Personally Speaking~Growing up with Gianluca~

GROWING UP RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES

THERE ARE ONLY TWO LASTING BEQUESTS WE CAN HOPE TO GIVE OUR CHILDREN.  ONE OF THESE IS ROOTS, THE OTHER, WINGS.

TRAVELING, DREAMING, SINGING.  THREE SIMPLE WORDS THAT ENVELOPE THE MEANING OF MY LIFE.  TRAVEL CHANGED ME.  I AM NO LONGER THE SAME PERSON AFTER SEEING THE MOON ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD.  DREAMING IS CREATIVITY AND IMAGINATION AND ONLY THOSE WHO DO NOT STOP DOING IT CAN TOUCH THE SKY.  SINGING IS MY LIFE…HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE…MY LIFE!

TO LAUGH OFTEN AND MUCH; TO WIN THE RESPECT OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE AND THE AFFECTION OF CHILDREN…TO LEAVE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE…TO KNOW EVEN ONE LIFE HAS BREATHED EASIER BECAUSE YOU HAVE LIVED.  THIS IS TO HAVE SUCCEEDED.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Gianluca, you have grown into such a fine young man with morals and values that simply shine.  We  are so happy singing is your life as we look forward to years of hearing your amazing voice.  At your young age you have succeeded both personally and professionally.  Already, many a life has been affected so positively…because you have lived.

  1. Ah Jane! How beautifully done!  Your quotes couldn’t be more appropriate.   By the time I got to the Emerson quote I had a huge lump in my throat.  You are so right on with that one!  Perfectly describes his effect on us and a whole lot of the rest of the world.  And those pictures….Oh Jane those pictures!

    Some of you will disagree,  but I see Gianluca as the baby.   OK… My baby.   To me he is the most sensitive and sweetest of the three.   I have a desire to nurture and protect this amazingly talented,  beautiful young man.   I want to cuddle and hug him and never let go!  Guess I love him a lot.

    1. Marie I have to agree with you!! I think Gianluca is the most sensitive one out of the three!! He is amazing and so young to have that beautiful voice!! ❤️😍😂

    2. Marie, I agree with you. All 3 are just as sincere as the day is long. You see it in their eyes, feel it in their hugs and sense it when they speak. But being the youngest, I know what you mean about protecting him. Bless all of their dear parents for being by their side especially while they travel!

  2. Thank you, Jane, this is so beautifulul & touches my heart !! I agree, Gianluca is the most sensitive! I always just want to hug him too! He is a wonderful, talented, loving, amazing young man!

  3. sensitivity and compassion shows in Gianluca when he tears up so easily. He show us his heart readily. He is a wonder. I hope he never changes. So far fame hasn’t done so.

  4. Whenever I see that photo of Gianluca and Ernesto hugging their Nonno it about takes my breath away. Whenever I see Gianluca reaching out to to touch Piero and Ignazio I smile. He is without fail the one who lives by touch, by his signs of affection and camaraderie. I often think American men are afraid to touch unless its more like a slap on the back or a firm handshake. I don’t know when I last saw my two brothers be that affectionate and they are men in their fifties. Italian men have no such problem and Gianluca is a prince of affection easily and warmly given.

  5. Jane, I’m all a puddle right now!
    Gianluca’s heart shows me what is possible on this beautiful planet of ours.
    These photos and quotes are beyond perfect. Thank you so much!

    Love to all, with special gratitude to you, Gian!
    Jeanine

  6. I’m a puddle right now too. Whenever I hear that voice, let alone watch him while he is singing, he just tugs at my heart. He feels every song he sings with that beautiful voice. I’m so glad I finally got my hug from the Abruzzo Prince.

  7. When we were at the Fan Faire, Gian took a selfie with me, and all the time I had my arm around his neck( not long enough) I got that warm and fuzzy feeling from him.
    He’s like a big teddy bear!

  8. It is now my turn to be smiling!! Thank you Jane, I love the pictures and quotes about and from Gianluca.
    Is it at all possible to inform them to see and read what we at the Fleight Crew print and discuss of them?

    1. Ineke, great to hear from you!
      I posted about it on Twitter with a direct tweet to Gian, but maybe someone else can get through if I didn’t.
      from @jrd1776

      Love and delight,
      Jeanine

  9. Thank you all for the wonderful comments. Yes, I say that all the time that I hope they come to this site and see what wonderful things are being said about them. This “global room” holds such tremendous love and admiration for them!

  10. Jane, Thank you for the beautiful pictures of our Il Volo “baby”. I went to 2 M/G’s and both times he came to me with open arms and the warmest hug. I love all three boys equally but he is the sweetest, warmest of them. Now I have to go clean up my puddle of tears too. Gianluca, ourbaby, our “Prince of Affection ” May God watch over and keep you.

  11. Thank you Jane. Gianluca does feel things deeply and is also tender and romantic. He has the sweetest smile and expresses himself so well. He does an amazing job starting most songs and sings with such passion.

    1. Thank you for the kind words Marie. One question: What did you mean “Look at our twitter, above left” Does Flight Crew have a Twitter ???

      1. ARRR Marie, you have me dead in the water with that last remark! No wonder I did not see the “twitter.. above left” for tis me own left eye that I see but nearly blind. Tis a tale to be told someday! But ye see ya scallywag, a patch does not become my winsome pirate good looks. All the same it does not stop me from enjoying Piero’s winsome good looks!

  12. Eurovision 2016. So the price of the jury is for Australia and the price for televoting is for Russia. ( For interest, Poland third in televoting and last for the jury.) Winner is Jamala from Ukraine, song 1944, who took victory with 534 points.In second place was the favourite of the juries Australia with 511 points, Dami Im’s Sound Of Silence, and Russia came third with 491 points, You Are The Only One sung by Sergey Lazarev. Viewers across Europe voted for the best TOP 10 (without jury).
    10th place – Lithuania
    9th place – France
    8th place — Austria
    7th place – Armenia
    6th place – Sweden
    5th place – Bulgaria
    4th place – Australia
    3rd place – Poland
    2nd place – Ukraine
    1st place – Russia
    Nothing new under the sun, again decided jury about winner. Politics does not belong to music and the arts.This competition is not at all about the voices, opinions of people ! 😦 This year special guest was Justin Timberlake,among others he also sang his new song.

  13. Thank you Jane, the pictures just capture Gianluca’s soul…. You words explain who he is… He is the soft side of Il Volo… Each have a very unique and loving personality, and each are very different… Gianluca is the sensitive one, easily moved by emotion and he does not hide it… You did a beautiful job in portraying our Gentle Gianluca Ginoble…
