Paul Pitts has now sung over 5000 performances worldwide on seven continents to over one billion people through television, radio, recordings and personal appearances.

Pitts was featured soloist for the Concert of Peace in Belfast, Ireland. This brought praise from the President of the United States and the Queen of England.

Paul has performed at the Crystal Cathedral, Alamo Dome, TD Waterhouse Arena, Cypress Gardens and Opryland USA. Paul plans to fulfill a request to sing at the Vatican as well.

Paul Pitts has appeared on networks ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, TBN, and CBN. He will appear on the big screen in a movie starring talk show host Montel Williams and two-time Oscar winner Ben Kingsley.

Pitts has sung numerous operatic roles including: Don Jose (Carmen), Rodolfo (LaBoheme), Manrico (Il Trovatore), Lt. Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly), Florestan (Fidelio), Canio (Pagliacci), Cavardossi (Tosca), Calaf (Turandot), MacDuff (MacBeth). He has also performed the tenor roles in Beethoven’s Ninth, Handel’s Messiah and the Verdi Requiem. Pitts will also be performing the title role of Otello in New York this spring.

Nino Pantano, recently reviewing a performance of Pagliacci in New York, described Paul’s title role of Canio as the following:

Mr. Pitts has one of the most beautiful voices in existence today with impeccable diction and admirable declamatory skills. In short, he is the Canio of our time.

Norma Swain, president of the oldest classical music club in existence today and critic for the Harrisburg Pennsylvania Herald, after hearing Paul in the role of Calaf in Turandot said:

The riveting performance of tenor Paul Pitts enticed me to attend a second performance. His is one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.

Paul Pitts is being compared to many of the great tenors of days gone by. His powerful and energetic voice and thrilling performances have spellbound thousands. Paul sings with a compassion for people.

The St. Petersburg Times quoted Paul as saying:

If I can touch someone’s heart with the love of God, I will have lived out my purpose for living.

Paul Pitts can be described as the New World Class Tenor.
