Lots of words could be used to describe the faces of the men of Il Volo...strong, masculine, sexy, handsome, expressive. But the one that so often comes to my mind is SWEET. Now they might not appreciate that one. They would probably prefer one that is more macho. But to me it is the greatest compliment. SWEET imbibes tender, caring, trustworthy…someone you would like to know…invites closeness and trust.
Now I know that they aren’t always sweet. They are human. They have their times of not-so-sweet emotions, but the point is that when they do look SWEET, it’s the SWEETEST ever.
When do they show that expression?
With parents and grandparents…
With fans and children
Think of Ignazio with the puppy kiss…how SWEET was that? And when the little girl sang Volare with them, bringing GG to tears with his sweetness? Piero touching his heart as he gazed at the audience after a standing ovation?
There are probably dozens of examples of their SWEET expressions, but you get it…they give new meaning to SWEET. And don’t confuse SWEET with “namby-pamby.” It takes a strong man to be comfortable with SWEET. It says, “I am confident enough in my masculinity that I can show a softer side.”
