PEOPLE WHO LEAD THE WAY IN FASHION OR IDEAS.
Our Il Volo guys are unique in many ways. They could probably be considered “trend setters.” It takes a certain amount of courage to be a trend setter. It requires confidence and self assurance to step out from the crowd and follow personal convictions.
TREND SETTERS IN THE MUSIC FIELD
When they were first put together as a trio, they, with some wise guidance, chose to follow a course of action not popular at the time–that of promoting bel canto as their choice of music style to launch their careers. Who was doing bel canto in the realm of popular music at that time? That’s right–no one. There was no assurance that the public was ready and willing to accept it. But they set out bravely bringing this music to a world that was not accustomed to hearing its unique style of beauty, and interestingly enough, they brought it first to America–the land of “rap” and “hip hop.” Three young boys in a foreign land courageously standing on the stage facing audiences who might or might not see what was there in front of them.
Trend setters? Their talent and charisma were enough to win over audiences of thousands, raising musical standards to new levels and winning hearts over to their kind of music all over the world.
TREND SETTERS IN QUALITY OF CHARACTER
They were seen as trend setters in the realm of young men with whom courtesy, kindness, generosity and morality are primary characteristics. Their clean-cut appearance and wholesome attitudes are welcome trends in today‘s society. How refreshing to see their level of potential trend-setting alive and well in today‘s music scene. Their fast rising popularity gives credulity to it’s validity as having brought out the appeal of beauty and quality in the field of popular music.
TREND SETTERS IN STYLE
The Il Volo guys don’t rely on elaborate costuming to impress their audiences. They are usually seen in black, gray or blue–simple casual outfits, depending on personality and performance to captivate the fans’ attention.
When they do go dressy for certain events, it’s in high fashion (Armani?) with style and quality with the accent on dignity and respect for the viewers.
However, to show that they can interject a sense of fun when appropriate, note their recent appearance wearing white tennis shoes with their “dressed up” attire.
TREND SETTERS IN THE HEARTS OF THE FANS
These young men have set new heights of admiration in the hearts of the thousands of fans who have come to love and respect them. To know them is to love them–for many of us at a level higher than ever before felt for a performer, having become as real and personal and close as family members. They are setting trends of quality that we can only hope will be examples for others to follow.
