Il Volo CD Competition winners announced!
Three opera-singing Italian lads aged 16-18 and called Il Volo are set to go global after appearing on Italy's version of "X-Factor", "Ti Lascio una Canzone", literally 'leaving you a song' in the form of "O Sole Mio". If you're going to 'do' opera for a crossover talent-show audience, you might as well do it properly and pick di Capua and Capurro's classic standard. The trio are already quite a formidable prospect. Close your eyes when listening to them and you'd be forgiven for thinking they're in their 30s or 40s - they really can belt out a tune.
In the UK, however, they haven't yet sung their way into our hearts - but we did say 'yet'. 'Il Volo' is now due for release in 2012 and is available to pre-order now, costing £8.99.
Recently, we gave you the opportunity to win one of three CDs by the young singers, a copy of that very same classy debut-album, no less. The competition has now closed so...
And the winners are...(drum roll)
Tony Lathwell, Vanessa Rozee and Ross Allmett. Congratulations to you three - you'll get to hear the album a full three months before its official release date!!!
