There are not many vocalists in this entire world that top Andrea Bocelli – it doesn’t matter what age you are or walk of life you come from, that man will touch you right in your soul. He could actually sing about a toilet roll and it would sound like the most romantic, beautiful, spiritual music your sweet ears will ever hear.
THEN…there’s Ed Sheeran, a pure genius in his own right and a man that holds the respect of the entire music industry and the millions (or billions) of fans he has around the world. Now, imagine he goes and recruits Andrea Bocelli for an orchestral version of “Perfect”…INSANE YEAH!?!? Well, it happened. And it’s everything you would hope…and more, so. much. more!
Ed’s bro Matthew, who is a classical composer, arranged the song which they recorded in Andrea’s home in Tuscany, Italy.
As they alternate lead vocals, one of the most incredible parts of watching this is the pure delight they have listening to each other. They are in awe of each other. As are we…listen for yourself and let it make your day, like it did ours.
