About Andrea Bocelli:
Words aren’t enough to describe how great and talented Andrea Bocelli is. He is definitely a legend. We all grew up hearing one or more of his songs and to date, we still love hearing and watching him perform. Well, there goes my good news! Andrea Bocelli is on tour… and guess what? It’s true! Andrea Bocelli will be here in Texas. Oh, what a night it will be.
“Andrea Bocelli’s music… his voice… closest thing to heaven”
My own personal comment but I think it matters because it’s so true.
[ad#300×250 L-side]Born on September 22, 1958, Andrea Bocelli is now 53 but still, his music is covetable. He was born in Toscana, Italy. He was born with poor eyesight and later detected with ‘congenital glaucoma’. After a football game accident, he lost his ability to see and that was in 1970 when he was only 12. Everything happens for a reason – you may say. Evidently, that didn’t stop him from anything… even pursuing what he is passionate about. Music. At an early age, Andrea Bocelli had a real love for music. He even said that it was the thing that made him feel at ease.
When I listen to Andrea Bocelli’s songs, I always find myself closing my eyes and just concentrating to that unique voice and how he delivers every note of the song perfectly. It’s a real pleasure listening to him. And that was only listening. When I saw him perform live, I was awestruck. He really is beautiful – his songs, his voice, and everything that he is. No wonder he was named as one of People Magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful People’. Imagine Andrea Bocelli Austin Frank Erwin Center!
Aside from his brilliant vocals, Andrea Bocelli is also a multi-instrumentalist, being able to play the keyboards, saxophone, flute, trombone, trumpet, harmonica, harp, melodic, guitar and drums. His music is categorized under adult contemporary, classical, Latin pop, easy listening, operatic pop, opera and pop.
Andrea Bocelli and his awesome records
Andrea Bocelli was able to release 13 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, 4 collaborative albums, 8 complete opera recordings, 1 digital album, and 9 live albums and videos.
‘Il Mare Calmo della Sera’ was the title of Andrea Bocelli’s first studio album, released in 1994. It was followed by ‘Bocelli’ which was released a year after. This album made it as one of the best-selling albums ever in Germany. It also peaked number 1 on different charts including Finland, Netherlands, Belgium and Swiss Music charts. To name a few, his other albums were ‘Viaggio Italiano’ in 1997, ‘Sogno’ in 1999, ‘Sacred Arias’ also in 1999, ‘Cieli di Toscana’ in 2001 (which debuted number 11 on the US charts), ‘Amore’ in 2006 (owned the number 3 position on the US Albums Top 100), ‘Incanto’ in 2008 (peaked the number 8 position on the U.S. Billboard 200), and ‘My Christmas’ in 2009 (owned the number 1 position on the US Top Classical Albums).
Andrea Bocelli was able to release a lot of hit singles as well. Some of his solo singles were ‘Il mare calmo della sera’, ‘Ave Maria’, ‘Melodramma’, ‘Un nuovo giorno’ and ‘White Christmas/Bianco Natale’. He was also able to release a lot of duet singles that I personally believe we all really loved and still love. These are ‘Time to Say Goodbye’ with Sarah Brightman, ‘The Prayer’ with Celine Dion, ‘Somos Novios (It’s Impossible)’ with Christina Aguilera, ‘Because we believe’ with Marco Borsato, ‘Dare to live’ with Laura Pausini, ‘What Child Is This’ with Mary J. Blige, and ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ also with Mary J. Blige – to name a few.
Andrea Bocelli gained a lot of awards. Well, with his talent, it’s really rather expected. Some of the awards that he received were ‘Best Single of the Year’ (Time to Say Goodbye) at Echo music awards in 1997, ‘Best Italian Singer’ and ‘Best Classical Interpretation’ at the World Music Awards in 1998, ‘Best selling classical album’ and ‘Album of the year’ (Sacred Arias) at the Classical BRIT Awards in 2000, ‘World best selling classical artist’ and ‘Best selling Italian artist’ at the World Music Awards in 2002, and ‘Outstanding Contribution to Music’ at the Classical BRIT Awards in 2002 just to name a few.
Andrea Bocelli is certainly one of the greatest in this industry. You will never be disappointed.
