Yes, I know it’s been a little while since Gian’s birthday, just about a month to be exact! Thought we could use a little party to perk us up, while waiting for their new CD and movie to come out!
Due to various other parties being booked on Feb 11, we had our Gianluca celebration on Feb 10, instead! It was our 4th annual party at Antonio’s, celebrating Gian’s birthday. Can you believe it was 3 years ago, that we celebrated on their Sanremo night of honor?
Our little corp group of six were there, along with Barb from Sterling Heights. Due to this rough flu season, as well as the Fri – Sun snowstorm, several couldn’t make it. We missed those that could not make it, especially Magdalena, from Toledo; Barb, from Westland; and Betty, from New Orleans!!
We met about 5p at Antonio’s in Dearborn Heights – our favorite haunt for Gian’s birthday! 🙂 As always, there was good food, conversation, cake, and lovely presents from Donna.
We even had a surprise, special guest – Mama Rita!! We saw her when we met there at Christmas time and told her we’d be back for Gian’s birthday. She must have seen us on the reservation list, as she made a point of stopping by our table to say hello. We invited her back to share dessert with us. We went on our way to eating, drinking, and opening our presents… We saw Mama flitting around the restaurant in her hat and scarf and had to ask the waitress to send her over for cake. She said she thought she had left. But we waited patiently and there she was!! She graciously joined us for cake and sat down at our table for a little while. She was definitely the “hostess with the mostest” as she offered us limoncello or Sambuca, and cappuccino or espressos!We graciously accepted both offers! I have to say, it was one of the best caps I had ever had! 🙂
Again, it was a lovely evening and we were honored with such a special guest at our table!
We were lucky, the snow had pretty much stopped by the time we had left. We did get a wallop that Friday before! I think we did get nearly 6 to 8 inches. Spring is right around the corner now and we are already planning our party for Piero.
If you live in the Detroit area, everyone is welcome!! Let’s make some new friends and fans! 🙂
Tanti Auguri!! Next stop, Piero! June 24! Can you believe our beloved Piero will be a quarter century old? Hey, he’s catching up to us!! 🙂
In these days there was Gianluca’s birthday. All the fan pages were invaded by beautiful wishes that started from all our hearts. Certainly there is so much love for this sweet boy. One of these comments has attracted me a lot, it is written by Maura Pucci who is a big fan of him, she is 84 years old.
On the occasion of his 23rd birthday…
In 2009 he immediately hit my imagination. Indeed, it struck me straight to the heart.
I was already a grandmother of ten grandchildren, two of them roughly his age. I was disconcerted, but also bewitched, by his deep voice, coming, incredibly, from a boy with an angelic face and dreamy eyes.
Almost nine years have passed and his voice has taken over time all the nuances that the age, still unripe, still not allowed. A versatile voice, so many different and easily distinguishable voices.
I think of the amazing WIRE OF VOICE that concludes the first verse of Notte Stellata, tenuous and subtle as a sigh, to WHISPERED PARTS of many of his interpretations, but, at the same time, to the DRAMATIC and THEATRICAL voice of Aranjuez. I think about the CARESSING and LIGHT voice with which he tackles the beginning of many songs, at the SOFT and SENSUAL voice of a true crooner, but also at the AGGRESSIVE voice of Delilah; I think of the POWERFUL and JOKING voice of Rossini’s Dance, the HOT and PASSIONATE of Musica Proibita, the POWERFUL and TRIUMPHAL of the “Vincerò!” by Nessun dorma. And I can not forget that DEEP and SOLEMN of the religious and / or Christmas songs, to which it gives the indispensable touch of majesty and sacredness. These are his voices … from concert. I add that CHARGE OF RHYTHM AND SWING, exhibited till now in particular interpretations outside the stage.
So many voices for a chameleonic singer, as was defined by an expert, an American vocal coach, who, after praising the excellent VOCALITY, added << … His voice is a tool >> More than singing, Gianluca interprets. Because he sings with all of himself, with his eyes, with the expression of his face, with the movements of his hands, sometimes even with the posture of the body. In one word, with FEELING. Does not give the feeling of doing a job, but a mission: to transfer to those who listen to the passion for music that accompanies him since he was a child. He brings on stage all the qualities that distinguish him in private life. Always in pursuit of perfection, he is PROFESSIONAL AND SIGNORY in behavior, but willing to “let go” when necessary; CHEERFUL AND SMILING, sometimes also VIVACY, never too exuberant, SPIRITUS, with measure, CONFIDENTIAL, but not as timid as it used to be, AFFECTIVE AND AVAILABLE with the fans. Even in private life, this is the quality that connotes it in every circumstance. It is in fact a boy ROMANTIC, SWEET, TENERO, CHARGE OF AFFECTIVITY, towards family members, friends, children, the disabled, and always AVAILABLE with everyone, even with the fans who visit him at home in his rare moments rest. Finally, I would like to underline it, HE is SINCERELY MODEST. I have not forgotten what he said in an interview, which, despite having had idols that sing, since childhood, and still having them, he found it hard to believe that he, in turn, became an idol for many people. This is “my” Gianluca, these are the qualities that I personally perceive in him: a son, a brother, a nephew, an ideal friend, beyond his indisputable qualities of singer and performer. Happy birthday, my boy! I wish you all the best in the world.
