There are some musicians that are so accomplished and respected that any up-and-coming artist would do anything to work with them. Only the most talented actually get the opportunity to collaborate with a legend, and the outcome is usually a remarkable piece of music.
Andrea Bocelli is one of the stars any fellow musician would do just about anything to work with. The Italian opera singer is highly respected across all areas of the music industry and recently released a new collaboration with singer, Ellie Goulding that lives up to his reputation.
Andrea has worked with dozens of musicians from across the globe over the years. He’s a singer, songwriter, and record producer whose career has spanned more than three decades. Andrea is so highly regarded that Celine Dion once said that “if God would have a singing voice, he must sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli”.
Ellie Goulding has a little less time under her belt as a musician, as she started her career in 2009. Still, since then she’s found immense success because of her uniquely beautiful voice and style. She’s worked with artists like Sean Paul, Diplo, Matthew Herbert, Zedd, and Calvin Harris. However, it could be argued that her duet with Andrea is her most impressive to date.
Andrea and Ellie’s duet, Return to Love, is one that will send shivers down the spine. It blends a little bit of Italian and a little bit of English throughout the song, interchanging languages from beginning to end. Andrea’s bold, strong voice combined with Ellie’s soprano creates a gorgeous sound that blends together perfectly.
People from all over the world are in awe of this duet and have called Ellie’s voice “angelic” while others express their desire to learn Italian “just to understand Andrea” and his beautiful voice. It’s safe to say this single is a crowd-pleaser.
