Il Divo A Musical Affair
The idea of Il Divo came to Simon Cowell when he heard Andrea Bocelli singing on The Sopranos. The idea was further strengthened when G4 appeared on the famous TV show, The X Factor and ended up being the runner up. Seeing that classical music and lyrical voices were the next big thing of the music industry, Cowell decided to create a quartet. It was also decided that the group will be a multinational one. In a worldwide search that lasted for two years, and culminated in the form of Il Divo, Cowell worked really hard to gather four of the world’s finest musicians who were eager to embark on this new project. It is owing to the groups diversity that Il Divo can sing in five languages; Italian, French, English, Spanish and Latin, and has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Most Multinational Group” from UK. Since its formation, the group has performed at a number of platforms, including American Idol and Swedish Idol.
The group went on a six month tour of Europe, Australia and America and was later offered a chance by Barbara Streisand to perform as special guests on her sixty date concert tour of North America in 2006. Streisand: The Tour ranked at number two among the top grossing tours of 2006. The same year, the group got the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform the official song of FIFA World Cup, “The Time of Our Lives” along with Tony Braxton live. In 2011, Il Divo gave the biggest ever performance, The Paraguay Show, at the sold out Defensoresdel Chaco stadium. Starting from the first year of their formation, Il Divo released their debut eponymous album which was recorded partially in Sweden and partially in UK with Steve Mac. The album contained the Swedish cover of “Unbreak My Heart” (Regresa a Mi), the hit song by Toni Braxton first released in 1996.. The album was released as a CD which hit the number one slot on both Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com. Knocking off Robbie Williams, the album also charted at number one on the UK charts.
In 2004, Il Divo’s second album “Ancora” was released, which was again a hit, peaking at number one on both UK and Australian charts. It sold more than 150,000 copies within the first week of its release. Their third and fourth album, “Voices” and “Siempre,” both came out in 2006. Without stopping for a minute, the group continued recording music and released three more albums in next six years. These were “The Promise,” “Wicked Game,’ and “Greatest Hits”. Being their first compilation of hit Broadway songs from musicals like Carousel, West Side Story and Les Miserables, “A Musical Affair” has created hype all over the country. Get your hands on the Il Divo A Musical Affair tickets to watch this classic crossover group perform their emotional and romantic interpretations of classics like “Bring Him Home” and “Tonight” live on stage.
