Andrea and Matteo Bocelli

Matteo and Andrea Bocelli

Andrea Angel Bocelli was born in Tuscany, Italy in September 1958. Andrea is an Italian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He was diagnosed with

congenital glaucoma at 5 months old. As a child, he learned to play the piano, flute and saxophone. Bocelli became blind at the age of 12 following a soccer injury.

His big break came when a demo tape landed in the hands of Luciano Pavarotti and the rest is history. Rarely does it happen that when the father has a famous voice, his son is following in his footsteps. Now Matteo and his father have begun to sing together, which brings tears of joy and appreciation to audiences.
