Andrea Bocelli 3

I want to have time for myself, my family and my friends. It’s important because in order to sing well, you must have inspiration, and inspiration comes from life, from living.
Andrea Bocelli

What is beautiful enchants me. I mean not just physical beauty but a wider concept of beauty. There is beauty in poetry and in great musical or singing performances. There is beauty everywhere if you can just see it.
Andrea Bocelli

My style in Italian is very old-style.
Andrea Bocelli

The fact that I am blind is not what defines my life. It should be of no more interest than my blood type. People wonder if there is a relationship between my lack of sight and the way I sing. But there’s no connection.
Andrea Bocelli

My idol has been Franco Corelli. But every singer can teach you something.
Andrea Bocelli

I change the language with which I use my voice. In opera, I know I have an orchestra behind me; I have to communicate to people very far from me.
Andrea Bocelli

I do not think anyone can ever do anything without the help and will of God.
Andrea Bocelli

I am a very lazy man, so, for me, the dream is to be at home on the chair with my family.
Andrea Bocelli

I prefer to work for my country in a free and independent way. I was born free, and I want to die free. I am always suspicious of ideology. Instead, I respect men with ideas.
Andrea Bocelli

It is the uninvolved parent who has to resort to strictness.
Andrea Bocelli

The voice changes very slowly. I keep mine well under control and try with all my might to keep it exactly as it was at the very beginning.
Andrea Bocelli

You have to have great passion, because to sing operatic music requires lots of work. I study for at least two hours every day. The voice is like an instrument and requires constant exercise.
Andrea Bocelli

When I hear that young people have come to the theater for the first time to listen to opera, I’m very happy. Because it’s the same thing that happened to me as a child. When I first heard the tenor voice, I immediately fell in love with this kind of music.
Andrea Bocelli

I first started playing in piano bars for three reasons – to make money, to be in the company of my friends – and also to hook up with young girls. I always knew, even before I played in piano bars, about the effect of my voice.
Andrea Bocelli

In singing, you cannot ‘cheat’ if you want to give emotions to those who are listening. You must have something to tell.
Andrea Bocelli

It’s always beautiful to sing with other great voices. I like voices in general. It’s a big privilege to have great singers next to me.

The nature of music is mysterious and so much so that it generates strong emotions within us. It moves along passages that reach the most intimate areas of our psyche without being tried by prejudices or influences of any kind.
Andrea Bocelli

Music is an art that goes well beyond science. Proof can be found in the huge amount of studies that have been carried out throughout the world based on music-therapy and the important results achieved.
Andrea Bocelli

My real passion is for opera. It was born and developed by listening to records, and my dream as a child was to record entire operas when I grew up, and this dream came true.
Andrea Bocelli

The feeling of an evolution is a constant for every artist who is pursuing the search of refinement and enlargement of his/her own means of expression.
Andrea Bocelli

Losing my sight had nothing to do with my focus on music. My passion for music was already there, so it would be a mistake to give too much significance to my blindness.
Andrea Bocelli

When you sing and people want that you sing, then you can hope to be great.
Andrea Bocelli

Often, I went in love with some friends in school. And, no, I suffered. Only later, things went better.
Andrea Bocelli

Now I’m more sure and I feel myself more comfortable singing.
Andrea Bocelli

It’s true that I suffered a lot, especially when I was younger.
Andrea Bocelli

I think I don’t want to use drugs or medicine, so nothing. The only way is to go on stage and to hope.
Andrea Bocelli
