Forte is a multicultural trio of tenors who wowed the nation while auditioning and performing during the eighth season of America’s Got Talent. The group consists of New York native Josh Page, Hana Ryu of South Korea and Sri Lankan tenor, Sean Panikkar. The members of Forte met in person merely days before they auditioned for AGT. All of the group’s rehearsals and meetings prior to meeting face-to-face were held online. Josh Page answered the call to musicianship, after randomly being pulled on stage by Josh Groban to duet during a performance at Madison Square Garden. Sean Panikkar never pictured himself with a career in opera. Prior to joining Forte, he was enrolled in the engineering program at the University of Michigan. Overtime, opera became a big part of Panikkar's life, and after college, the singer performed with several prestigious institutions, including the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera. Fernando Varela was discovered on YouTube and won “Born To Sing,"" a contest put on by the hit maker himself, David Foster. Varela's global performances span over thirty countries, including performances in Monte Carlo, Monaco, Canada and Washington, DC. Forte released a self-titled debut album, that features the lead track ""Caruso,"" ""The Prayer"", as well as several songs the group performed on the show including ""My Heart Will Go On,"" ""Unchained Melody,"" and ""Pie Jesu."" The group's latest release, The Future Classics, is their spin on ""the popular music of today"", including songs like ""Burn"", ""Collide"", and ""Free Fallin'"". The album's first single, ""Game of Thrones"", was inspired by the soundtrack of the HBO series of the same name. Since the theme had no lyrics, Josh Page adapted High Valyrian text from Game of Thrones and set it to the music composed by Ramin Djawadi. The song's music video was shot in just two days, became a top-five hit on YouTube's ""Just Released Music Videos"" list, and was shared by the official Game of Thrones Twitter account..
