His incredible voice is known all over the world and now it seems that talent runs in the family.
A renowned tenor, Andrea Bocelli was joined on stage Friday by his son Matteo, 24, and 10-year-old daughter Virginia in London.
The trio delighted fans in the O2 arena with a section of classic tunes as they sang from their celebratory album titled A Family Christmas.

For the young Virginia, this is her first appearance on an album, having previously performed on stage with her father in 2020.
While Matteo has already followed in his father’s footsteps and is enjoying the start of his own successful solo recording career, having signed to Capitol Records in 2019.

The songs on the record are Away in a Manger, Feliz Navidad and The First Noël.
