Personally Speaking ~ The Il Volo Mystique ~ Mary Bohling ~



What is it about Il Volo that has taken them to such heights of success….has endeared them to thousands of people world-wide…has impressed musically savvy people with the quality of their voices?  Is it the

“Il Volo Mystique?”

Example #1CHARISMA  There is no doubt that they exude oodles of charisma.

Watching them in concert we  can feel its esoteric power coming across the stage and hitting us full on.  It’s what some have referred to as “love at first sight.”




Example #2-CHARM  Are we charmed by them?  We are absolutely drawn in by their beauty, smiles, sweet expressions, warmth, and of course the magnificent voices.




Examples #3 and 4APPEAL AND ALLURE  These two synonyms both include “the power to attract” and “to captivate.”  How appropriate is that?   Think of the thousands of fans that have been attracted to the various venues like Verona for concerts.  And haven’t we all been captivated by them and happily so?




Example #5  AN AURA surrounding something or someone that makes the person or thing seem very intriguing.  While we love our guys for their honest, down-to-earth ways, we also feel the presence of that special aura that is part of who they are.




We know that they give credit to God for the talent that has taken them on this journey, and there is a spiritual quality to the mission they have set for themselves–a spiritual aspect that has enabled them to make a difference in so many peoples lives.  The combination of the components of humility, naturalness, gratitude and magical allure all together make up

      1. Yep we’re all looking forward to the next concert or where we can get to see them. As far as making the most of it he would probably have to get security to force my hands open behind his head & then he could run out the door. Then he wold probably run the next time he saw me & I would have botched it for good
