DESCRIPTION
Il Volo
is a group of three (unconventional) teenage boys that came to fame in Italy after appearing on the Italian talent show Ti Lascio Una Canzone. They were promptly snapped up by the leading people in the music industry in Italy and their debut album quickly went platinum. Like Andrea Bocelli before them, they are Italians set for the international stage. Their appearance on American Idol in 2011 caused a frenzy of first week sales for the lads with further plans to launch themselves elsewhere in the world. Their appeal is definitely their quirky image coupled with their unexpectedly mature vocals. They cover old ground in the classical crossover sphere, but they certainly package it in a new and exciting way. With undeniably strong voices and impeccable charm, Il Volo are hard to resist and are likely to be serious competition for the more traditional and predictable Il Divo.

The PBS concert, 'We are Love', aired this weekend. It was fantastic.

Nicola,
Can you change a the photo for the vocal artists page? These guys have matured so much since the album cover photo was taken.
Thanks

I'm the only one posting! I love these guys! I love 'Beautiful Day' on your 'We Are Love' album. The only recording I had heard that I liked was by Bad Boy of Opera, Ki Fitzgerald, on this site, but it wasn't available for download. Then I heard your recording and I loved it. Your fan base is not on this site or your vote total would be so much higher. It still boggles my mind that you are all teenagers. Your voices are incredible!

I'm the only one leaving comments! These young men are superb! The new album is wonderful, such incredible talent. The Christmas songs weren't necessary. The first 12 tracks were superb, in and of themselves.

Their new album cover shows a brand new Ignazio, very handsome!

I loved their PBS special. They are so talented. They do display their youth but it's charming. Gianluca could melt any woman's heart!
