Matteo Bocelli has proven that he has his father's talent during a backstage performance and fans are in awe.
Andrea Bocelli is a popular singer who has collaborated with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti. Andrea's love for music began at a very young age. According to Biography, he was only six years old when he started studying the piano. He was visually impaired from birth, but he only became blind at age 12, after experiencing a soccer injury.
Andrea never let all this keep him from his love of music. He continued to hone his talent as he grew up Even though he attended the University of Pisa to study law, he never let music take the back seat. Over the years, he has released several albums which feature such stars as Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado, Ariana Grande, and Nicole Scherzinger.
Andrea married for the first time in 1992. He and his wife had two sons together, Amos and Matteo, but the couple separated in 2002. Matteo was born in October 1997, which means he turned 21 this year. Like his father, this handsome young man has a strong passion for music.
The father and son have a lot in common apart from their looks. And Andrea is obviously happy to help Matteo improve and grow as a singer. This was probably why Matteo's beautiful voice can be heard in Andrea Bocelli's album, Si.
The song featuring Matteo is called 'Fall On Me.' The lyrics are a combination of English and Italian, a tribute to each other. Andrea is incredibly proud of his son's talent. He once talked to Billboard about what he thought about the blend of both their voices:
Technically they are very different, 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.
Check out Matteo's rendition of 'Love Me Tender' by Elvis Presley, which was posted on YouTube earlier this year. From the comments below the clip, you can tell that many people were blown away.
One commenter, Mitch F, put it aptly when he said;
Wow, the world is blessed with another amazing Bocelli!
Together, Matteo and Andrea's voices mix perfectly. Listening to the younger Bocelli sing on his own, though, leave with filled with joy. He is a very gifted singer, indeed!
