and Montserrat Cabellé by releasing their rendition of Barcelona.

The single is the latest project from the celebrated crossover artist Angela
Hench who rose to international acclaim through her series of moving operatic performances. To date, the artist has performed across the Croswell Opera House, Opera MODO, The Dio Theatre, and beyond.
