Christian Stolte Sounds Like a Full Rock Star Singing This Hit by The Zombies

It turns out Mouch from Chicago Fire has a hidden talent: He can sing!

By Chris Phelan

Christian Stolte's portrayal of Randall "Mouch" McHolland has been revered by One Chicago fans, and for good reason. He's one of the most likable characters on Chicago Fire, consistently injecting the show with levity and much-appreciated comic relief.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 13 premiere of Chicago Fire Wednesday, September 25 at 9/8c on NBC

But who knew Mouch was also such a talented singer?

We're still unpacking a fan-made video of One Chicago stars showing off their vocal talents. In it we discovered Kara Killmer sweetly singing "Over the Rainbow," and now we've uncovered another hidden gem. As it turns out, the man behind Mouch gives quite the adorable performance of The Zombie's hit "This Will Be Our Year" in that same video! Check it out below, and make sure to begin at the 1:54 mark.

Watch Stolte's charismatic performance here.

Stolte — clearly between takes, judging by his Firehouse 51 garb — wastes no time serenading his colleague to the delight of everyone watching. (What we would give for a high-def, extended version of his performance.) Stolte's simple guitar strumming transforms "This Will Be Our Year" into something far more tender — yet decidedly less psychedelic and groovy — than the original version.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: We need a One Chicago  musical episode ASAP.

About "This Will Be Our Year" by The Zombies

Psychedelic rockers The Zombies have been around for a while — since 1961, to be exact — and have toured as recently as October 2023, proving their staying power can last through generations of music fans. "This Will Be Our Year" is arguably their greatest hit, and the song has enjoyed newfound popularity, being featured in TV shows like Mad Men and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
