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!

REMEMBER?

I know, now you need to hear them sing some more. Here’s what they sounded like in 2011.  You may have heard this song once or twice.  
By the way, take note of how many hits this video has garnered.  That’s right, over 30 MILLION! 

FYI, their Grande Amore Video has been viewed 86,744,137 times.  How’s that for three young guys from small Italian villages?

Have a great week-end all!

P.S.  update on the kid with the curls.

November 9, 2016 ~~ Vale 97.5 Argentina

 

Flashback (way back) Friday

These two video’s are just too cute not to mention too sweet!  If you are diabetic I would recommend waiting 30 minutes between videos.  

This is one of their very first video’s.  Back then I watched it over and over again.  Unlike now, there weren’t too many video’s to choose from.

Here’s one from around then that I don’t remember.  Cheeks, curls and spiky hair.  Gotta love ’em.

Il Volo Professional ~~ Il Volo and Etihad Together Again; San Fransisco

Yay!  Ignazio’s back!  We’re so glad you’re back in the US, too…though we are sorry about the jet lag.

I’ve been out for a little bit, but glad to be back just as The Guys get to the US for two events.

Paired once again with Etihad Airways, Il Volo has come back to the US to celebrate the airline’s new direct flights to San Fransisco and Dallas.  Seeing Piero’s business class ticket recently, I’m guessing he, Gianluca and Ignazio didn’t travel in these accommodations:

Truly the lap of luxury…

but, the digs for the flight over seemed quite comfy…

and the view breathtakingly tranquil…

Morning in San Fransisco is just a beautiful, and aside from the jet lag, the guys settled in.

(Oh…the next time we’re on vacation and we think there is no way to be healthy and exercise…nope.  Not gonna fly.   😉   )

The first gala took place on Tuesday, December 9, at San Fransisco City Hall, with many prominent and important leaders of the business community  and artists in attendance.

Friday, December 12, is the date for the Dallas event, and The Guys will be on their way tomorrow.

Between Etihad Airways and the City of Dallas, I’m not sure which is more excited…

But does it matter?  Il Volo wins no matter what.  I wonder how many more fans they will gain this trip?   😉

Il Volo Professional ~~ The Guys Go Home, Part 5: Marostica

Hey, Everyone!

I know this is a little late–I’m sorry.   It seems like the weeknight concert has only affected me.    😉   Lots of pictures out…some video…

I can’t believe another tour is over for The Guys.   So Sad.  But with a sold out crowd, they went out with a bang — and fireworks!
