This is so beautiful! 😭
Andrea Bocelli gave a beautiful, tear-jerking performance LIVE from the Milan Cathedral in Italy on Easter Sunday. The opera singer entitled the concert “Music for Hope – Live From Duomo di Milano.” He said the event “represents a message of love, healing and hope to Italy and the world.”
As of this writing, the video has almost 37 million views.
He opens the concert with an inspiring and hopeful Christian message:
“On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan.
“I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now.
“Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride.
“The generous, courageous, proactive Milan and the whole of Italy will be again, and very soon, a winning model, engine of a renaissance that we all hope for.
“It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth.”
Bocelli then sings several beautiful classics from an empty cathedral. Accompanied by an organ, he sings Panis Angelicus, Ave Maria, Sacta Maria, Domine Deus, and Amazing Grace.
