The Italian group and Jackie appeared on Today this morning (December 14) in New York City and serenaded the audience with their duet — and it was so stunning!
“This was always our goal,” Gianluca says during a little interview before their performance together. “It was always to carry on the tradition [of classical music], to bring our music and our country all around the world.”

Il Volo have opened up pre-orders on their upcoming album, Notte Magica!
The guys — Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto — announced the new album, which is a tribute to the Three Tenors, earlier in the month and also just debuted the official video of their recent “Nessun Dorma” performance at the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, Italy.
Notte Magica – A Tribute To The Three Tenors will feature a special appearance by Placido Domingo and will debut on September 30th.
Songs on the album include “Granada”, “Mattinata”, “L’Elisir d’amore: Una furtiva lagrima”, “La Danza”, and more.
“We didn’t know each other, but when we met for the first time it was like old friends,” Piero shared ahead of their Las Vegas concert over the weekend.
He added about the experience at their concerts, “I can tell you if you come to our show you can laugh, you can cry, you can have fun because it’s classical music, but we want to bring this kind of music to the young generation.”
“That’s not something we wanted to do,” Gianlucashared recently about including more modern songs on their latest album. “It was something different but it wasn’t the right way to go about things.”
He added, “We want to impress people with the music we love. We want to impress people with powerful songs. We want to surprise our audience. When we get to America, we want to sing classical songs. We want to sing Caruso. We want to sing the great songs.”
