Almost half a million people around the world tuned in to watch Italian music maestro’s solo Easter Sunday performance at the magnificent Duomo cathedral in Milan. If you missed it, join over a million people who have since tuned in to listen – watch below.
Bocelli said he was honoured by the invite to perform alone for Italy and the world during Lockdown. “I believe in the strength of praying together,” he said. “I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now.”
