Andrea Bocelli’s captivating voice made him one of the most famous singers worldwide, and his fame only grows bigger with each passing day. With over 15 albums under his belt, Bocelli never ceases to amaze his fans with something new and refreshing, such as his transition from opera to pop music.
His duet with the Canadian singer Celine Dion from 1998, “The Prayer,” which was recorded for the animated film Quest for Camelot brought them the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Speaking of Bocelli, Dion once said, “If God would have a singing voice, he must sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.”
For the Bocelli family, it looks like musical talent is rooted in their genes. His son Mateo follows in his father’s footsteps and is pursuing career in music. His duet with his dad, “Fall On Me,” is touching and a huge hit that touched many hearts.
