Both their debut album and their new holiday CD have gone gold in Canada and are being released worldwide.

The talented singers have received rave reviews and standing ovations from the Tel Aviv Opera house where they shared the stage with Andrea Bocelli; to Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Coliseum and New York’s Madison Square Gardens with the David Foster and Friends Hitman Tour; to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre where they headlined at ONE NIGHT LIVE with Sting and Sheryl Crow; to Sarah McLachlan’s Summer Sessions concert with Neil Young.
