ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Daniel Rodriguez chose to follow his passion and dreams after the tragedy of 9/11. The former NYPD officer is now an international recording artist. He helped bring the country an uplifting spirit of promise and hope with his stirring rendition of “God Bless America” after the September 11th terrorist attacks and became known to many as the “singing policeman. “ Being a member of the NYPD and their prestigious ceremonial unit as official singer gave him a great sense of pride and was rewarding. Witnessing first hand the tragedy of 9/11 made him realize how fleeting life is.

Daniel was immediately signed by Manhattan Records, a division of EMI, after his stellar performance of “God Bless America” at Yankee Stadium’s Prayer for America thrust him upon the world stage. The singer known as America’s Beloved Tenor now has ten CDs to his credit.

Daniel releases his first Christmas album in November 2014 “A Glorious Christmas.” “I have always wanted to record a Christmas CD and make it as unique in style and as authentic to Daniel Rodriguez as possible. I believe I have achieved both. In “A Glorious Christmas” fans will hear some of the big vocal performances that have become synonymous with America’s Beloved Tenor. With this CD I wanted to also showcase the raw offering I have as an artist.”

“I chose “I Believe” to record as a duet with my wife, soprano and international recording artist, Marla Kavanaugh. We both decided that we needed to offer a song of inspiration for the difficult times we are all facing as a Global Community. “I Believe” was the perfect choice as it lends itself to any occasion and the sentiment is exactly what Marla and I feel as world artists with a tendency toward optimism. The opening line is ‘One day I'll hear the laugh of children, in a world where war has been banned’ and continues with ‘One day I'll see men of all colors, sharing words of love and devotion.’ Marla and I hope these sentiments will spread during this holiday season and beyond.

The second duet is with pop diva and charting artist Shelea Frazier. Shelea is a consummate professional that brings an amazing vocal performance to the pop selection "Christmas Day.” I am delighted to be working with such a bright talent who has come so far in the music industry. "Christmas Day" is a fun holiday piece that truly shows my lighter side and Shelea's pop style is the perfect compliment to my "pop tenor" approach.

Four the third duet on “A Glorious Christmas” I was thrilled to be able to sing a bilingual duet with my dearest friend and 2 time Grammy nominee, Karina Nuvo. This soulful Latin diva brought new life to the well known holiday hymn "Silent Night." When creating a Christmas CD probably the most difficult thing to do is to create something new. This timeless classic has been recorded in every genre imaginable, for us to come up with a new offering was a challenge. Karina helped me to do just that, "Silent Night" has a new sound and wonderful harmonies that can only be described as straight from the heart. I had to offer a bilingual song or I would be disowned by my parents and hence, "Silent Night” is offered in Spanish and English.”

"Where Else Would A Lamb Be Born" is a tenor’s dream and spoke to me from the first time I heard it. The words bring to life the idea of the Lamb of God and the birth of Christ when in the song it states ‘A bed of straw became his cradle, embracing God in human form. One would expect more than a stable, but where else would a lamb be born.’ The song captured my heart and so it became a proud part of "A Glorious Christmas"

“I recorded my first Latin CD, “Por Ti Volare,” in 2013 to honor my heritage, and I’m glad we included an English/Spanish version of “Silent Night” on ‘A Glorious Christmas.”

Daniel has tours scheduled for 2014 and 2015 in Holland, New Zealand, and the US. In 2015 Daniel will return for the third time to Hawaii for 9/11. His "Salute to the Fallen" continues to be part of the Commemoration Ceremonies at Pearl Harbor.


“If you are true to your passions and work hard for the things that are important in life, like caring, kindness, friendship, faith and family then wherever you wind up you will be a success and, to those you love and those who love you, you will be famous.” – Daniel Rodriguez.
