To my fellow leaders in the Italian-American community –
Having had the pleasure of recently working with the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, and Maestro Bocelli himself, I was shocked to learn that despite selling over 85 million albums worldwide – Andrea has never been the recipient of a Grammy award.
His #1 Billboard album, Si, is nominated for Traditional Pop Vocal Album – and I am keeping my fingers crossed that The Recording Academy will recognize him at the 2020 Awards on January 26.
I personally feel that Andrea has done so much to reignite America’s love affair with Italian music and Italian language, that it would be a huge accomplishment for him and for us if he were to win this award.
Please share this post among your networks and on social media in the hopes that it will reach those who vote on the awards.
Many thanks and Buon Natale!
