I wanted to give a quick update on our e-mail situation.
Everyone that responded to the test should have gotten an e-mail reply from me. If you didn’t, please comment below. I found that we had problems with people’s e-mails going directly to the Junk folder, for one thing, and some email addresses were on the Blocked list for another. I have no idea how that happened, but we hope we have corrected it, and I apologize.
Going forward, all e-mails that come to our In Box should receive an automated response that lets you know it was received and that someone will be responding to you shortly. Sandi and Angelica will be monitoring the e-mails and will get a formal response to you as soon as they are able.
If you do not get an automated response to your e-mail, that is an indication that that we did not receive the e-mail at all. Please reach out to us in a comment here on the website if that happens, as Dee and Marion will be monitoring those, and they can get in touch with me or Marie personally.
On a second issue, several of you have mentioned that you are not getting the email notifications from the website as you have in the past. I spoke with WordPress today, and on the particular examples I gave them, those individuals were not listed among our e-mail subscribers. Again, I don’t know how that happened, and I apologize. If you have gotten e-mails in the past and are no longer receiving them, please sign up again. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail from WordPress (please look in your Spam/Junk folder if it doesn’t come to your In Box). In the e-mail will be a link that you have to click to confirm that you want to receive e-mails from us.
If you sign up and get a message stating that you are already, please check your Spam/Junk folder to see if our e-mails are going in there. If they are, you can use the settings within your e-mail account to change that. If you get a message that you are signed up and the messages are not going to your Spam/Junk folder, please e-mail us, and I will ask WordPress to look into your case individually.
Thanks for being patient, and I hope this works for everyone.

Hi Kelly or Marie, I started to compose my personal story of my devotion to our boys, but now I have second thoughts.
Like most of us I first met them on PBS Miami. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing. Such talent. Such youth. Anyway, I focused in on Piero and have been with him ever since.
He bears a remarkable resemblence to a son I once had. I’m not maudlin. I feel warm and fuzzy and joyful whenever I see him. The similarities are inumerable. It gives me great joy. Piero will rise to great heights and be one of the great tenors of our day, but I wont be here to see it. With that said, I am grateful to have been in on the beginning.
All three of them have touched my heart, but Piero has also touched my soul. It is not only his glorious voice which is God given by way of his grampa, but his whole persona. I will kill to get to see them in concert this year. This time with M. and G. I will melt. No need for kleenex. The men in white will be here soon enough. Thanks for this opportunity to express myself. Love to my sisters in the flight crew.
Ciao Joanie G

Thank you for opening up your heart to The Crew. You are amazing. Piero has already “risen to great heights” in our book and we are, indeed, here to see it. When the guys in white come, I wouldn’t mind going with you. You would be great company.
See you at the M&G! ~Marie
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
