On September 22, the Italian classical singer not only celebrated his 60th birthday but also released a duet with his son Matteo where they performed a special song, ‘Fall on Me.’ In this first time collaboration, they paid a beautiful tribute to their relationship as father and son as the 21-year-old Matteo started the duet off in English and Andrea soon joined in with the Italian chorus.

Over the years Bocelli had his share of unusual duets, a recent duet being with pop star Ariana Grande as they came together and performed a single from Bocelli’s album Cinema, named ‘E Piu Ti Penso.’  The song is in Italian, however, their voices told the universal story. An unforgettable collaboration between them as their voices flow seamlessly in melancholy and romance, complimenting each other beautifully in this song about love and longing.
