A few months ago, Andrea Bocelli dropped his first single from his most recent album, Si. The song is titled 'If Only' and it offered a unique perspective into Bocelli's life.
Apart from being the singer's first original single in 14 years, the video also featured his family, including his son and granddaughter. It was not as if Bocelli had been doing nothing in the last years, though. He had collaborated with artists such as Ed Sheeran to produce really beautiful music.
His performance in 'If Only' captured many hearts as always, especially considering that he just turned 60. While talking about the inspiration behind his new album, Bocelli said it was all about returning to his memories of being a young man, exploring his passion for music at a piano bar.
He admitted that while he has released loads of music over the years, for this album, he wanted to take a trip down memory lane. He revealed:
I said to myself: ‘Maybe the time has come to put my effort into finding new songs.’ Like starting all over again, as it were, in my career.
Based on If Only, it's safe to say Bocelli did not disappoint with this album. Check out the amazing video below and you'll have one more reason to fall in love with this talented singer.
People absolutely adored the song right from the moment it was released. One YouTube commenter, Patricia Bennet, pointed out:
Very emotional and so beautifully performed. This showcases how good Andre can sing. He is remarkable and resilient. All of his family are wonderful. It is so nice to see them all together. Love conquers all. So very well put together, I commend all of them.
Another internet user, ScotsWizard, wanted to praise Bocelli for living such a great life and beautifully interpreting his love for family through his music.
God bless you Andrea Bocelli. From what I've just witnessed and listened to, you must have had such an extraordinary life of wonder, joy and beauty.
It was such an amazing experience to see the singer's family in such a touching setting. A heartwarming video indeed and, as always, he wowed us with his impressive vocal range.
