#Cinema - Andrea Bocelli #O2O

Andrea Bocelli is having quite a busy year. The Italian Italian classical tenor, recording artist and singer-songwriter was recently invited by Vatican officials to sing for Pope Francis on his historic visit to my hometown, Philadelphia. He has also been been busy with a major project, a new album of classic and famous movie songs, Cinema, which he produced with his longtime producers David Foster, Umberto Gattica and Tony Renis. Bocelli records duets with Ariana Grande and Nicole Scherzinger. 

Listening to this album in advance was pure magic. Music and motion pictures are a love of mine, and Andrea Bocelli' Cinema is pure magic. Cinema by Andrea Bocelli features a collection of movie songs etched in the culture and hearts of several generations. When I listened to Cinema I was carried back in time to when heard these songs for the first time watching the movie. Cinema brings life to  famous theme songs from films such as  “The Godfather”, “Life is Beautiful”, “Gladiator”,  “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and many more. Songs such as MARIA from ‘West Side Story’ to NO LLORES POR MÍ ARGENTINA duet with Nicole Scherzinger from ‘Evita’.  This album is just incredible. It is simply pure magic.

Bocelli was quoted saying this “I’m fulfilling a wish that I’ve harboured for decades. I’ve never made a secret of my dream of bringing to life a recording project associated with soundtracks, as I truly believe that it’s an exceptional artistic treasure trove.”

It truly shows and it's a must!!!
