Andrea Bocelli, the most successful Italian tenor in the world, has been recognized by the Recording Academy for the fifth time and nominated for a Grammy Award in the prestigious “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” category for his latest album Cinema, released on Sugar/Verve. Cinema celebrates the greatest movie songs of all time.
Sugar/Verve wishes to acknowledge Maestro Bocelli, Veronica Berti Bocelli per Almud and Cinema’s three producers David Foster, Tony Renis and Humberto Gatica for their extraordinary creative contribution.
Bocelli is honored to be nominated alongside outstanding artists including Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban and Willie Nelson. Andrea comments, “America has shown me love me from the beginning of my career. I remember with emotion what my father used to say to me: You must go to America. And he was right.” Bocelli continues, “The display of affection from people in the streets, the roaring applause in the theaters and the venues where I had the pleasure to perform, the handshake of so many people, and the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame all give me the strength to move forward. Now, with the news of this Grammy nomination I am reflecting upon the deep relationship and affection between myself and this great nation, whom I thank from the bottom of my heart.”
