Jeanine Transported in Joy by
her Favorite Musical Performers...

IL VOLO, 3 young Italians (two tenors and a baritone, now 21 to 23 years old)
bring us joy, harmony, and hope for our planet,
  as their spirits, humor, and musical majesty transform our world
Grazie mille, Gianluca, Ignazio, Piero, and your team!

Music in the soul can be heard by the Universe. ~ Lao Tzu


IL VOLO Soul Lights Spark Bonfires in Our Hearts

I Just ran across an essay by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
called “Let Your Soul Light Shine Bright” (circa 2007)

It feels like she’s talking about Our Boys, IL VOLO!
Here’s a passage from Estés' essay linked below.

“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these…. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.”

Whew! Words for what I’ve felt!

Deep appreciation for our fully lit and shining angel-souls!

in Ti Lascio Una Canzone, an Italian TV show contest,
and a producer put their 3 voices together, which led to becoming IL VOLO)

Looking back...

Sweet auspicious beginnings...

Wow! Music is everywhere uplifting the planet. These boys sing with such heart and majesty! Their name, IL VOLO, means "flight", and to listen to them, I feel like I'm flying! And, yes, you can purchase on iTunes. They earned a Platinum record in 6 months in Italy! And Quincy Jones invited them to represent Italy on the single We Are the World 25 for Haiti.
