ARE YOU PLANNING A WEDDING AND SEEKING AN EXPERIENCED VOCALIST TO SING AT THE CEREMONY?
HAS A LOVED ONE RECENTLY PASSED AWAY AND YOU WANT TO HONOR THEIR MEMORY THROUGH MUSIC?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SURPRISE A LOVED ONE WITH A SPECIAL PERFORMANCE FROM A "JERSEY BOY"?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I'd love to help!
No matter what your request is; whether it’s for a wedding, funeral, fundraiser, proposal, birthday, etc., I would love to sing any song(s) of your choosing or make recommendations of my own to make your request or event as personal and special as possible.
I've been a wedding and funeral cantor for the past 20+ years at parishes such as Old St. Patrick's Church, St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, and Our Lady of Ransom Catholic Church. Although I've spent a lot of time performing in a traditional setting, I also have extensive experience with singing genres such as pop, rock, classical, country, jazz & musical theatre.
Below are a few video and audio performance clips so you can get a sense of my voice:

"Nick Cosgrove was an excellent choice for my wedding! He made our ceremony that much more special. Not only does he have an amazing voice, he is very professional and easy to work with. Planning a wedding during a pandemic was not easy, and we had to a lot of last minute changes, but he was more than willing to work with us as well as the church to make our day exactly what we envisioned. His rendition of Ave Maria is one of the best I have ever heard. I highly recommend him for any wedding!" -Dianna F.
"The first word that comes to mind when you hear Nick sing is "captivating." My wife and I first met Nick in Chicago while he was singing for a mass and from that moment we knew we wanted him to be the cantor at our wedding. Nick was very responsive and super easy to work with. He and the musical director coordinated everything at the church and always asked for our input on his suggestions which were always spot on. Nick's voice filled the Church beautifully and made our special day that much more memorable. Guests were commenting how awesome the music was. I would highly recommend Nick." -Eric L.
"I cannot recommend Nick enough as a wedding cantor. Nick sang at our wedding at Old St. Patrick’s and it was absolutely incredible. Nick was extremely kind and accommodating beforehand, and went out of his way to be in Chicago for our wedding weekend. It is hard to put into words how special Nick's singing was to us was at our wedding; his voice and the music was my favorite aspect of our ceremony! His voice is stunning, and he brought so much emotion and richness to our mass. My husband and I were incredibly moved by his singing, (especially our communion song You Raise Me Up, everyone was in tears!) and felt so grateful he was able to be a part of our ceremony. He performs with such grace and emotion that our guests were also extremely touched by his performance. I would recommend Nick to truly everyone looking for a wedding cantor. He made us feel so special and added so much to our entire day. Weeks later and we (and guests) are still talking about how amazing he was! Thank you again to Nick for making our day so special!" -Abbie R.
"It’s really difficult to put into words the beauty and talent that Nick possesses as a singer, as well as a human being. Nick sang at our wedding ceremony in July 2015, and I still remember the exact feeling that overcame me the moment he sang the first few notes of “The Prayer.” I don’t remember a lot of details from the crazy pace of the day, but one thing I will never forget is that moment in church next to my husband with chills on my arms and my jaw dropped. Not only is his voice raw and beautiful, it will forever take me to that place and time, and we’re so grateful for that. I have heard Nick sing many times before, but there was something truly special about that moment that I will never forget. To put it simply - you never want the song to end when you’re in the presence of Nick Cosgrove, and neither did any of our guests. To this day we still get asked, “who WAS that wedding singer?” almost five years later. In addition to his talent, his demeanor is sweet and calm, and his professionalism is unmatched. I can say with full confidence that he will be undoubtedly one of the most memorable parts of your wedding day." -Dina B.
"Nick is so incredibly talented! He sang at our wedding in June and stole the show. We have gotten so many compliments on our amazing cantor. Nick was easy to work with, kind and professional. We are so grateful Nick was available for our big day!" -Jen R.
”I was looking to create a beautiful celebration of my mom’s life. I knew that would need to include an exceptional singer. I was lucky to find Nick Cosgrove. He worked on all the details with me. His voice is spectacular. I got so many compliments. A genuinely nice young man and very caring." -Jack F.
