Urs, Carlos, David and Sebastien have agreed to perform for us once again, and this time they've even agreed to let you decide which of their greatest hits they perform!
Celebrating eight years of unprecedented global success, Il Divo are back with their definitive Greatest Hits collection featuring four brand new tracks as a bonus. They're going to perform two of the new tracks for us – 'Can't Help Falling In Love' and 'My Heart Will Go On' – one on each visit. You have the power to decide which of the following you want them to sing in addition to that!
Just cast your vote by midday Thursday 15th November and tune-in to hear the most popular song performed on Saturday night!
Since their debut album exploded in November 2004 creating musical history and cementing their place as the first ever classical crossover artists, Il Divo have sold over 26 million albums, enjoyed over 50 number ones, chalked up 160 gold and platinum sales in over 33 countries and staged 4 world tours. Wow! Their savvy mix of classical and pop have made them worldwide superstars. Last May the UK Classic Brits gave Il Divo the prestigious ‘Artists of the Decade’ Award to mark them spearheading a whole new genre of music.
Other highlights from their amazing career include appearing at the opening and closing ceremony of the 2006 Fifa World Cup, touring as special guests to Barbra Streisand, a 2009 performance at President Obama’s Purple Inauguration Ball and earlier this year at a special concert for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee at Windsor Castle.
‘Il Divo Greatest Hits’ is being released as a standard 18 track CD and a 2 Disc Gift Edition. Many of the tracks have been chosen by their fans all over the world and include favourites ‘Somewhere’, ‘Unbreak My Heart’, ‘Unchained Melody’ and ‘Adagio’. They’ve also recorded four songs especially for this release: ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (in Italian), ‘I Will Always Love You’ (in Spanish), ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’ (English) and ‘Alone’ (Spanish).
The Gift Edition features an additional 13 tracks including 'Nella Fantasia', 'Hallelujah' and 'Ave Maria'.
‘I am proud of this Greatest Hits,” says Carlos. “I love every song on it. It reminds me of everything we have achieved, to have been together for so many years, still selling so many records, playing so many concerts and making such great music together. It is just fantastic people have supported and enjoyed what we do for so long. It is the love of my life.”
Urs says “As a singer you can never take for granted what you do, every note is a balancing act. But every night I step on stage so proud of what we do. I have learned so much these past 8 years, had so many wonderful experiences and cherished every moment. This Greatest Hits release for us and hopefully our fans marks what has been an incredible journey so far.”
