I posted these thoughts on ATIL, but felt I would share with my friends here as well. This was in regard to the ongoing concern about what appears to be a lack of promotion for Il Volo’s USA tour. I don’t disagree with that, but at the same time I find it interesting that thus far, their shows have been sellouts. I think this fact, in itself, speaks volumes about the powers of word of mouth respect for true, captivating artistry. What do you think?
I certainly do not, in any way, pretend to be knowledgeable concerning the inner workings of building Il Volo’s career. I’m simply an amazed, grateful, hence devoted follower of three extraordinary young men who have been bless with a huge bounty of talent, intelligence, kindness, and an awareness of the human heart. They are devoted to music, real music, and through that vane they possess an uncanny ability to immediately touch those hearts in such a way that your very soul responds, sometimes with tears.of undeniable joy. Why? Because it’s offered with honest love, deep humility, and passion. I can’t help but feel that their ever increasing success, lack of material promotion or not, has more to do with their inner awareness of an intended purpose for them in this world; bigger than promos or even sales. Those are the characteristics noticed and felt by their audiences. That caliber of love and devotion promotes itself. It is not dependent on promotional exposure, but instead, thrives on the subsequent renewal of compassion that is ultimately discovered within the hearts of humanity itself.
REAL, is a welcomed commodity sorely lacking in our world today; something we we are seeing less and less of. Il Volo is a wonderful, and needless to say, refreshing gift to us. A gift that is having a gigantic influence because people are searching for the “real” and positive examples. Authenticity brings hope and encouragement, something especially true for our youth. Il Volo will continue to excel in those endeavors under wise, and loving guidance of people who love and care for them; but their very nature, well, that was placed in them a long time ago. It is said that a picture speaks a thousand words. Okay, take your pictures promoters, if you will, but it is also said that actions speak louder than words (or pictures), and that is what touches the soul. Real, is an experience. Real makes the difference, and brings tears. THAT’S THE BEST PROMOTION they can get, and I can give. Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio, you are loved!
