I hope you are in an Italian mood today because I have a very special Italian song to share with you today.
Have you heard Alessandro Safina sing?
Yes the picture is very large...but...well...he is rather, shall I say, good looking!
I hope that Lindy Lou who blogs about her beautiful Italian life in her blog "News from Italy" enjoys today's Tuesday Tune from one of my favourite (and most gorgeous!) Italian singers!
Here is another picture....
His parents were ardent lovers of the opera, and instilled their son with this passion of theirs from the beginning and he started attending a musical academy when he was just twelve years old. At 17 years old he entered the Conservatorio di Musica 'Luigi Cherubini' in Florence and in 1989, he won the first prize at the 'Concorso Lirico Internazionale' in Mantova, a competition dedicated to Italian soprano singer Katia Ricciarelli. The prize marked the start of his career in the world of opera. His rise to stardom began in the '90s where he was discovered by the Italian pianist/composer Romano Musumarra, and the pair quickly began to record together, in an attempt to bring Safina's dream of creating a "soulful new pop opera music" to fruition. The end result was Safina's self-titled debut of September 2001.
In 2001 Safina contributed to the score of Baz Luhrmann’s film Moulin Rouge!. He performed Elton John's Your Song with Ewan McGregor.
What a voice!
