Andrea Bocelli Biography - Overcoming Adversity
Born in 1958, this iconic artist grew up on
his family's farm, with music his only respite from the suffering brought on by his poor eyesight. By 12 his sight was completely
lost following an incident at a football game, leading the performer to indulge his musical inclinations even further. His
career began after sending in a demo tape to Italian rock star Zucchero, who was trying to persuade Pavarotti to sing on his
album. Two years after completing the recording, Bocelli found himself duetting with Pavarotti at his Charity Gala concer.
After winning the Sanremo Festival competition twice, Andrea released his platinum-selling studio debut, Il mare calmo
della sera. His popularity in the US increased exponentially throughout the latter half of the '90s, with his Celine Dion
duet 'The Prayer' sweeping the board the Academy Awards, Grammys and Golden Globes. In 2010 the tenor was awarded with a star
on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, while he went on to perform in front of the Royal family to celebrate the 100th
Royal Variety Performance.
The singer's more recent work - including 2013's Passione - have seen him continue
to entwine classical traditional with fresh artists including duets with Nelly Furtado and Jennifer Lopez. See the multi-award
