A friend recently sent me a You Tube performance by a group of young men called Il Divo," which means "divine male performer" in Italian. And divine they are ... both in looks and in talent.
I had never heard of Il Divo until I saw this moving performance of them singing "Amazing Grace." If you have never had the pleasure of hearing them, I promise you will be moved, especially when the bagpipes begin playing!
Il Divo were initially brought together by pop impresario Simon Cowell in 2004, following an extensive worldwide audition process. The virtuoso blending of operatic technique with romantic and popular song took the world by storm, with sales of over 22 million.
