Not too many artists have left a longtime impression as much as the time I took my parents, for their wedding anniversary, to see the incomparable Andrea Bocelli.
I recall the sight-impaired Mr. Bocelli needing assistance to the front of the stage, but once he arrived, his adrenaline took over. It was as if he could see again. He was impeccably dressed in an all-white suit and oozed of sophistication.
Each song was soothing and melodic, whether he sang it in English or his native tongue of Italian, and musical candy to my ears. The orchestra behind Andrea served as stellar support and provided even more class to the overall experience.
The night was magical indeed. There’s no arguing that this concert was truly special with a gifted crooner as Mr. Bocelli, but what stays in my heart is my dad leaning over to me and telling me, “This is the best anniversary present we’ve ever received.”
