OK ... like a plateful of excellent spaghetti when you're famished, this is nothing short of incredible.
If you've been paying attention you already know that at our house, we're huge fans of the classical crossover or pop-opera (say it with me: "POPERA!") genre.
Think Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Il Divo, The Canadian Tenors ... to name the most notable.
And then there are these three Italian kids.
Turns out I've blogged about them before!
Collectively -- now -- they are known as Il Volo. That means The Flight in Italian. And I do believe that, musically at least, they are destined to soar.
They were put together by some savvy impresario or other in 2009, when all three performed in an Italian music competition.
A few weeks ago they debuted their eponymous first album. Here is my two-word review: Molto bella!
Pictured left to right are Gianluca Ginoble, age sixteen; Piero Barone, who will turn eighteen this coming Friday; and Ignazio Boschetto, age sixteen.
I know it's a fourteen-plus-minute YouTube. I don't expect you to sit and stare at their picture for that long.
But do yourself a favor and, when you get up to do something else, let this three-song video play.
What's that you say? More, please? OK.
You may thank me in spaghetti.
