Manny TorresJuly 18th in the Toyota Performance Corner
Manny Torres is a Chicago based singer-songwriter that lives for the passion filled experience of his live shows! His music brings the secular and the sacred into conversation with each other, as he writes and covers songs that demonstrate the beauty, pain, and hope that comprise the human experience as a whole. Manny found National fame as one of the top 14 finalists on American Idol’s final season on Fox. Soon after his return home to Chicago, he was diagnosed with cancer and was forced to hit pause on his music career as he fought through 4 cycles of Chemo. In mid-2018, he emerged completely cancer free and has since released 4 singles and continued to perform live nationally, including a partnership with Choose Chicago to represent the city for the Year of Chicago Music in 2020. His latest release, "I Still Stand" dropped at the end of January and was selected as Vocalo Radio's Top 4 for In Rotation! Street.
