Personally Speaking ~ Pivotal Moments!

One of our Flight Crew, Tricianna, has written us to request seeing the lyrics in English to Grande Amore.  As I was preparing this for you all to see, I was struck by the thought that three of their songs stand out to me as being Pivotal Moments in their careers.  I know there are MANY songs of theirs that  fall into this category, but these three did it for me!  Watching these videos again I am in awe at how powerful these performances were and the power was all theirs!

So Tricianna, here is your Grande Amore, as sung at the Eurovision Contest.  Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio were beams of light that night.  They looked so incredibly handsome, mature, self confident and sang with pure perfection.  They earned the Popular vote that night and for the millions of il volo lovers out there they earned the title in our minds as well.  A Pivotal Moment in their young careers.

Great Love

I close my eyes and think of her
The sweet scent of her skin
It’s a voice inside that is taking me where the sun rises
Alone, are the words
But if they should be written everything can change
No more fear I’ll want to shout this great love
Love, only love is what I feel
Tell me why when I think, I just think of you
Tell me why when I see, I see only you
Tell me why when I believe, I believe in you only great love
Tell me you never
That will never leave me
Tell me who you are
Breath of my days of love
Tell me what you know
That only me choose
Now you know
You are my only, great love
Pass springs,
Cold days and stupid to remember
Cursed nights, lost no sleep other to make love
Love, you are my love
Forever, for me.
Tell me why when I think, I just think of you
Tell me why when I love, love only you
Tell me why I live, I live only in you great love
Tell me you never
That will never leave me.
Tell me who you are
Breath of my days of love
Tell me what you know
I do not ever be wrong
Tell me you’re
What are my only, great love
 
 

O SOLE MIO

 One NEVER gets tired of seeing these adorable young boys in their American Idol debut!!  HUGE Pivotal Moment.

 

My sun (O Sole Mio)

My sun
What a beautiful thing, it’s a sunny day
The gentle breeze after the storm
The air’s so fresh, it feels like a celebration
What a beautiful thing, it’s a sunny day
But another sun,
That’s even brighter
It’s my own sun
That’s upon your face!
When night comes and the sun sets down
I almost start to feel blue
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun sets down
But another sun,
That’s even brighter
It’s my own sun
That’s upon your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s upon your face
It’s upon your face
But another sun,
That’s even brighter
It’s my own sun
That’s upon your face!

It’s now or never

(the English/Elvis version)

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that you’re near
the time is here at last.

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we’ll meet again this way

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

 

 

IL MONDO

And who can forget the time they sang  Il Mondo,  at the 2012 Nobel Peace Concert.  This was a huge honor for them and a spectacular way to showcase them to the world!

 

The World

Tonight, My Love
I am not thinking of you anymore
I open my eyes
for the whole world
The world
goes around as usual
 
Spiraling, The world goes around
in limitless space
where the Love has just begun
where the love has been over
where people are happy or hurt
as me
 
The World
Until now I look at you
I am lost in your silence world
I am nothing beside you
 
The World
never stops
Night is always following day
And the daylight will come
 
Tonight, My Love
I am not thinking of you anymore
I open my eyes
for the whole world
The world
goes around as usual
 
Spiraling, The world goes around
in limitless space
where the Love has just begun
where the love has been over
where people are happy or hurt
as me
 
The World
Until now I look at you
I am lost in your silence world
I am nothing beside you
 
The World
never stops
Night is always following day
And the daylight will come
 
The World
never stops
Night is always following day
And the daylight will come
 
Tonight, My Love
I am not thinking of you anymore
About you

We know they will continue to experience many more pivotal moments  and we will be right here loving them and watching them every step of the way!

Un Amore Cosi Grande

Daniela sent us this wonderful sneak preview of the movie the guys have been working on.

By now we all know that ILVOLO will take part in a movie entitled UN AMORE COSI GRANDE, which will be released in 2018.

This article was published a few weeks ago, that speaks of the plot of the film.

From the giornal THE ARENA

1-unamorecosi

The protagonist is Vladimir, a young Russian who lives with expedients to keep himself and the mother who has been a great soprano.

His mother convinces him to go to Verona in search of his father.

In Verona Vladimir performs his singing talent and conquers young Veronica and attracts the attention of ILVOLO manager who is looking for a debutant to launch in the trio concerts.

Of course the story will be much woven, and will be shot in St. Petersburg.

Un Amore Cosi Grande, is a film that wants to relaunch the lyrics to bring young people closer to this world up to now unknown.

Tell precisely of the “grande amore” of the protagonist for the work but also for his mother and his girlfriend.

The music of the movie will be drawn from the operas as well as some songs IL VOLO.
On the set, between a slate and the other, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, gave some explanation about their role “Recite next to professionals, but in a role that favors us because we remain Il Volo, essentially doing what is better: singing”.

Behind the shots appear at ease. “The lights we are accustomed,” say in choir boys de Flight, those of the stage of the Arena then know them very well, in fact you have organized various concerts, the last last 19 and 20 May.

Il Volo Show On TV?

tvbloglogotwitter

It might be.  In an article found on an Italian TV blog,  http://www.blogtv.it , it appears that Il Volo has become the muse for a fictional television series that is in the works.

The article can be found here —> http://www.tvblog.it/post/548911/fiction-italiane-2014-15-virna-lisi-in-e-la-mia-famiglia-alessio-boni-in-la-catturandi , and the paragraph for consideration is copied and translated by Bing below:

Nuova Fiction Mediaset: secondo Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni la Ciao Ragazzi di Claudia Mori sarebbe già al lavoro per realizzare una fiction dedicata a Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone e Ignazio Boschetto, i tre tenorini che dopo aver partecipato a Ti lascio una canzone hanno creato il gruppo Il volo, ottenendo successo in tutto il mondo.

New Fiction Mediaset: according to Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni , Claudia Mori would already be working to create a fiction dedicated to Gianluca Ginoble and Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, the three tenorini that after participating in Ti lascio una canzone have created the group, gaining success around the world.
Hmmm….we might have to keep an eye out to see what happens with this…  😉  Thanks to All About Il Volo for the heads up.  🙂
Moscow Welcomes Il Volo
Il Volo took their first trip to Russia this week to be guest stars of a show with the great, Toto Cutugno.  By all accounts that I have read, Mr. Cutugno is well-loved and respected throughout the country, selling out shows even now at the age of 70.  I’d imagine being a part of one of his shows has given our guys even more exposure; how exciting for them!
ceciliacesario
Joining them as quest stars was Ms. Ceclia Cesario, also from Italy.  To learn more about her, you can visit her website, http://www.ceciliacesario.it.
It appears that this concert was highly anticipated in Moscow, going so far as to hold an open rehearsal for the press only before the show, which is mentioned in an article
There was also a TV interview conducted and aired on Russian TV, which can be seen
Il Volo and Toto

As usual in the Il Volo fandom, there are pictures galore among the many fan sites.  Is anyone surprised by that?  We know IlVolovers rock!  Please check them out and comment below to let us know some of your favorites.  🙂

There are also a smattering of videos available as well, the best of which have links provided here.  I hope that they let you feel as if you were a part of it.  Please enjoy and thank those groups and individuals that took time to share them with us!
