Video Shows Andrea Bocelli Singing Elvis’ Beautiful Song, and the Crowd Cheers from His First Words

Acclaimed opera singer Andrea Bocelli took the crowd's breath away with his performance of "Can't Help Falling in Love" in Las Vegas back in 2006. 

Bocelli was accompanied by master pianist David Foster on the piano. At the time, Foster wooed the audience by saying

 “We are in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world. There’s got to be a song that you could pull out of your hat that is very appropriate and right for this occasion being in Las Vegas."

Musical talent certainly runs in the family, and that was proven when Bocelli performed "Fall On Me" with is 21-year-old son, Matteo. 

During his prestigious career, Bocelli performed for Pope John Paul II, just one day after his father Alessandro Bocelli passed away. 

STRONG FAMILY TIES

Andrea’s mother Edi encouraged him to honor his commitment. However, he returned home immediately after his performance, to grieve with his family.

Musical talent certainly runs in the family, and that was proven when Bocelli performed "Fall On Me" with is 21-year-old son, Matteo. 

Back in February, the father-and-son duo wowed fans at the Sanremo Music Festival in Italy. 

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