Describing a recent performance, The Morning Call raved, “The purity and precision of Bocelli’s tenor was, indeed, otherworldly,” while The Columbus Dispatch calls the tenor “absolutely amazing.”
Bocelli’s latest album, Cinema, was released this fall, and highlights a collection of movie songs etched in the culture and hearts of several generations, including epic theme songs featured in films such as “Doctor Zhivago,” “Love Story,” “The Godfather,” “Life is Beautiful,” “Gladiator,” and many more. The album includes duets with international superstars Ariana Grande and Nicole Scherzinger.
Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, Andrea Bocelli exploded onto the world’s stage with his hit, “Con te Partiro” (and later its arrangement as a duet with Sarah Brightman with the title “Time To Say Goodbye”), and has since sold 80 million records and performed countless worldwide tours. Today, Bocelli is known for being one of the greatest singing talents in the world.
