It is not often that The Nite Ranter is at a loss for words. (Really, just ask my wife.) But, this is one of those rare times.  So, sit back and listen to this very unique group of vocalists and prepare to be overwhelmed by their talent(s).

And now….”IL VOLO.”

In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone (17), Ignazio Boschetto (16), and Gianluca Ginoble (16), appeared on the popular Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard “O Sole Mio.” The boys, who won the competition easily, decided their group needed a name. “Il Volo,” meaning “flight,” was chosen to signify the feeling that these three young tenors were about to spread their wings and fly.

Their first album is already certified gold and on its way to platinum status in their home country and will see a worldwide release this year. In addition, the group became the first Italian artists to sign with Geffen Records in the United States, where the album will also be released this year.

They may be young, but IL VOLO’s mission is clear: “We want to share our love for this music with people all over the world, including kids our own age.” That they say, “would be our dream come true.”

That just about says it all… so I’ll, once again, shut up and let you form your own opinion.
