Bio

Italian tenor vocal trio Il Volo ("The Flight") are one of the biggest names in classical crossover pop worldwide, with a sound that combines traditional opera, pop, and classical symphonic music. Formed in 2009 while the members were all contestants on the reality television vocal competition Ti Lascio una Canzone (Leaving You with a Song), Il Volo feature the talents of Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble. The singers of Il Volo, who were in their mid-teens at the time, were initially individual contestants on Ti Lascio una Canzone. However, the producers decided they should sing "O Sole Mio" together on an episode of the show in May of that year, and Il Volo were born. The trio won the competition and quickly became popular in Europe, representing Italy on Quincy Jones' charity single "We Are the World: 25 for Haiti" and performing at the 60th annual Sanremo Music Festival in February 2010. The trio recorded its first album in London, Los Angeles, and Rome with producer Humberto Gatica, opting for a mix of standards, classic Italian songs, and material penned by contemporary songwriters such as Diane Warren. Il Volo's self-titled debut was released in Europe in November 2010 and earned platinum status; it arrived in the U.S. in May 2011, when the group also performed on American Idol. The CD/DVD Il Volo Takes Flight: Live from the Detroit Opera House arrived in February 2012, followed closely by their second studio album, We Are Love, in November. In 2013, Il Volo returned with the holiday-themed Buon Natale: The Christmas Album. An accompanying live DVD, Buon Natale: Live from the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theatre, appeared before the holiday. Amidst continued annual touring, the trio next released the EP Sanremo Grande Amore in early 2015, comprising the new song "Grande Amore" and six covers of Italian pop tunes. That September, a concert DVD, Live from Pompeii, arrived, followed by the widely anticipated full-length album, Grande Amore. Including a blend of original songs as well as classics, the album reached the charts in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, and the United States. ~ Heather Phares
