Celebrate the phenomenal IL VOLO!
Taormina concert July 2014
...and restrospective videos
My favorite concert yet by IL VOLO!
with exciting new additions (songs I *hope* yet to be professionally recorded!)
performed at the beautiful Taormina Ancient Greek Theatre (in Sicilia, Italy)...
Listening to IL VOLO always reminds me that...
Music in the soul can be heard by the Universe. ~ Lao Tzu

Through Ti Lascio Una Canzone*
Antonella Clerici has been part of IL VOLO's lives since the beginning
(above) IL VOLO's return visit to Ti Lascio Una Canzone 5 years later (spring 2014)
at 3:20, notice tears... Antonella, one of the judges, and hugs from the maestro (same maestro as 2009)
thanks for upload to IL VOLO Mundial
click here to see Antonella with Gianluca, contest winner, as Andrea Bocelli speaks to Gianluca (2009)
Bocelli tells Gianluca that his friends have raved about Gianluca, and then one evening he turned on the TV to listen to him.
Bocelli said that you can tell from Gianluca's way of singing that he listened to Bocelli's records,
and Bocelli likes this because Gianluca is very young (14).
Bocelli gives three tips: .. 1) think with your head .. 2) sing in your own voice .. 3) listen to your heart

* "Ti lascio una canzone" (which means "I leave you with a song") is an Italian TV contest where Piero, Gianluca, and Ignazio met in 2009. Their voices were put together by a producer in the fourth round, and as the Guys say, "from there, IL VOLO was born." (IL VOLO chose their name some time later.)
