Ignazio placed #1 in the catagory of Most Adorable Guys of All Time! We already knew that, didn’t we?

Thank you, Linda, for keeping us up to date on our neighbors to the south. I have certainly learned a lot about these cities thru your posts. I am so proud that Our Guys came in first in several categories of the Top Ten Polls. But, of course, they are FIRST in our hearts in every category!
Thank you, Allene! I’ve learned a lot too! Il Volo will ALWAYS be first!
Linda, May I suggest a correction – the Sunday Tree lighting is not in Santa Monica. It is being held at a shopping center called “The Grove” which is in Los Angeles between Beverly Blvd and 3rd St. on a street called “The Grove Drive” west of downtown.
If any of you are going to be at the tree lighting I would love to meet you there. Put a face with the names I have gotten to know here on this site.
Myron, you make me wish I could just hop on the next plane and leave Portland for LA just so I could see IL Volo and other members of the Flight Crew!. What a happy time that would be!
Wow Myron, what a true IL VOLO fan you are, going to the Tree Lighting. You live in Las Vegas, and going to Calif just to see it. That is nice that you can attend so many of their performances. Tell the guys how happy they made their fans to see all the videos from the concerts, they worked so damn hard. There were so many highlights! Still not over yet, one more to go!
Ignazio should have come in #! of the Top 10 Tenors alongside Piero, they are two different tenors. At least he came in #1 Most Adorable Guy, I helped put him there. Never mind Ignazio you are #1 tenor in my book. as well as the Most Adorable Guy.
Most Adorable #1 Ignazio,#2 Gianluca, and #3 Piero.
What a thrill it must be for them to see their names top other performers. I can imagine that Piero being embarrassed to have passed tenors he admires and pleased at the same time to end up on top. We love our IL Volo and always will!
Ruth, nice story on ATIV! Sounds familar. Isn’t it amazing what 3 teenage boys have been given, and are delivering to the world. Not just spectacular voices, but hope,comfort,courage,joy,lightheartedness,love, kindness and whatever else that is lacking in ones heart.
What we are, is God’s gift to us.
What we become, is our gift to God.
Sounds like IL VOLO to me!
Beautiful (Be-you-to-full), Kitty!
Ruth, can you give us a link to ATIV where your story is? (I confess that I’m oblivious on that source.)
Guys, you deserve every comment and vote you received! They were expressed with full, grateful, and awe-filled hearts!
Did you see that for most adorable, you 3 are #1, #2, #3?! I would have made them a tie if that were possible, as you are each adorable in your own special way!

Oops! … A T I V … Silly me! Just didn’t recognize the initials. I usually only look at photos on All Things IL VOLO, so thanks for the heads up!
Beautiful, Ruth! Thank you so much! Happy for you and all of us experiencing the transformation into the Light of Life with Our Boys!

I wish I was going to the tree lighting. I would like to meet to meet some of the crew so like you said Myron I could put a face to the names. I have a question. The Wine and Dine that is coming up. Is this what theCrew was talking about setting up or is this a different arrangement? I would love to go, but that is kind of pricey for me.
Piero just tweeted that he is seeing his dad off at the airport, his dad is going home. Piero says how much he’ll miss him, but he’ll be home in a month to see everybody!! I bet they’re glad to see light at the end of the tunnel and they’ll be home soon!
