His personal story of triumph and his impassioned singing captivates and inspires audiences nationwide. A natural-born storyteller and gifted with humor, Ronan\u2019s inspiring message about overcoming obstacles and living life to the fullest promotes ways to reach new heights both professionally and personally.\r\n\r\nCorey LaJoie is a third-generation racer and a very well-known name in the world of motorsports. His grandfather, Don LaJoie, is a member of the New England Auto Racing Hall of Fame alongside his father, Randy LaJoie, who won Xfinity Series Championships in both 1996 and 1997.\r\n\r\nRonan Tynan faced numerous challenges throughout his well-documented life, has persevered with enormous passion and determination. Introduced to international audiences as a member of the Irish Tenors, Tynan quickly became known for his unique voice and irresistible appeal. Tynan\u2019s singing offered the gentlest consolation at the funeral of President Ronald Reagan in the summer of 2004, when an international TV audience of more than 35 million heard him sing at the personal invitation of Nancy Reagan.\r\n\r\nRonan is also famous for his performances of \u201cGod Bless America\u201d at Yankee Stadium during the seventh-inning stretch. His voice also brightened the 80th birthday celebration of former President George H.W. Bush in the summer of 2004 in Houston. In the spring of 2005, Ronan\u2019s self-titled album debuted #2 on Billboard\u2019s Classical Crossover Chart and the World Album Chart.\r\n\r\nRonan sang at the White House Governors' Ball at the invitation of President and Mrs. Bush in February 2007, and in 2008 returned to the White House to sing at the St. Patrick's Day Reception attended by members of the U.S. and Irish governments. He performed during the Concert of Hope prior to the Papal Mass at Yankee Stadium in April 2008.\r\n\r\nThough Ronan enjoyed singing as a boy, he did not seriously consider formal voice study until he was 33, when he was well into his residency as a physician. Born with lower limb disability that threatened to sideline him throughout his childhood, Tynan was still \u201cas wild as a March hare\u201d when he was a growing boy, riding horses and racing motorcycles. When he was twenty, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after an auto accident caused serious complications. Just weeks after the operation, he was climbing up the steps of his college dorm, and within a year, he was winning gold medals in the Paralympics as a multitalented athlete. Between 1981 and 1984, Tynan amassed eighteen gold medals and fourteen world records of which he still holds nine. Tynan became the first disabled person ever admitted to the National College of Physical Education. He later became a full-fledged medical doctor, specializing in orthopedic sports injuries, with a degree from prestigious Trinity College.
