Biography

Il Volo ("The Flight") is an Italian classical pop trio composed of Piero Barone (born June 1993), Ignazio Boschetto (October 1994) and Gianluca Ginoble (February 1995). They met in February 2009 when Gianluca was barely 14 years old, Ignazio was 14 and Piero was 15. They were each competing as solo artists on the Italian TV talent competition show "Ti Lascio Una Canzone" when the producers convinced them to compete as a trio. They then went on to win the competition. Following this they became the first Italian artists to sign a recording contract with an American label, Universal Music Group.

In November 2010, Il Volo released their self-titled debut in Italy, where it was certified platinum. After its worldwide release in April 2011, this collection of pop standards and soulful ballads debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and eventually climbed to the number 6 slot. Also reaching the top ten on Billboard's Classical Crossover chart, Il Volo attracted the attention of Quincy Jones (who asked the trio to join superstars like Celine Dion and Josh Groban on the charity single We Are The World: 25 for Haiti) and Barbra Streisand (who granted Il Volo the extraordinary honor of requesting their accompaniment on her 2012 tour).

In November 2012, after wrapping up their tour with Streisand, the group released their second studio album "We Are Love." Backed by orchestration from the Czech Symphony, Il Volo put their talents to work on selections such as as "Questo Amore" (an Italian-language take on Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing"), U2's powerful "Beautiful Day", and Luna Nascosta (the theme from the 2012 movie "Hidden Moon"). "We Are Love" also features guest appearances by Placido Domingo (on "Il Canto", a song dedicated to Luciano Pavarotti) and Italian singer-songwriter Eros Ramazzotti (on the ballad "Cosi").

In May 2013, Il Volo released "We Are Love (Special Edition)", that includes the group's renditions of One Direction's "Little Things", Sarah McLachlan's "Angel", Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight", and West Side Story's "Maria".

The group's debut PBS Special "Il Volo Takes Flight" has racked up more than 2,100 broadcasts since its original airing in March 2012 and their second special "Il Volo: We Are Love" won them further praise.

On October 26, 2013, they released the international version of "Buon Natale: The Christmas Album", with popular American Christmas songs, as well as two songs in Latin, one in Spanish and one in German, and duets with Pia Toscano and Belinda. The album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Holiday Albums and peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Classical Albums chart. The single "O Holy Night" peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. Their 3rd PBS special, "Il Volo Buon Natale", aired in December 2013.

"Sanremo Grande Amore" is an extended play released in February 2015 following their appearance at the 65th Sanremo Music Festival, in which their song "Grande Amore" received first prize in the "Big Artists" category. "Grande Amore", released as the lead single on February 12, 2015, is the only original composition of the EP. The remaining six tracks are covers of popular Italian songs. "Sanremo Grande Amore" is also Il Volo's first release for their new label, Sony Music Italy.
