Great Voices Sing John Denver earns

Special Jury Prize at
2013 Fort Lauderdale International

Film Festival!


"Great Voices Sing John Denver" AVAILABLE, Tuesday, June 11, 2013


Great Voices Sing John Denver was inspired over a dinner conversation by legendary producer Milt Okun's wife, Rosemary. From her humble suggestion, this fabulous collection was born. It's extraordinary! Check out the sizzle reel above. CDK Productions is proud to have been part of this amazing project. John Denver and opera fans alike have something to look forward to as Kenneth Shapiro takes you behind the scenes of the creation of the new CD and discover why each artist chose the song that they sing and what John Denver's music did for each artist. The documentary captures the essence of their actual recording sessions. Legendary music producer, Milton Okun along with arranger and conductor Lee Holdridge, bring some of the most famous names in opera to sing John Denver's famous hit songs. Featured artists include Placido Domingo, Danielle de Niese, Matthew Polenzani (singing in English and Italian) Patricia Racette, Rene Pape, Nathan Gunn, Dolora Zajick, Thomas Hampson, Rod Gilfry, Denyce Graves, Shenyang (singing in English and Mandarian) Daniel Montenegro, Placido Domingo Jr., Stuart Skelton and Barbara Padilla. Each artist got to select the song they wanted and share with us their reasons.
