Gina sent in this amazing video from Piero from yesteryear! Not only does the song caress the heart, but it shows such creativity on his part. I remember when this came out. We were all just blown away.
Gina, this got me thinking that many of our readers may not have been following the guys back then, so I am including some other priceless videos from the archives. I remember spending hours on Youtube looking for any and all videos of theirs back in the day. As much as I love seeing all of their new songs, I also love taking a step back to relive some very special moments in time.
This next video is before Il Volo sang, Maria, as a group. Gianluca sang Maria as a solo and he owned that song! Before the song, Ignazio and Piero are bantering back and forth with how to pronounce the word, “world.”
And here we have their precious little friend, Mia. Ignazio’s mother became friends with this family through a social media site, and you will see why. The video her mother made of her singing and reacting to watching Il Volo on TV is priceless. The genuine love and affection they show for this little girl is captivating. The song is divine.
The next song, This Time, is an all time favorite as well.
More fun on the stage in Westbury, PA, before Ignazio sings Memory. He has always been known for instigating the impromptu comedy sketches with Gianluca being the straight guy, back then. Gianluca has come full circle with his comfort level on stage. But, there were times where he would look at them acting up, walk away shaking his head in humorous disbelief.
I love remembering how Ignazio had trouble standing still when songs were being sung. The music pulses through him like blood through your veins. He has good moves all the way!
I wonder if any of the people sitting in that room listening to them that day have continued to follow their stunning careers? I sure hope so.
And the rest…is history…
Thank you, Gina, for the great idea to look back at yesterday.
