Here is another “Finding IL Volo” story we love to read. This one was a comment on Patrizia Ciara’s post on 12/13. This Patricia (pitterpatO) has kindly given her permission to re-post it here. When I asked permission she said…
I don’t mind at all if you would re-post what I said about “the boys”. I thought there for a while that I was crazy being affected by them so much. But when I discovered the Flight Crew I knew that I was OK! I, like a lot of you, really can’t express my feelings to many others because they just don’t get it. I just had another friend this weekend say, “You’re really obsessed with these guys, aren’t you?” So I have to try really hard to “curb my enthusiasm” most of the time. Sheesh people, c’mon, I’m not stalking them or anything. LOL I just love hearing a man that can sing. My late husband, bless his heart, couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket. But he was pretty much perfect in every other way.
My choir and I went to Rome in 2007 right after Christmas and we sang at St. Peter’s twice, once for the Pope at the New Year’s Day Mass and the third time we sang was at St. Mary Major. I partied in the New Year on the Spanish Steps! Oh my Lord we had a blast! I want to go back so badly….I will one of these days. I loved Italy. I am even learning Italian so if I go back I’ll be able to speak it. I also want to be able to understand the guy’s interviews I’m listening to. It’s fun!“
I discovered Il Volo this summer while watching a live Periscope from Rome by the Italian movie director and actor, Giulio Base. He was playing their CD in his car as he drove around Rome. Everyone was asking him WHO was singing! He showed us the Il Volo Takes Flight CD. I rushed to my local library and got a copy. After listening to Il Mondo for the first time I had tears in my eyes and I was lost in their music. How can a thing like this happen? And so amazingly fast?
