For Andrea Bocelli, singing was nothing more than a family affair. Any number of adjectives could not describe his voice. But, there was a reason Andrea Bocelli had sold more than 90 million albums.
But there wasn’t a single Bocelli who sang. Instead, his daughter Virginia and his son Matteo were also singers. They have come together for a Christmas album for the first time. One of the tracks from the album, “Il Giorno Più Speciale,” gained numerous online followers because of the lovely music celebrating the holiday season.
During a recent interview, one interviewer asked Andrea why he wanted to do a Christmas album. He replied, “I think it was an amazing opportunity because we could spend time together.”
This holiday season, Andrea, Matteo, and Virginia Bocelli released their album, “A Family Christmas.” It was to offer heartfelt gifts to anyone who would want to enjoy the soundtrack this festive season.
The album included several Christmas favorites, such as ‘Away in a Manager,’ ‘Feliz Navidad, Happy Xmas (War is Over),’ and ‘Over the Rainbow.’ The album also had the song, ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,’ and a new track, ‘The Greatest Gift,’ with many other beautiful pieces.
Andrea was one of the best classical music artists of all time. For Bocelli, music was part of his life. In one of his interviews, Andrea said, “I knew that my destiny was music. Since my childhood, I was surrounded by families and friends who would ask me to sing.”
Well, it’s still the same for Andrea, but now he is known to sing for presidents, popes, queens, and for the world. Matteo and Virginia continued the family tradition of bringing beautiful music to their fans and followers and have made their father proud.
