If your are not yet aware of this legend, prepare to be blown away. Andrea Bocelli is an Italian opera singer who lost his sight by age 12 from congenital glaucoma. He became well-known in the early ‘90s and can now be considered ‘The World’s Most Beloved Tenor.’

Virginia joined her dad on stage in Florida to make her U.S. debut. Andrea played guitar while she started singing the first verse with ease. This little performer made flawless singing look easy! Even when her dad harmonized with her, she didn’t miss a beat or a note!
What better song to sing than ‘Hallelujah’ for a debut in a new country?
‘Hallelujah’ was originally written by Leonard Cohen in 1984. Surprisingly enough, the song wasn’t popular at first but gained recognition as more artists recorded covers.
The song’s popularity spiked in the early 2000s when it was featured in the movie ‘Shrek.’ ‘Hallelujah’ finally made the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2016 after Leonard Cohen passed away.
The world needed at least one more cover of the haunting song, and Virginia Bocelli delivered a beautiful performance alongside her legendary dad. Your ears are in for a treat!
