Andrea Bocelli: Con te Partiro
Immediately, I clicked on the one song that made me buy this album in the first place: Con te Partiro.
I’ve mentioned this before, but it was a long time ago… so I’ll recap. When I was in grad school, I found myself falling asleep in front of the TV a great deal. I was more of a night owl, and would often be up until 1-3 on any given night.
One evening, I fell asleep to some documentary on the local PBS station. When I woke, I heard one of the most amazing voices singing. Now keep in mind – I’m not a big fan of opera by any means, but something about his voice fascinated me and drew me in. The whole time Andrea Bocelli was singing, he had his eyes closed; it wasn’t until after the performance was over that I realized he was blind.
What can I say? The guy’s dreamy.
Interesting side note: this is a photo of my friends Jesseca and Jim. Don’t you think Jim looks a lot like Bocelli?
