Andrea Bocelli’s Easter Sunday performance from Milan’s empty Duomo cathedral drew more than 35 million streaming views.
Now the famed Italian tenor marks Memorial Day with a solo performance of “Ave Maria” on TODAY as part of our Citi Concert Series. A beautiful song. Following a football accident, Bocelli was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma, becoming completely blind at age 12.
Since 1982, Bocelli has recorded 15 solo studio albums of both pop and classical music, three greatest hits albums, and nine complete operas, selling over 90 million records worldwide.
