I received this lovely letter and wanted to “Share the Love” with all of you.
What do you think Crew? Shall we let her in?
My friend Ann Scavo suggested I send you an email to tell you why I want to join the Flight Crew. Well here goes…..
For a couple of years, Ann has been talking about Il Volo. In November she told me to watch the Buon Natale special on PBS. All it took was hearing and seeing these amazing young men sing “Ave Maria”. It made me cry and like a great book, I haven’t been able to put them down since.
I grew up in an Italian home where my mom taught me to love Italian music through artists like Mario Lanza and Jerry Vale. She also loved Placido Domingo and Andrea Boccelli (who we took her to see shortly before she died). Dad was a ballroom dancer who shared with us the classics like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett. They also taught us that family is everything and a huge part of why I love Il Volo so much is that it makes me think of my parents and remember them with love, tradition and lots of smiles. They would have loved these young men who are successfully sharing their culture and beautiful voices with the world. I am in love with their music as well as their spirit, their kind souls, and the magic they seem to make all of us feel.
I look forward to the day I can meet this trio to see for myself if my observations of them is spot on. I see Piero as powerful in not only voice but personality. I see Ignazio as having an infectious personality (as we all just can’t get enough of him) and I see Gianluca as having a passionate about everything he touches, personality.
I am sure I am not telling you anything you don’t already know but I just had to share some thoughts with you about our favorite guys and how happy their music makes me feel.
Oh Lisa, you are so one of us! Welcome to the Flight Crew!
