Chances are you probably know this voice, it’s on of the most recognized in the world. It’s Andrea Boceli, who’s sold more than 70 million records since 1992.
The renowned Italian tenor has just released “My Christmas” Bocelli’s first holiday cd that features Christmas carols.
“It is the feast where we celebrate a religious event but also, above
all, the family. We all have so many memories of our childhood. And
these songs will bring great peace to the soul.”
The CD includes titles such as “Adeste Fideles” and “O Tanenbaum”.
Bocelli sings some of the titles solo, other are duets, like “Christmas
Song” who he sings by the side of Natalie Cole.
Even the world's most famous puppets like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy wanted to celebrate Christmas next to Bocelli.
“The thing that impressed me most was when I saw that my children were moved."
A few days after the cd was released, it’s already one of the top 10
most sold in the U.S and Europe. A sign perhaps that music is the real
secret to capturing the Christmas spirit.
