Andrea Bocelli was born in the village of Lajatico in Tuscany, Italy, in 1958. As a young boy living on a farm, he listened to opera and appreciated Italian tenors such as Del Monaco, Gigli, and Franco Corelli. The talented child began piano lessons at age six and went on to study the trumpet, trombone, harp, guitar, drums, saxophone, and flute. Born with congenital glaucoma, Andrea had weak eyesight. At age 12, he lost his vision after a soccer accident.
In 1992, an Italian rock star named Zucchero played a tape for legendary operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti of Andrea singing "Miserere." Highly impressed, Pavarotti gave the young singer encouragement and voice lessons. The next time Zucchero went on tour, Bocelli joined him and sang the duet "Miserere" as well as Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" on stage. He released his debut album, Il Mare Calmo Della Sera, in 1994 and followed up with Bocelli the following year. In 1997, he conquered the British music charts with the song "Time to Say Goodbye," also known as "Con Te Partirò" in Italian and "Por ti Volaré" in Spanish in a duet with Sarah Brightman. Other favorite Bocelli singles include "Vivo Per Lei," or "I Live For Her," and "The Prayer," Bocelli's duet with Celine Dion.
Bocelli made his international debut in 1997 with the album Romanza, which went multi-platinum, and the following year he completed an opera album called Aria. Bocelli's first major operatic role was in 1998, playing Rodolfo in La Boheme by Puccini. Since then, he has sung opera arias from Il Travatore, Werther, Tosca, Carmen, and other classics.
In November of 2009, Bocelli released his first Christmas album, My Christmas. The record features guests Reba McEntire, Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole, Jim Henson's Muppets, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. In 2010 he released his most recent album, Carmen: Duets & Arias.
