Andrea Bocelli is a world-famous singer who has performed in some of the most beautiful music venues. However, this performance is one of his most endearing, and it happens in the simplest location.
Andrea and his son Matteo and daughter Virginia sit on the couch surrounded by many lit-up trees. The trees are decorated with white ornaments and lights. The singers are all wearing white, and Virginia holds the family dog.
They sing the holiday classic ‘Feliz Navidad’ while spreading the festive spirit. Andrea plays guitar as they sing together. The tune was written in 1970 by singer/songwriter José Feliciano.
The simple, heartfelt lyrics are sung enthusiastically: ‘I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart.’ The song contains wishes for a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year, sung in Spanish.
Andrea spent his teen years singing and performing in piano bars and in singing competitions. Andrea finally won the 44th Sanremo Music Festival singing competition in 1994.
Since then, Andrea has recorded 17 albums, becoming a worldwide success story. He often mixes pop and classical styles, which led him to sell over 75 million records. Andrea is one of the few classical crossover artists who brought the genre to the masses.
The parenting expression ‘The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree’ comes to mind when you hear these three unique voices singing together. The simple arrangement is beautiful, and the family gathering is touching.
