an impressive team with over two dozen Academy, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Awards. Together, they transformed the profound verses in Supreme Master Ching Hai’s “Silent Tears” into a musical sensation that takes listeners across 6 continents. As MTV noted, the composers are “titans in their musical fields” with Jorge Calandrelli (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Al Kasha (The Poseidon Adventure), Doug Katsaros (Footloose), Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls), Don Pippin (Oliver!), Nan Schwartz (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and David Shire (Saturday Night Fever).
Loving the Silent Tears explores humanity’s universal search for inner peace through superb acting by Patti Cohenour (Joy), Luke Eberl (Pete) and Junior Case (Conductor). The phenomenal vocals of music legends and international pop stars representing the world’s glorious cultures include Camellia Abou-Odah (Arab), Flo Ankah (French), Black Uhuru (Jamaican), Liz Callaway (Australian), Debbie Gravitte (American), Hồ Quỳnh Hương (Vietnamese), Mark Janicello (Italian), Brian Joo (Korean), Liel Kolet (Israeli), Kiril Kulish (Russian), Katie McMahon (Irish), Heather Park (Korean), Fabiana Passoni (Brazilian), Siavash Shams (Persian), Jon Secada (Cuban), Kay Tse (Chinese) and Jody Watley (African).
