Andrea Background
.
Vocalist Andrea Bocelli is well known in the classical world for his operas and concerts. While his performances were well received, many people in the United States may have first become aware of him with his hit CD Ramanza which contains "Time To Say Goodbye" and "Con te Partiro". The lush operatic ballad, "Con te Partiro" was heard on the TV ads for the opening of the Las Vegas hotel The Bellagio in October 1998. 

Andrea has been visually impaired since birth. At the age of 12, a football accident made him totally blind.

    Andrea Comments

    Comments
    28 Apr - I recently attended the performance of Andrea Bocelli at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, April 24, 1999. The experience was breathtaking. I could barely breathe during his performances until I finally cried during the standing ovations and his many encores. Andrea, My heart and soul is lost in your smile and the beauty of you voice, your wife is truly blessed to be a part of your life. God Bless You ! Deborah

    16 Apr - I took my 5yr old granddaughter to see andrea last nite at the pond in anaheim and she was thrilled. however, when we left, she forgot to take her program and i want to replace it for her. if someone can tell me where to buy another one, you will make a little girl very happy. she is a little big fan. thank you 

    15 Apr - I am still in cloud # 9 after seeing Andrea in concert in Phoenix, AZ. This past Sunday, it is the most enjoyable concert I've ever been to. I took my mother with me, she was visiting from Mexico, and she said it was a heavenly experience to see him and listening to him in person. Andrea, God bless you!!! 

    11 Apr - Andrea, My sister and I just love your voice, we both play your CD "Romanza" all the time, even in our cars. We just purchase you new CD "Sogno" and it is just as beautiful and enjoyable as "Romanza". We are Italian but sorry to say we don't speak the language. Hope someday you will be in concert in Philadelphia or New York so we can experience your wonderful voice in person. Thank you for all the enjoyable listening hours. -- Best regards, Donna
