“On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan. I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now. Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride. The generous, courageous, proactive Milan and the whole of Italy will be again, and very soon, a winning model, engine of a renaissance that we all hope for. It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth” Andrea Bocelli

    Andrea, God bless you and your family for this affectionate expression with all of us. Isolated inside our homes, we had our hearts fluttering for about thirty minutes. I am grateful! We will win, we will overcome all this. As long as there is love and music in the world, we will be fine. I saw you live and it was amazing. Namastê🌟🌻🌍❤🦋🐦🎵🦁🙏🥰🌟BRASIL, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul❤.

    “I was blind, but now I see”. when Andrea Bocelli sang that it reminded me of Saint Exupery’s “the little prince”:”It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye” . Andrea Bocelli can clearly see with his heart. We can hear that

      Blind but now I see refers to spiritual blindness not natural blindness.
      2 Corinthians 4:4
      In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

      @rhonda Redfern Whatever, it’s amazing when a blind man sings this

    Eu amo esse homem desde que me conheço por gente!! Que privilégio vivermos na mesma época que essa lenda.

  12. Carolyn Dominy says:

    On this sad, sad Easter Sunday when our world is closed, Bocelli’s magnificent voice truly reminds us all of the things that are truly dearest of all – the love of God, love of family, love of fellowman.
    And for him to sing “Amazing Grace” meant so much to me personally who remembers standing with my family in a little wooden white church in my middle Georgia hometown as a child in the 1930s with my father and mother touched me more deeply than imaginable.

    That hymn cuts across all socio-economic barriers and is so beloved by many regardless of religious beliefs.
    Thank you to those who produced this tribute today so the world again could pause and realize there is something greater than ourselves that inspires us to be better people.
    And thank you, Italy, for the wonderful culture you have given to this world for centuries and centuries.

  13. John A. Graham says:

    So passionate, so appropriate, so powerful. We need power together with softness, we need to cry and grieve the lost, while finding the energy to heal those that are still sick and suffering. The world grieves for Italy, as we face our own local pandemics. Thank you AB!

  14. LeeSee L says:

    Youtube needs a LOVE button for gifts like this. I do not “like”. I LOVE!

  15. João Delicado says:

    And along these 24 min, it just felt like normal days were back.
    How magical is the image of Maestro Bocelli, singing alone, while his god-like voice echoes in so many silent and fearful streets all over the world…
    Grazie Mr Bocelli. You’re a bless to this world.

  16. maria bitakou says:

Italy is so beautiful so breath taking. Thank you Mr. Bocelli for such amazing concert. 💜 It’s funny how we are in different parts of the world but connected through this concert by a great voice.
