Comprising classically trained singers American soprano Ashley Marie Slater and Brazilian tenor Luperci de Souza, crossover vocal duo Classique has performed on stages all over the world, from South America to Europe.
Both admirers of Italian-American actor and singer Mario Lanza, the pair recently decided to record his song "Be My Love" and release it as a single. Originally written for Lanza, who sang it with Kathryn Grayson in the 1950 film The Toast of New Orleans, Classique now covers the song in their own unique style, reviving it for a whole new audience by adding in orchestral elements that beautifully complement their pristine voices.
It was also this song that inspired the duo to record their soon-to-be-released album, which they are currently working on with producer Ben Christenson. "We really feel that the music from this era deserves to be heard and loved once more by today’s listeners;" Classique explained, "the music that we’ve chosen for our debut album contains some beloved classics as well as a few surprises that we hope you’ll be excited to get reacquainted with, or will be hearing for the first time as our new interpretation."
"Be My Love" is available to stream and download now. Listen to it via SoundCloud here.
