There's no denying the recognisable voice of Mark Vincent, who is warming up his vocals for an upcoming Christmas show (yes, it's almost that time of year again).

The concert will be held on December 22 at 2pm at Sutherland Entertainment Centre.

It is presented by Sylvania BMW, Fruitezy Fruit Market Westfield Miranda, Kareela Groccer and Doltone House.

Vincent's special guest will be 2013 Winner of The Voice, Harrison Craig.

Vincent recently returned from Belfast, where he performed at BBC 'Proms in the Park' alongside Susan Boyle, who rose to fame after appearing as a contestant on the third series of Britain's Got Talent, singing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables.

He and Boyle sang a duet, A Million Dreams.

The talented singer was also in Rome where he performed with Katherine Jenkins in a castle, and is now in the works of his national tour with Tommy Fleming.

Singing from the age of 15, Vincent has gone on to become one of Australia's most beloved tenors, having released nine consecutive #1 ARIA Classical Crossover Albums, and having earned accolades both nationally and internationally.

Vincent's last album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, contains the ground breaking 'virtual duet' of 'Because You're Mine' with the Hollywood legend.

The duet made headlines and received the patronage of Mario Lanza's daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recoding of the virtual duet.

The tribute debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and at #1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Charts.

Vincent went on to be the highest selling ARIA Classical Crossover album of 2017.

Turning his focus to musical theatre in 2014, he made his debut in the Australian production of Dirty Dancing, which played 130 shows around the country.

In 2016, Dame Julie Andrews cast Mark in her production of My Fair Lady, which toured nationally with Opera Australia with rave reviews.

Vincent concluded a stellar 2017 with a national headline tour, followed by a sold-out tour of the UK with international soprano Katherine Jenkins, performing in iconic venues including Royal Albert Hall in London.

The year of 2018 saw Mark perform in Ireland with Tommy Fleming while preparing his debut album The Most Wonderful Time of the Year for the festive season.

Vincent also competed as one of the finalists in the national selection show Eurovision - Australia Decides in February 2019, which was broadcasted live on SBS with his song This is Not the End.

This year is gearing up to be his biggest yet with many exclusive performances and tours across the globe. This will include performing in the largest and historic castle in Rome (Castello Orsini Odescalchi) as special guest for international soprano Katherine Jenkins.

"It has been a very exciting year," he told the Leader.

"Sharing the stage with artists like Katherine and Susan has opened up so many international opportunities.

"I always like to surprise people and give it my best show I can possibly do.

"Sutherland Shire is very close to my heart as it's my home town. I always believe the shire has so much potential especially for the arts.

"Doing my Christmas show at Sutherland has become tradition and I love performing at Sutherland Entertainment Centre every year.

"Harrison is [also] very excited to be performing in the shire. I told him, it's 'Gods Country'."
