Album Review

The vocal trio Three Graces — Sara Gettelfinger, Kelly Levesque, and Joy Kabanuck — is an act built for the big time, not an unreasonable goal at a time in the music business when, for instance, Josh Groban had the biggest-selling album of 2007. The idea here is to construct a sort of Spice Girls or Destiny's Child for the adult contemporary/contemporary classical charts. No less than seven producers have been enlisted in this effort. Mark Portmann is the main one, getting sole or partial credit on seven of the 11 tracks, but there are also contributions from such high-profile figures in the field as Desmond Child, Guy Roche, and Walter Afanasieff. These are guys accustomed to working with the likes of Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, and Barbra Streisand, among others. They are experts at coming up with soaring power ballads of the sort that wake up dozing businessmen in musicals by Andrew Lloyd Webber and warm the hearts of soccer moms accompanying their children to animated Walt Disney movies with scores by Alan Menken. For Three Graces, they have also applied the faux-classical approach of Groban and Sarah Brightman by having the trio sing in Italian, Spanish, and French in addition to English. Typically, however, they do not make it too hard for listeners by offering translated versions of old hits like Phil Collins' "Against All Odds" and Heart's "These Dreams." Gettelfinger, a Broadway veteran, Kabanuck, whose résumé boasts a batch of operas, and Levesque, who has duetted on-stage with Andrea Bocelli, all have good trained voices, of course, even if they seem to have been chosen for the group as much for their ability to look fetching in the off-the-shoulder gowns they sport on the album cover as for their singing. None, however, make a strong individual impression as a pop singer or even seem much invested in the material, even on the two songs for which the three receive co-writing credits with Jeff Cohen and Michael Ochs. But then, the songs, with their heavily clichéd lyrics and endless crescendos, demand more vocally in a technical sense than they do emotionally. A lot of money has been spent on this project (not the least of it on stylists and costume designers, who go uncredited, even though they are nearly as important as the musical producers), and either it's going to go platinum or the singers will go back to their individual stage careers.

Amazing

I was blown away by how amazing these three singers are. There was so much passion in their voices. Dile made me cry it was so amazing, and Requiem is also one of my favorites. Please please please take my word for it and download these songs....it is really worth it.

Beauty, Charm and Wisdom

I am a very loyal Il Divo fan and the Three Graces are right up there with them! I will say that I was expecting a more classical approach but most of the songs on this album turned out to have quite a pop-ish feel. The girls have stated themselves that they wanted to 'create a fusion of pop, opera and broadway.' I can say that in the voice category, they succeeded. If they were to record another album, they should try singing some more musical theatre or some classical songs...'Caruso' comes to mind. It seems that most of the time Kelly, the pop singer, dominates and you don't hear enough of Joy or Sara's voices. Joy is an amazingly accomplished opera singer and I know that if the producers allowed her to let loose, it would take this album to new heights. Not to say that this album isn't great...it totally is! All of the songs are good, but the best ones are 'Requiem', 'Dile' and the fantastic cover of Snow Patrol's 'Run.' My personal favorite is 'There Will Be a Time'...it has a strong message and a phenomenal 'glory note' from Joy about halfway through. Give the whole album a listen...you won't be disappointed! And congratulations to Joy on your recent marriage to David Miller of Il Divo! You're both amazing!

Breathtaking

I saw them last night along with Paul Potts, they were amazing! I am a total fan. The album is worth every penny.
