Andrea Bocelli is an amazing Italian singer -- let's just get that out there first. His Christmas album is no exception! But first for today...a little about him.
Andrea Bocelli was born on September 22, 1958. He started piano lessons when he was six, and always had a passion for music. Later, he also played many more instruments including (but not limited to) flute, harp, guitar, and drums. He always had poor eyesight, but became blind at 12, because of a football accident.
He started to become well-known between 1992 and 1998, and started becoming popular in the United States around 1999.
A lot went on in the music world for him during this time, but you'll have to go to Wikipedia yourself to read all about it.
Andrea met his first wife, Enrica, early in his life...eventually, they married and had two children, Amos and Matteo. If I'm reading right, Andrea became estranged from his wife in 2002 and started living with his girl-friend, Veronica. They had a daughter (Virginia) and so far as I can tell, continue to live together. :(
Andrea has produced numerous albums, and I've heard several of his songs. My favorite of his albums would definitely be the Christmas one, My Christmas.
