Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli will be singing live via live stream on Easter Sunday. He is doing this in the hope of lifting the spirits of the people of his beloved country, Italy.
One of the first countries to suffer severely from the coronavirus was Italy. Many people’s lives have been lost and the country brought to its knees.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the famous opera singer will be performing in the Milan cathedral, which is currently closed. He was given permission to do this by the Archpriest, Monsignor Gianantonio Borgonovo, and Mayor, Giuseppe Sala.
Bocelli hopes that his performance will send 'love, healing and hope' to the people of Italy.
Along with Duomo di Milano's organist, Emanuele Vianelli, Bocelli will perform classics such as Ave Maria and Sancta Maria.
The performance will be streamed live to his YouTube channel where the entire world can watch the historic act.
Bocelli expressed his pride in being asked to perform and explained what a great honour it was to be able to do this for his country.
Believing in the strength of prayer and God, Bocelli believes that his performance on Easter Sunday will be ‘a universal symbol of rebirth’.
