My Dear Young Gentlemen of Il Volo,
You have been honored with many important awards and many more will certainly come your way. However, your truest award will always be the one we, The Il Volo Flight Crew, give you every time we hear your voices, see your handsome faces or read your accomplishments. It is the knowledge that we will love and support you to the end of time. If there was a greater award we would give that too.
You may not know us, but we know you well, from the freckle on the end of Ignazio’s nose to the scar on Gianluca’s cheek. We knew you before your countrymen. We knew you when you had curls. To us you are family, to some of us sons or grandsons, to others best friends or heart throbs. We know your families, your friends, your supporters and your critics. More, we know your visions, your morals, your values and your goals. Our support for them is unending. Above all, we know your songs.
This is not an award that was voted on. There were no polls. There was only our time with you and our pride in your talent and in yourselves.
Honor this award, Gentlemen of Il Volo. Hang it above the others.
In Faithful Love and Devotion,
The Flight Crew
