SINGER OR ACTOR?? by Daniela

There is little news regarding Il Volo.

Scrolling through various publications, I found this post by Maura Pucci really very funny and particular and, of course, she talks about Gianluca!!

Singer 01

I am in the beautiful garden of Santa Severa, a seaside town near Rome, with my historical friends from my holidays, engaged in pleasant conversations. I have my tablet with me, hoping to give it a peek from time to time …

As my most assiduous Facebook friends may have noticed, I have not been present on the internet very much this month of August. Luckily, in a moment in which speeches languish, I have the possibility and I immediately go to Instagram and the screen lights up …. immensely!

It appears to me immediately, the last photo of Gianluca at the sea, as always a dazzling image of Italic and Mediterranean beauty.

Singer 02

I’m used to his breathtaking images that I have by the dozen by now. Personally, I don’t like to talk too much about his beauty.

Everything that could be said about him in this regard has been said by others, even that he resembles a Greek divinity, or Michelangelo’s David ….

I have always preferred to speak of his voice, even if, immodestly, I consider myself sufficiently expert and rational to evaluate CLEARLY, that is with the brain and not with the heart, both one and the other.

These are my premises to get to tell you how it ended …. In a few seconds I decided to seize an unrepeatable opportunity for fun. My friends know Il Volo well, because I’ve been talking to them for years. They follow Il Volo, when they appear on TV (and they automatically think of me: inevitable!).

But they have always rightly seen Gianluca in other clothes, elegant or casual, but never …. without clothes, that is in the version of a “mermaid” 😁😁

I want to amaze them, with … special effects, let’s call them that, and see closely the effect it does ..! 😂😂

Singer 03

I extend to Agnese, the closest friend, my tablet with the beautiful photo. She opens her eyes wide and says, “Damn! And who is this ACTOR??” She looks at me.

I don’t answer, assuming a Sphinx-like expression.

The others interrupt the chatter and look at us curiously. Agnese resumes the exam and adds:  “Do you know who remembers me vaguely? Your “Gianluca from Il Volo!”

I don’t understand if the photo really reminds her vaguely, or if she guessed it and jokes, slyly, knowing my weakness ..

Singer 04

Is it him? Of course, it’s him!

My tablet passes into other hands and the general conclusion is this: 

 He is WASTED TO BE A SINGER.

Perhaps in the future he could be enticed from singing to acting  … A request has already been received and rejected due to too many commitments. But if he had to face this new experience, stopping singing, it makes me think that he would be WASTED TO BE AN ACTOR. 

Time will tell…..

Singer 05

I laughed, reading this story by Maura, imagining the scene, of her proudly showing the photo of Gianluca!!

Grandma Maura, you are really cool!!😘

And here is my opinion.

I don’t see anything wrong if Gian were to do some part as an actor, but it has to be a decent film, not necessarily a film where there are songs.

However, this must not affect the Il Volo trio. Il Volo is the priority and remains. All three have always stated that there may be small single projects, but the group remains intact.

I also think it really wasted that such a beautiful voice, like Gianluca’s, is silenced for an acting career. 

Both things can coexist !! (such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra …. and more).😉

I await your opinions!
