Andrea Bocelli has the voice of an angel.
We’ve all heard it.
His masterful vibrato and expansive range are awe-inspiring.
Here, we have Andrea not only as a gifted vocalist but also as a father.
That’s right! Hailing live from the Teatro Regio di Parma in Italy, Andrea performs a duet with his daughter Virginia.
What’s on the docket? Well, tonight we have a cover of Leonard Cohen’s masterpiece “Hallelujah.”YouTube/Andrea Bocelli Source: YouTube/Andrea Bocelli
Two angelic voices join in harmony.
Andrea and Virginia prepare to make their way onto a candlelit stage.
Virginia enters with a guitar in hand.
Unfortunately, the theater appears to be empty amid the ongoing pandemic.
Regardless, she’s ready to bring this opera house down!YouTube/Andrea Bocelli Source: YouTube/Andrea Bocelli

Let’s see what Virginia’s got.
Andrea begins to strum the opening chords of Leonard Cohen’s masterpiece.
Then, Virginia enters – in English!
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you dont really care for music, do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor falls, the major lifts
The baffled king composing Hallelujah”
Needless to say, masterful talent runs in the family.
Virginia’s no slouch.
How could she be? Her dad’s Andrea freaking Bocelli!YouTube/Andrea Bocelli Source: YouTube/Andrea Bocelli
Andrea’s finely-tuned Italiano tenor comes in for the next verse,
“La fede mia mi abbandonò
Si perse ma si ritrovò
Perché smarrito sempre la cercai
Bellezza, incanto e nostalgia
Ferirono la mente mia
Che in lacrime gridava un Hallelujah”
Cohen’s original lyrics are in English, but the Italian sounds oh so fine.
And coming from these two, could it possibly sound any better?YouTube/Andrea Bocelli Source: YouTube/Andrea Bocelli

Vocal talent clearly runs in the family!
