Christopher McGinnis is the youngest featured pianist with the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra at the Jazz Standard in New York City. Some of his performances herald from such landmarks as Central Park, Macys Herald Square, and Times Square.
Fourteen year old musical prodigy Christopher McGinnis first appeared here back in February 2011.
Since that time, he has continued to advance his career writing additional hit songs adding to his ever growing collection of originals.
Christopher is an amazing piano prodigy, prolific songwriter, and soulful singer with movie star looks. This young talented teen has everything in the making for HUGE success. His command on the piano as he goes from playing Latin, Blues, Jazz, Classical to Pop is just an amazing sight to witness.
NEW SINGLE ANNOUNCED!
Christopher released his new single “I Played The Fool”, which demonstrates his ability to write top 40 hits with an identifiable hook. I personally purchased it only yesterday and have to tell you that “This song rocks”!!!
Last February I introduced to this site, a young musical prodigy named Christopher McGinnis. Christopher has been making his mark not only as a outstanding pianist, organist, performer and actor, but as an entertainer and song writer who has written three original Pop tunes, “Dreams Are Made Of”, Time Waits For No One”, and “The War Song an American Hero” which are all available for purchase on I-Tunes and Amazon.
Christopher has been very busy since that first article was published, performing all around the New York area. Christopher, who turns fourteen on the 15th of this month, has already accomplished what many professional musicians who have been in the business for years have not, by performing Three Times at Madison Square Garden.
While a smaller version of this article appeared in the side bar of this blog previously for a short time, I felt it necessary to give Christopher the recognition he deserved by publishing the extended version here today.
With this Sunday being the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 in the United States. I felt that Chris’s song entitled “The War Song an American Hero” was exactly what was needed to commemorate this day.
Recently Christopher performed his original song “THE WAR SONG AN AMERICAN HERO” at the WWII Veterans Concert 2011.
Chris sang and performed his song for some of the US Military’s top brass during this event!
No only does his song fit this weeks memorial theme but it honors every fallen solder who has ever fought for his country.
Thanks you Christopher for this song and for your dedication and desire to share your gift with all of us today!
