Il Volo

I am not much of a follower of opera singing. I've listened to some songs by the world famous Three Tenors (represented by the Spanish singers Plácido Domingo and José Carreras and the Italian singer Luciano Pavarotti) and Il Divo, a not too recent discovery (in 2004) by Simon Cowell of the American Idol fame. But the fresh and bold singing style of this new group who called themselves the Il Volo, comprising three Italian boys aged between 16 - 18 who launched their career in 2009 is bound to trigger global attention especially among the teen set who can relate to them. I like their rich voices and varied styles. Listen to their video clips below and see if you disagree.

Their voices are powerful and well coordinated. I wonder who discover them? Simon Cowell again?
