Italian teen group Il Volo is reaching more audiences with their repertoire becoming more mainstream each passing record or tour. The group recently released their sophomore album "We Are Love" which includes their version of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" and U2's "Beautiful Day". They also recorded a composition by pop ballad hit maker Diane Warren, along with a duet with world-famous tenor Placido Domingo.
Released by MCA Music, "We Are Love" boasts a title cut that tightly embraces the identity of the Il Volo trio composed of Piero Barone (19), Gianluca Ginoble (17) and Ignazio Boschetto (18). The album was recorded in Los Angeles and Rome, co-produced by Grammy-winning producer Humberto Gatica and Tony Renis.
The track "Il Canto" features the voice of Domingo while the number “Cosi" delivers a guest performance by another globally respected act in Eros Ramazzotti.
Il Volo, which means flight in Italian, is currently touring the world with the great Barbra Streisand as guests for the latter's latest series of live shows.
As proof of their growing popularity they have already appeared in widely watched TV shows American Idol, Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Ellen, The Talk, and Rachel Ray. They were featured on the final episode of the HBO hit “Entourage”.
The group's self-titled CD sold more than a million copies while their high-rated PBS special show “Il Volo – Live from the Detroit Opera House” being put on DVD and CD due to high public interest. According to a Filipino music insider, Il Volo’s new album "We Are Love" has been earning raves among the Filipino fans since it is a record targeting not only the older market but the younger listeners as well.
The troika of angelic voices participated in the "We Are The World" new-age version recorded to help the earthquake-devastated Haiti.
