Andrea Bocelli and his son, Matteo, wowed fans with their performance at the Sanremo Music Festival earlier this month.


Bocelli took to the stage with his 21-year-old son to perform "Fall On Me," a single from Bocelli's 2018 album titled "Si."

The song was also included on the soundtrack of the "Nutcracker and the Four Realms," and their moving performance brought them a standing ovation from the crowd.


The festival was also broadcasted on Rai, an Italian state broadcasting service, where the clip was watched by more than 10 million viewers.

One moment in particular that tugged at the fans' heartstrings was when Bocelli wrapped his arm around Matteo during their performance.

During 2018, he also appeared in the documentary "Silent Night – A Song for the World," and the TV movie "The Wonderful World of Disney."


After the show, Matteo took to Twitter, where he shared photos from the evening and thanked Sanremo Rai for giving them the opportunity to perform.

He added the hashtags "Sanremo 2019," and tagged both Sanremo Rai and Rai Uno. Fans rushed to the comment section with words of praise.


Gianfranco said the duo sang "Fall On Me" perfectly, while another user added: "You are both sooooo sweet."

Fabiola Artavia thanked the duo for an "incredible performance," while another netizen added:

"Last night you were wonderful when your dad handed you the vest, and then you intoned @FallOnMe the tears came down inevitably!"


Fans can catch up with Bocelli in "Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade," a made-for-TV movie in which he was cast as himself.

During 2018, he also appeared in the documentary "Silent Night – A Song for the World," and the TV movie "The Wonderful World of Disney."

Bocelli was also a musical guest on "Strictly Come Dancing," and made appearances on "The One Show," "Che Tempo Che Fa," and "Live! with Kelly."

Apart from that, also joined Ed Sheeran in the video short "Perfect Symphony," and joined Ariana Grande in the short, "E Piu Ti Penso."
