Beloved singer Celine Dion once said, “If God would have a singing voice, he must sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.”
Andrea is known around the world for his amazing voice, and he brings packed crowds to tears with its beauty.
Recently, Andrea’s son, Matteo, has begun to sing with his father, and it’s clear the apple did not fall far from the tree.
In September, the father and son released a music video for their song “Fall On Me” and it was met with instant acclaim. People couldn’t believe how much Matteo sounded like his father and how beautifully their voices blended together.
The song was such a hit that the pair was asked to perform it on Dancing with the Stars and they left the audience wiping away tears as their angelic voices filled the air.
“Fall On Me” will be featured during the end credits of the upcoming Disney movie The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, which opens November 2. While the Boccelis sang, some of the professional dancers from DWTS performed a Nutcracker-inspired routine that added to the beauty and the mystery of the moment.
It truly was a special performance!
In a recent interview with Billboard, Andrea spoke about how proud he is of Matteo for following the music in his heart and how much he enjoys performing with him.
”Matteo was raised on ‘bread and music,’” he said. “While in high school, he also studied piano at the conservatory (where he is now studying opera). He is passionate about opera and has already performed in serious venues.
“He seems inclined to follow his father’s footsteps, even though an artistic career is made up of many things, at times unknowable, and cannot certainly be devised at the drawing table.”
Andrea also revealed how the two of them are able to blend their voices in such an incredible and beautiful way.
“Technically they are very different,” he said, “but there is one thing that makes them most similar: the attitude. That characteristic way of expressing yourself through your voice.
“This makes Matteo and I very similar. But that is something that you cannot learn, that cannot be taught. That is something you are born with.”
Clearly, Andrea has passed on his incredible musical gifts to Matteo, and the world thanks him for that. What an amazing privilege to be able to hear their angelic voices rise together!
