You’ve probably heard many people in your life claim that they dislike classical music. If you enjoy it, people around you might even beg you not to play it while they’re around. But there’s no denying that singers of classical music have some of the unique and amazing voices in the industry.
If operas and symphonies aren’t your things, the fantastic vocals of the music are still undeniably talented. That’s precisely why people love Italian singer Andrea Bocelli.
His albums have been sold over 90 million times, and his most recent record hit an impressive number one according to the Billboard 100. There’s no objecting to the fact that his voice is a favorite of many. Even Celine Dion herself compared his voice to God!
Andrea’s amazing vocals have landed him musical opportunities with other great artists, such as Josh Groban and recently Ed Sheeran.
However, one of the most amazing duets of all time came through when Andrea decided to sing with his beautiful wife, Veronica Berti-Bocelli.
Andrea and Veronica fell in love many years ago. Veronica was only 18 years old at the time, but her husband recalls becoming amazed by not only her beauty but her voice as well. It was love at first sight for the pair, who moved in together the very day they met!
Although Andrea is nearly twice Veronica’s age, as they are 60 and 35 respectively, they claim that their age gap doesn’t cause them any issues and only helps their relationship.
Andrea recalls growing up in a family where age gaps within relationships were extremely normal and something they embraced. The two bond over classical music, and enjoy performing duets together. It’s clear that their love for music is what keeps their relationship so strong!
Not only do Andrea and his wife love music, but his son Matteo is also an opera singer.
Although he is only 21 years old, he’s beginning his music career and gaining traction in the industry by collaborating with his father.
He was featured on Andrea’s new record, titled Si, in a song called “Fall on Me.” Andrea maintains that he is extremely impressed with Matteo’s musical talents and believes in his success.
