Profile Bio Text
Andrea Bocelli, Grande Ufficiale OMRI (born 22 September 1958) is an Italian pop tenor and crossover artist. Since his debut album Il mare calmo della sera, released in 1994, he has recorded over 22 pop and classical albums, including seven operas. Bocelli was born in Lajatico, Tuscany, Italy, about 40 km south of Pisa, in 1958, to parents Alessandro and Edi Bocelli, and grew up on the family farm. Bocelli`s parents sold farm machinery and made wine in the tiny village of La Sterza, a frazione of Lajatico. To this day, Bocelli`s 70 year old mother Edi and brother Alberto still live in the family home. Bocelli`s father died in 2000. It was evident at birth that he had problems with his sight, and after visits to many doctors Bocelli was diagnosed with glaucoma. In 1970, at the age of 12, he completely lost his sight after an accident during a football game.
In 1998, Bocelli was named one of People Magazine`s 50 Most Beautiful People. He met his first wife Enrica, with whom he had two children, while singing at piano bars early in his career. They were married on 27 June 1992. Their first child, Amos, was born in February 1995. Their second son, Matteo was born in October 1997. The couple divorced in 2002. Soon after, he met fiancée Veronica Berti, but he does not plan to get married again due to his Roman Catholic beliefs. The couple live in Forte dei Marmi, and Bocelli`s ex-wife and two sons live in the couple`s previous residence in the same comune, in Versilia.
