“America loved me from the beginning.
I remember, with a bit of emotion, what my father used to say to me:
You must go to America. And he was right. – says Bocelli – The display of affection from people in the streets, the roaring applause in the theatres and the venues where I had the pleasure to perform, the handshake of so many common people, the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, these things give me the strength to move forward.
Now, the news of the American Grammy nomination, which seals a relationship of deep affection between me and this great nation, whom I thank from the bottom of my heart.”
