“If God could sing, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli” Celine Dion once said.
After long years he is on the stage of Arena Armeets Sofia on 30 May 2014.
He was born in Tuscany – the homeland of Puccini and Mascagni – and raised in a little village near Pisa enjoying his family’s full support in learning music. No matter how great his love was for the piano or the flute, he found the perfect musical instrument in is his own voice while meeting with success for the first time as a teenage boy.
To be able to support his musical studies with noted teachers he was playing the piano in bars while he was carrying on his legal studies at the University of Pisa as well.
The influence of Pop was becoming stronger and stronger in the world’s taste of music has reached him too. He took part in various pop-projects but never forgot about his main passion-opera. This dual musical development shaped his personal style further on – one that is based on traditional operas, but entertains the widest range of audience.

He won the song contest in Sanremo with “Il Mare Calmo della Sera.” He was given a part in Verdi’s Macbeth and at Christmas in the same year he sang “Adeste Fideles” for the Pope and tens of thousands of believers at St. Peter Square.

His popularity is far beyond that of his older colleagues like Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo, nevertheless they have concerts together from time to time. Bocelli’s influence to modern music is mentioned alongside with Caruso’s and Sinatra’s.
“I don’t think one decides to become a singer. It is decided for you by the reactions of the people around you” says Bocelli, who likes to describe himself as a “modern but old-fashioned” tenor.
One of the exceptional singer’s most important features is his perfect voice that is simultaneously melancholic and radiant in color, especially when he sings as a lover or a father.