Here is also this! (works only in Italian) translation G rande Amore – Great Love I ncantevole sorriso – Lovely smile A nimo sensibile – Sensitive soul N aturalmente elegante – Naturally elegant L uce nel suo sguardo – Light in your look U nica dolcezza – Unique sweetness C arezzevole timbro – Caressing stamp A rmonia nella sua voce – Harmony in the voice G entilezza innata – Innocent kindness I deale amico – Ideal friend N on solo attraente – Not just attractive O cchi che parlano – Eyes that speak B ello anche “dentro ” – Beautiful also “inside” L ineamenti perfetti – Perfect features E ccezionale veramente – Truly exceptional
………really beautiful words wrote Maura for Gianluca, but you have understood who is the American vocal coach of which she speaks?
Thank you Daniela for sending this beautiful story. I’m wondering if it is Myron she may be referring to? 🙂
Time is flying as always, and it won’t be too long before we will be wishing Gian a happy birthday. I will be updating the previous post with the names of the people we have received messages from. If you would like to send one but don’t have our e-mail address, here it is again:
Daniela was kind enough to find this article and translate it for us here! We already knew it was going to be Latin/Spanish and geared toward the Latin crowd, but I know we will love it anyway! Spanish is actually easier to understand than Italian and we know the guys will put their heart and soul into it, as always and will have a lot of fun making this one! Here is translation from Daniela! Grazie mille! or should I say – Muchas gracias! 🙂
Today is published by Optimagazine this article about the new album of IL VOLO.
THE NEW ALBUM OF IL VOLO WILL BE A POP REVOLUTION: THE FIRST CLUES ON THE RELEASE DATE IN 2018
It will be released in 2018 with the promise of a big pop revolution: IL VOLO is already working on the new unedited album.
Begin to leak the first clues to the new album of IL Volo, which will be totally pop-kind as they had anticipated in recent months, during the World Night Tour – A Tribute to the Three Tenors started from Vienna on April 21st.
The lucky tour has touched several European and Italian cities, and then landed on the American continent. Since September, the group has resumed the tour in Latin America, and is now working on the new pop album designed for the public and the Latin market. Produced by Emilio Estefan, husband of celebrity Gloria Estefan, the new album Il Volo will almost certainly be released by 2018, for which the three boys have been searching for melodies and lyrics, all in a newer popular dress. And from the words of the three tenors we really have to expect a great revolution!
“It will be a new pop project and we’ll surprise you, maybe there will be something with Ermal Meta and Tiziano Ferro, but we’ll see.”
Although they had expressed the desire for a break from the stages, Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble left clues that make it clear that they were already in the studio to work on the new album of unpublished, but without hurry. “We will publish the new project when it is ready, we have no deadlines,” said Piero Barone.
At the moment, the band is devoting to the next album, and the world tour will resume in late November for the last two live concerts in Japan: November 28 will perform in Tokyo, and December 1 at Kawasaki.
The Magic Night Tour – Tribute to the Three Tenors has brought the latest record project by Michele Torpedine to the stage, which honors the show “I Tre Tenori”: Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras and Placido Domingo, who participated in the album. Both the record and the tour have hit a huge hit all over the world with numerous dates sold out.
(Thank you to Kristine Kelly for the photo from the PBS 2016 meet/greet!)
Ciao Ignazio. We wish you so much happiness on your Birthday. Your voice and personality charm everyone. We appreciate all your hard work and dedication to developing that fabulous voice of yours. You have grown so much since we first saw you on American Idol and have been devoted ever since. We saw you in Minneapolis this year and immediately made arrangements to see you in Rome in May. I came in my wheelchair with my little service dog. It was the most amazing celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. We cannot thank you enough for all you are giving to the world. America loves you. Blessings to you and also Gianluca and Piero for working so hard to spread your love everywhere. May you have many happy Birthdays. ~~ Dr. Jay and Victoria Wilson

Bing Images Ignazio 2 request for greetings for Ignazio’s birthday 8/31/17
It’s hard to believe that we’re coming into Fall. Already … I’m not a happy camper … about that… really. No, really; I’m not.
It’s a good thing that the season is all about Ignazio, then, because wishing him a happy birthday cheers me right up!
His big day is only 4 weeks away, and it was time for his birthday post. You know the drill…
Send your birthday greeting to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by the evening of October 3rd. If you send your message and don’t receive an automated message, and then a personal confirmation from me with 48 hours of sending your message, please reach out to us via comment to this post.
Also…I need a little help…
Finding music for the birthday videos is always a process. I’m always worried about finding something each guy will love as well as something that is meaningful and can help tell their story. Will you help me? Post your ideas for music in the comments below. If I use your song, I will add your name to the video credits. Thank you!
And I’m sorry, Ignazio. I didn’t mean to cover your post in Disney Fairies… let me close with this:
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
