Il Volo – Celebrity Reactions! (and Tanti Auguri, to the King – from our 3 Princes!)

We all know our guys have had the pleasure and honor to sing, sing to, or sing for, some very special and honored celebrities and stars.  IVPerformances, a Twitter account, has put together a really cute video of our guys with some famous people, including Barbra Streisand and the latest with Sharon Stone.  They want people to watch and share their account.  So, in honor of their hard work, here you go!  It’s on You Tube….

Good job IVPerformances – nicely done!!

Even though I know it’s staged and part of the act, it cracks me up every time I see it, when Barbra says “showoff!” to Ignazio!  Although, in this one, he sounds a little flat?  Sharon sure looks like she’s have a grand time!


As many of us know, January 8, is also the birthday of Elvis Presley!  It’s also the birthday of my first Italian crush and my dear friend’s husband!  Definitely a great day!  lol!  🙂

Here’s to you, Elvis, in honor of Gianluca’s version…this was record in Las Vegas.  It’s simple and beautiful.

 

Enjoy!

p.s.  A big Grazie Mille to Gina, for passing the IVPerformances along to Marie and I!  🙂 

Il Volo Professional ~~ Gearing Up for the Latin Billboards

Hey Everyone!

The Guys hit Miami this week, first for the taping of Sabado Gigante (we expect a full report, LeeLee!  ;D ) and then for the big party,

How exciting is this? 😀   We know Il Volo has been here before.  Last year they walked the red carpet (looking very much the part, in my humble opinion) and actually performed, receiving the only standing ovation of the night. In a tribute to Mexican singer and musician, Jose Jose, they brought down the house with a rendition of his famous, “El Triste”, a song that speaks of the deep sadness one feels at the loss of a loved one.

In case you somehow didn’t get to see or hear that awesome performance, please enjoy this sound recording (just close your eyes and feel the power) courtesy of our affiliate,

This year, Il Volo will attend the awards as nominated artists in two categories:

1.) Top Latin Albums Artist of the Year, Duo or Group against:
Calibre 50
La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho
Voz de Mando

and

2.) Latin Pop Albums Artist of the Year, Duo or Group against:
Jesse & Joy
Los Bukis
Maná.

According to Wikipedia, Mana’ is the reining winner in both categories.  Is this Il Volo’s year to take the crown?

auditions-free-logoSo if this isn’t enough excitement for the residents of Miami and Florida at large (no…I’m not bitter…not even a little bit…), there was one more very exciting opportunity available to them.  A Miami Talent Agency was hired to fill a few of the red carpet fan slots for the show.  About 70 people were chosen and will be given a ticket to the show after The Red Carpet is complete.   According to the email (which contains instructions on who should and how to submit your name, and which you can view here —> http://www.auditionsfree.com/2014/latin-music-billboard-award-show-now-casting-red-carpet-audience/  ), the talent was chosen in the week of April 8th.  Please tell me some IlVolovers made the cut!

Be sure to stay tuned on April 24th.  The show airs live at 7 pm on Telemundo.
