Hi Gianluca,
Just wanted to be one of your fans to wish you a Very Happy 21st Birthday!!!  Also wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your concert in Orillia on Sunday especially when you sang to my Granddaughter and how wonderful it was to meet you after the Concert, I have been following you since you were only 14 and can’t believe you are 21 already. I hope you can enjoy celebrating with family and friends who are travelling with you and I’m sure there will be an even bigger celebration with family and friends when you return home.
wishing great fun touring and keeping safe on your travels, all the best for the future and hope to see you again in the Toronto area, you have a lot of fans here in Canada.
Love and best wishes,
Annie Hatfield

Tanti Auguri Gianluca! It has been such an amazing year for you, Piero and Ignazio and for all your loving fans. Can’t forget your last birthday when you brought the audience to their feet after singing “Grande Amore” at SanRemo. It was fantastic and I am so happy they acknowledged that you were the best. I absolutely love all the new albums and play them constantly and it has been a great pleasure to see the videos of the beautiful concerts during the summer and now this past January. It is just wonderful that your beloved Italia realized how talented and beautiful you are and has returned your “Grande Amore”. Thank you for all the beautiful music and giving so much joy and happiness. It is so beautiful to see how loving and caring you are with your family, friends and fans. Looking forward to seeing you in Easton, Pa. God bless you and all your loved ones!

Love, Margaret Ladolcetta

Have a wonderful birthday with family and friends this year! You deserve it!!🎂

I have watched you mature over the years since you appeared in the early video singing “O Solo Mio” with Piero and Ignazio with the orchestra on the side of a hill in Italy. Someone sent me that video, and it was love at first sight for me!  I listen to your music daily, and it brings me so much joy.

You are such a wonderful role model for the young people all over the world in the way that you treat your fans and care for the less fortunate who love your attention.  You make your family and fans very proud by the way that you live.

Thank you for all of your hard work and bringing your tour back to TEXAS this year.  We live 40km north of Austin, and have front row tickets along with Meet and Greet afterwards!😍 My birthday is that week so I am really looking forward to the concert and seeing you guys again.

“When once you have tasted flight,
you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,
for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” ~Leonardo Da Vinci
Dear Gianluca:
Most of us celebrate our 21st birthday as a “coming of age”. You have already accomplished that and stand on the threshold of a lifetime of flight with your music. There is no better name for your three voices than “Il Volo” – for you are flying high above the crowd.

I thank God for your talent.
I thank your parents for your upbringing.
I thank you for your willingness to share yourself with us!
Godspeed and fly high, dear one.


Happy 21st Birthday, Gianluca!  May your heart and soul be filled with the same joy as you give to all of us. 

Love from Minnesota,



Dear Gianluca – Just want to wish you the happiest of birthdays. Always remain as sweet and sensitive as you are today.  The sign of a real man is the fact that he can show his emotions.  You have the most beautiful voice – I love listening to you.  I cannot wait to see you on February 13 in Atlantic City and again on February 21 in Easton. Also, I think your Martina is adorable – happiness to both of you.  ~ Camille Greco


balloonsMy Dear Gianluca,
Thank You for allowing me the joy of watching you grow both personally and professionally.

Buon 21st! 

See You soon!!!

    I am looking forward to meeting you in Las Vegas next month!!!

  4. Thanks for the pictures of Giuanluca Kelly. I was fortunate to have been able to give Gianluca a present on the 5th of February. Wouldn’t miss that the for the world I also was at a concert for Piero last year on his birthday so now |I would like to be at a concert for Ignazio’s birthday hopefully he will be in the States around that time.

    1. I’m sure he loved it, Loretta. You’re a determined woman; I bet you could will Iganzio into North America around his birthday! 😉

  5. There should be a little birthday surprise in your hotel room today. I hope it got there. All my best on this special day.

  6. Kelly, what a beautiful job you did! My favorite picture is the one with his hand above his heart. Isn’t he so perfectly beautiful? With an equally beautiful heart & spirit? Thank you so much, Kelly.

  7. Beautiful pictures from teenager to manhood. 21 always seems an age to come but finally it has arrived today. I hope Gianluca and all his family, and extended family have a wonderful day, as he has given us so much enjoyment everyday just listening to him and watching him grow up. Buon Compleanno Gianluca

  8. Dear Gianluca,
    tanti auguri,
    may your spirit reach new heights,
    as freely as a butterfly’s wings,
    May your heart be filled with joy,
    the profound joy of simple things.
    May your journey continue in peace,
    as serene as early morning dew.
    May only roses line your path,
    this is my birthday wish for you.
    Ti auguro un compleanno meraviglioso,che non si possa dimenticare. 🙂

  9. Happy Birthday! May it filled with love, kisses and wonderful blessings. I can still remember your rather unhappy face, when at 16 yrs. you told the interviewer you were underage and couldn’t travel alone. I thought at the time, how quickly those years will pass….and here you are, legal! Twenty one is a special time, but oh how well you have made those past 5 yrs. fly. May this day just be another new beginning with many, many more to come! OXOX

  10. Kelly, this is just wonderful! Your video and music are superb…such a beautiful, classy song for such a handsome classy guy!

  11. Thanks, Kelly, et al, he can’t help but be pleased!! Such a special day for such a special young man! ♡

  12. You all are too kind! Thank you for your comments! I hope Gian saw and liked it too. 🙂 And thank you all for participating. No one can doubt how much he is loved. <3

  13. So very well put together Kelly. Happy birthday to the most talented BARITONE in the world. The most humble young man. The kindest heart for such a young person and of course, one of the HANDSOMEST man I have ever had the pleasure to meet and hug.
    To everyone of you on this wonderful site, I can’t wait to meet you all on 3/25/16 in Las Vegas. I’m so excited. See you all soon.
