Wake up sleeping iMac remotely

I want to be able to wake up my mac and possibly launch iTunes from my phone or iPad (on my home network or not doesn't matter).

I have two Apple TV's one is Hard Wired to the iMac and one is wireless on the network.

Can someone help me? What is a good (prefer free app) where I can do this. Even the hard wired Apple TV will not wake up the iMac.

iMac 27" Retina 5K, i7 4.0, 32gb ram, 4gb graph, 3tb fusion / MacBook Pro Retina 13" / iPhone 6 Plus 128GB Silver / 160 GB Video iPod Silver / 16 GB Nano / Apple TV 2 and 3

I don't know of a specific app to do it, but what you are looking for is something that can "wake on lan" or "wake on wifi"/"wake of wireless". I'm sure there are apps out there. This might get you started in your search.
