Classical music was supposed to be limited to the four corners of the concert halls. But thanks to Andrea Bocelli and the new breed of classical performers, classical music now had reached audiences worldwide just like the way pop music entices people. Yet, Andrea Bocelli did not find an easy way. He was born in a small farming village in Tuscany, Italy in 1958, where he and his family made and sold wine and farm machinery. By the time he was 12, he completely lost his sight following a football game and also due to a congenital illness. Despite that, he learned how to play the piano and other classical instruments. That fueled him to sing not just to comfort himself but also to materialize his dreams.
After winning the newcomers category of the Sanremo Music festival song competition in 1994, things speeded up for Andrea Bocelli. In 1999, he was on top of his musical career, winning music awards, appearing on covers of prestigious magazines and recording best selling albums. Currently he had performed in more than nine operas, and recorded 13 solo albums in both pop and classical genres that sold more than 75 million copies worldwide. One of his CDs, Sacred Arias, even became the biggest selling classical album of all time.
Both fans and critics agree that Andrea Bocelli’s success came from his soulful voice. Accordingly, his voice shows the purity of his heart. One critic even suggests that Andrea Bocelli has the most beautiful voice on earth that his fans include actress Elizabeth Taylor, Queen Elizabeth, the late Pope John Paul II, and Prince Albert of Monaco.
Bocelli’s lack of formal musical training made some people suggest that that he is not doing it how a classical music should be. But the truth remains that every time he sings, the world stops and listens. It is no wonder that up to this date, he remains the most sought opera singer.
