Some songs are so incredible that they just beg to be covered over and over again. But twice in less than a year, by the same guy?
Well, when that guy happens to be Andrea Bocelli, he can do pretty much whatever he wants. The song we’re talking about is “Perfect,” which was released to wide acclaim on Ed Sheeran’s 2017 album, “Divide.” It was so perfect that he teamed up with the world-renowned Italian tenor for an orchestral version of the song, which was released around the holidays and called “Perfect Symphony.”
After collaborating with one of the biggest singers in the world, Andrea wanted to bring it home by performing the song with his progeny, son and fellow singer Matteo. He’s equally talented and — not that this has anything to do with anything — rather easy on the eyes. (Fans of either of these two probably already know “Fall On Me” is also a father-son duet on Andrea’s latest album, “Sí.”)
This latest duet came during a recent appearance on the BBC’s “Ken Bruce Show.” 21-year-old Matteo takes the first part of the song, crooning the love ballad in English as his father proudly listens on — although he seems, especially when he gently places a hand on his son’s shoulder, almost impatient to take over!
And he finally does, about halfway through, singing in the voice we’ve all come to know and love, as passionately in his native Italian as Matteo’s is in English…
They almost come together toward the end, both alternating their lines in Italian, then their voices finally merge as one in the final lines, with a sonorous show of power that will leave fans screaming for more.
This father-son team is one classy act and they’ve definitely done Ed Sheeran proud. Listen to this beautiful song sung as only the Bocellis can, and share to spread their talent!
