Matteo Bocelli Gives Another Mind-Blowing Performance, Proving He Has Taken After His Talented Father
We all know musical legend Andrea Bocelli, a mastermind who has soothed millions with his classical tenor music, alluring with his strong, vibrant voice.
Well, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Meet his son, Matteo Bocelli, a musical prodigy, just like his father.
Matteo was born in October 8th, 1997, in Forte Dei Marmi, an Italian resort popularly known to house Italian musicians.
It is safe to say that Matteo was born into music! He is Andrea Bocelli's youngest son with his first wife, Enrica Cenzatti.
Matteo accredits his musical prowess to his dad, saying that his father’s love and passion for music inspired him to be the musician he is today.
He started taking piano lessons at an early stage in his life, but then, at the age of 17, Andrea took note of his son's musical skills and took Matteo under his wings, tutoring and molding his voice and abilities.
Matteo gave his first musical performance when he was 18, as a tenor at the Teatro Del Silenzio, performing brilliantly in front of twelve thousand people.
He performed on the same stage with the likes of Leo Nucci and Sumi Jo. He made his debut performance with Arias by Giuseppe Verdi.
Matteo recently collaborated with his father on the hit song Fall on me, from Andrea Bocelli's album ‘Si.’
The duo sang both in English and their mother tongue, Italian, pouring out their hearts and feelings for each other.
The song is reported to be used in the soundtrack of two upcoming Disney movie, ‘The Nutcracker’ and ‘Four Realms,’ which features actors such as Keira Knightley and Morgan Freeman.
The duo recently performed their hit song on ‘The Late Night Show', romancing the audience, by singing in perfect harmony together.
A soft piano key opened the rendition, giving way to Matteo to start the song in his relaxed voice. Andrea joined him, smiling and encouraging by patting his son on the shoulder. As the music rose, the two sang beautifully together, harmonizingly, giving the song a robust and passionate ending.
It is obvious Matteo gets his inspiration from his father, and he looks up to him.
When Andrea was asked about his son's voice, he showered praises on Matteo. Not only did his tone express his pride as a fahter, but also as a teacher who is watching his student shine.
Andrea lauds Matteo's voice with having an ‘attitude’, which is akin to a voice's life and which cannot be taught: One can only be born with it.
We are definitely having fun watching the young musician grow and we can't wait to see him soar higher than he imagined.
