Il Volo, which means “Flight” in Italian, consists of three talented guys -- Piero Barone (17), Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble (both 16), who hail from Sicily, Italy. The group’s self-titled debut album is a stellar showcase of astonishing vocal talent by these three young singers. They take on a range of new and traditional classically influenced pop songs with the vigour and grandeur of opera.
Cute boys with awesome voices.
(These boys better have bodyguards or they are gonna have a hard time with single & available girls of all ages)
Their first self-titled album was recorded in 2010 in the Abbey Road Studios in London and produced by Tony Renis and Humberto Gatica.
