I’m Smiling Because …. 12/8/2013

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a little while since we last posted this feature.  We’ve had a lot of exciting things going on and holidays and coverage of the guys as they make another promotional run in the US.  But, I miss reading the comments, and I think we might need reasons to smile this week, so here we go.  🙂

We’re smiling because Connie, (Piratesorka) has shared her story about what Il Volo has meant in her life.  Head over to the Experience section to read, “My Il Volo Discovery.” 

And we’re smiling through our tears that the time has come for the guys to finally return home for a well earned, more than deserved and much needed rest from touring.  We’re smiling because it’s time for them to get hugs from their mamas, spend time with the brothers and sisters that have missed them so and to hang out with their friends and just be “one of the guys” in time for Christmas.

Thank you, Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio for including us in this incredible journey you have taken in the last four years.  Thank you for giving so much of yourselves–your talent, your time, your personalities, personal moments in your lives and so much love for your fans.  It touches us more than we can say, but we hope that all the hugs, kisses, gifts and well-wishes we’ve sent show you a little bit.

And please say “Thank you,” to all of your family and friends… everyone that loves you so well, supports you so much and shares you so openly with us.  I imagine it isn’t always easy to let you go when it is time, but we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for the gift of their loved ones they have shared with us.

Be safe, be happy, and we can hardly wait until you come back!

Why are you smiling?

The Angels at Disney World

TeacupsGianDisneyDec2013They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we can be sure Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca had a few laughs at Disney World!  We are so happy the guys had some fun during their working visit, yet we are so disappointed that most Il Volo fans had no notice about the performance. There is no doubt many more of us would have been at Disney World to cheer them on!

The good news is, IL VOLO performed Feliz Navidad during the filming of Disney’s Christmas Day Parade at the Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World. ABC will air the parade on Christmas Day. The parade will also air on the American Forces Network and in Canada on CBC.

Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero on Disney World:

“Gianluca Il Volo  @GianGinoble     One of the most beautiful days in my life spending time at @WaltDisneyWorld in Orlando ! Thanks #waltdisney for your wise imagination!”

“ignazio boschetto  @IBoschetto   Buonanotte #orlando it’s been a long day but sooooo funny…!!! Kisses..!!”

“Piero Barone Il Volo  @piero_barone     If You Can Dream It You Can Do It – Walt Disney #DisneyWorld http://instagram.com/p/hm_pFzkzDq/ ”

We’re so thankful the guys keep us informed of most of their activities via Twitter!  Thank you Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca for all you do!

But management, you let us down this time, in the future would you please let us know where the guys will be making appearances?  Il Volo fans would reaaaaaally appreciate a little advanced notice, we would like to support our favorite singers!

Thanks to the guys and IlVoloMusic for the pictures and to my editors, Marie and Kelly.
