Tony Monaco is a Broadway song and dance man of Jewish, Irish, Italian decent whose amazing born-again Christian experience makes some of the major motion picture characters he's played pale by comparison. Born and raised on Manhattan's mean streets, Tony would ride the subway to the Paramount Theatre on Broadway to soak up Frank Sinatra and the Tommy Dorsey band. After the show he slipped his shoeshine box out from under his seat and beat it to 42nd street to dance on the corner for nickels and dimes like his hero Gene Kelly.

Dear Listener:
All these songs were written prior to 9/11.

“If You Were God,” “In A Moment,” and “Forgive Them, Father,” all seemed to take on a different meaning afterwards. But our recording session had been arranged in October, and with a heavy heart we assembled to present what had been inspired.

“A World of Peace, A World of Love” was written by our arranger Keith Droste many years ago for Pat Boone, but somehow never got recorded. It cried out for this time.

My son, Chris Monaco had painted the cover photo several years ago for a friend who was struggling with an illness and thankfully has recovered. It, too, seemed to symbolize the tragic time this world has experienced. I’m extremely proud to share his talent, and thankful his mother encouraged his study when he was a child.

My longtime collaborator Bob Corwin has sacrificed countless hours to transcribe the songs I sing to him, writing them down on paper. I’m forever indebted to him.

This album is dedicated to all those unsung heroes like yourself who with broken hearts pick up the rubble of your lives and like St. Paul “press on towards the goal” of the heavenly prize that awaits you.

In Hymn,
Tony Monaco
