The 2014 “America’s Got Talent” finalists and audience favorites, Sons of Serendip have released their debut studio recording, a self-titled compilation of the group’s most memorable performances on the wildly popular talent competition show.
In its first week out, Sons of Serendip claimed Billboard’s #4 Heatseeker spot, #14 Internet Album, and #94 Top Current Album, and the #1 Heatseeker position in the Northeast, and #2 in both Mountain and South Atlantic regions.
The classically trained quartet— Micah Christian (lead vocals); Kendall Ramseur (cello, vocals); Mason Morton (harp); and Cordaro Rodriguez (piano, vocals)— won fourth place and the hearts of fans and judges alike on “America's Got Talent” with their sumptuous, emotionally stirring orchestral and acoustic interpretations of modern and traditional pop classics, arranged with vocals, cello, harp and piano.
Sons of Serendip are sure to delight fans who have been waiting for studio recordings of the group’s AGT showstoppers, including their first audition selection “Somewhere Only We Know,” which not only introduced America to their poignant and remarkably lush sound but also garnered the group their first of many unanimous “yes” votes from the judges.
The album also includes “Wicked Games” which stood out as the group’s break-through performance on the show and “Bring Me to Life,” from their stirring appearance in the finals (complete track listing below).
The Sons of Serendip (SoS) are four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events came together in graduate school at Boston University and auditioned for “America's Got Talent.”
Micah Christian, a teacher from Randolph, MA and the lead singer for the group; pianist/vocalist Cordaro Rodriguez, an attorney from Charlotte, NC; Kendall Ramseur, a cellist and cello instructor from Charlotte, NC and harpist Mason Morton, a teacher from Atlanta. All have been playing their instruments since childhood.
