Description

An idea came to Simon Cowell one night as he watched an episode of The Sopranos. Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman were providing the background music singing 'Time to Say Goodbye' and it dawned on Cowell that classical music could be made more accessible. So his search began to find members of a group that would bring classical, romantic music to those who felt excluded from the privileged world of opera. He searched the world for two years and finally found four incredibly talented and handsome opera singers: Urs Buhler (Switzerland), Sebastien Izambard (France), Carlos Marin (Spain) and David Miller (USA). Together they became the music sensation that is IL DIVO. IL DIVO are a music phenomenon and this beautifully designed biography will celebrate their success. It will include the histories - both personal and professional - of the four men, their meteoric rise to stardom and their travels across the world. With never-before-published photos and lavish spreads of the handsome quartet, this book is a must-have for the millions of IL DIVO fans around the world. Truly divine.show more
