They are two of the most celebrated musicians in the world, so it’s no surprise that fans went crazy last year when Andrea Bocelli and Ed Sheeran released a song together.
The beautiful track, titled ‘Amo Soltanto Te’, features on Bocelli’s most recent album Si, and now the blind singing sensation has finally released the official video to accompany it.
Sharing the video with his fans on social media, Bocelli shared a link to the clip which has already been viewed more than 287,000 times on YouTube in the first 24 hours.
The video focuses on a wedding ceremony, with a twist – all of the actors are children, complete with a young red-headed boy miming along to Ed Sheeran’s vocals, whilst a boy wearing dark sunglasses takes on the role of Bocelli.
The video was flooded by fans who praised the pair for their “emotional” and “beautiful” collaboration, with one writing: “What a beautiful song. Bocelli… every time you sing I get the creeps, you’re fantastic and you have a wonderful voice And Sheeran… you sing wonderful too.”
Another fan commented: “This is the most beautiful and the most emotional video I have ever seen. Andrea and Ed thank you for this beautiful beyond words song and beautiful beyond words video.”
And a third said: “Gorgeous song and a stunning video! The children are adorable.”
Andrea, 60, sent fans wild in October last year when he shared the audio for the single, which was written by Sheeran and translates to “I only love you”, with both men singing in Italian throughout.
It marks the second time the two have worked together. Ed previously recruited Andrea to sing on ‘Perfect Symphony’, a re-worked version of Ed’s hit song ‘Perfect’ that reached No.1 in the UK. Earlier this year, Andrea even joined Ed onstage during his Wembley tour shows to sing a live duet with the English pop star.
More recently, Andrea delighted fans by dueting with his son Matteo as they took to the stage at the San Remo music festival in Italy to perform their song ‘Fall On Me’ from the soundtrack to Disney movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
