Hey guys! I'm back with another blog post about Andrea Bocelli. So recently on Easter Sunday, by invitation of the City and of the Duomo cathedral of Milan, world reknowned singer Andrea Bocelli AKA THE LEGEND gave a solo performance "Music For Hope" representing a message of love, healing and hope to Italy and the world. The performance was simple: just the pipe organ and the legendary voice of an angel.
As Andrea Bocelli sang, his bright, strong yet gentle voice resonated throughout the cathedral. If I'm not wrong, the first song that he sang for "Music For Hope" was "Ave Maria" which is a wonderful and sacred piece of music. I have always known that sopranos and even castratos (is that how you say it? And please don't google it) attempt such songs with their high pitched voices and typically VERY FEW of them actually perform it well. However, Andrea Bocelli definitely did not let us down! He soared through the high notes of the song with ease and grace, making it look so easy. I'm not really sure about the rest of the songs about they all sounded really good and showed us how skilled Andrea Bocelli really is.
In whole, I feel that "Music For Hope" gave me the chills, not because of the voice or the accompaniment itself, but because of the emotions and message it delivers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is feeling down and pessimistic with loved ones lost to the disease and their livelihood being ruined. Such an act by Andrea Bocelli can really boost the morale of everyone and it is really important to give out the message that "Hope is not lost and we can overcome the disease together".
