Andrea Bocelli joined his handsome son for an unforgettable duet of a popular song
The world-renowned Italian tenor, Andrea Bocelli, shared the spotlight with his son, Matteo Bocelli, as they sang the Italian version of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.”
Even though the father and son have been classically trained, it doesn’t mean that they couldn’t do a superb performance in singing modern pop songs.
“Perfect” is undoubtedly one of Sheeran’s greatest hits by far and for his album, “Divide,” he decided to do a collaboration with Andrea. They translated some parts of the lyrics and put a classical twist to it. Thus, the song “Perfect Symphony” was born.
Recently, Andrea and his son appeared on BBC’s Radio 2 Piano Room and they performed the hit song together.
The duet was not the first one for Andrea and Matteo. The father and son had already collaborated and worked together on Andrea’s single, “Fall On Me,” in the past.
Meanwhile, speaking about his collaboration with Sheeran, Andrea revealed he wasn’t quite sure at first since he wasn’t familiar with Sheeran. Although, he shared that his two sons were big fans of the “Perfect” singer, which helped convince him to collaborate.
Talking about the experience with Evening Standard, Andrea said, "The strange thing was that he really, really wanted me to sing on that particular song, with an operatic touch to it - something that he didn't think was actually feasible. But he was so determined that he came all the way to my house.”
In June 2018, Sheeran invited Andrea to one of his concerts at the Wembley Stadium in London, where they performed “Perfect Symphony” live for the first time.
