“…a strong appealing voice [Joe Mancuso] that is always in-tune…and always swings.”  – Scott Yanow, Jazz Author/Writer

Voices for the MS Cure is a Multiple Sclerosis benefit for the Gateway Chapter; an extension of Voices of St. Louis started by Joe Mancuso and Charles Glenn, who lives with MS.

Renowned and award-winning male vocalists, Charles Glenn and Joe Mancuso are highly regarded as virtuoso jazz artists.  Both have earned critical and popular acclaim for their interpretations — Glenn for his unforgettable groove, range, and scatting; Mancuso for his powerful, dynamic syncopation, and swing.

National anthem singer for the St. Louis Blues, Charles Glenn has been a member of the Grammy-Award winning group The Fifth Dimension. The son of an accomplished opera singer, he continues to accumulate honors including an Emmy for KETCs You Deserve 9,” the Judy Award for Passing Strange,” and a large prize on NBC’s singing competition “The Winner Is.”  He just returned from a gospel festival abroad, and has opened for Dave Koz, Kenny Loggins, Josh Stone, Smokey Robinson and more.

Joe Mancuso has proven himself one of the most impressive overall musicians in St. Louis, receiving awards for Best Album 2014, Best Musical Act 2014, and Best Vocalist 2012 by the Riverfront Times (RFT) with multiple festival performances to his credit [Mel Bay Jazz Festival, Whitaker Music Festival, U City Jazz Festival, Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival].  His sophomore CD is due for release soon, and he performs well over 100 shows each year.
