World-renowned vocalist Andrea Bocelli stunned his audience as he performed Elvis Presley’s iconic song, “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

In a video he posted on YouTube, the 60-year-old singer can be seen singing Presley’s hit while pianist and composer David Foster played the piano.

Bocelli delivered the knockout performance in 2006 at Lake Las Vegas Resort. Before that, Foster asked Bocelli to “pull a song out of his hat”.

The Italian tenor then walked over to the piano and gave Foster a simple F-chord to arpeggiate. The latter obliged. Bocelli then began to sing the classic Elvis tune, to the delight of Foster and the Vegas crowd.

Bocelli’s latest performances were just as awesome. Last October 12, 2018, he wowed guests at the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank with his rendition of the sacred hymn, “Panis Angelicus” and “Ave Maria”.

A month earlier, he also performed a vocal and piano duet with his son, Matteo Bocelli.

A video of that performance was released on Bocelli’s YouTube channel on September 22, 2018. The song called “Fall On Me” is a first-time duet with his son.

The song is a tribute from father to son and vice versa. In the emotional clip, the pair sings in both Italian and in English as they play individual pianos.
