How Did Andrea Bocelli Die?
Despite being born visually impaired, with congenital glaucoma, and losing his sight at the age of 12, Bocelli has gone on to become one of the world’s most famous tenors.
Bocelli started singing at piano bars in the 1980s, before becoming a full-time professional singer. He has recorded many albums, ranging from opera to classical music and pop.
He suffered a brain hemorrhage
At age 12, Bocelli lost his sight completely after he was hit by the ball in a football game. Doctors tried to save him by using leeches, but their efforts failed and he died.
The Italian tenor was born with congenital glaucoma. It is treatable now, but when he was young it was not. He was also diagnosed with a brain hemorrhage.
Although he is blind, Bocelli is a highly successful singer. He has sold over 90 million albums worldwide. He has released 15 solo studio albums of both pop and classical music, three greatest hits albums, and nine complete operas.
He has received many awards for his performances and recordings, including two Echo Klassik Awards, the first for best selling classical album and the second for best selling Italian artist. He has also been awarded the Grande Ufficiale Italian Order of Merit (Grand Officer of the Italian Republic).
A renowned pianist, Bocelli is known for his unique voice and a range that can be heard in every note. His voice is admired and respected by other musicians.
Bocelli is a popular performer on television. He has appeared on several high-profile shows, such as the 83rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
He is also a family man. He has two sons and a daughter. He has a second wife, Veronica Berti, who is his manager. The couple lives in a villa on the Mediterranean Sea near Forte dei Marmi, Italy.
He was diagnosed with COVID-19
The internationally beloved Italian tenor announced Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 in March, but that he had a “swift and full recovery.” He said he didn’t reveal his diagnosis earlier because of privacy concerns. He also said he was giving plasma to help researchers find a cure for the novel virus.
Bocelli, who lives in Tuscany with his wife and manager, Veronica Berti, and their two children, was one of many celebrities to test positive for COVID-19, a rare coronavirus that has hit Italy hard. The country has nearly 230,000 cases and 33,000 deaths, but it’s slowly starting to see a reduction in those numbers.
He broke the Internet with his “Music for Hope” performance last month that aired from an empty Milan cathedral and was seen by millions of people around the world on YouTube. It was a powerful show that brought the nation together during a difficult time and became the largest classical music event ever live-streamed on YouTube.
A few days after that touching event, he joined Lady Gaga for “One World: Together at Home” — an online music festival that raised nearly $128 million for COVID-19 relief. He later donated blood to support research on the disease.
He died on March 21, 2023
Born on September 22, 1958, Bocelli is an Italian operatic tenor who is known for his unique blend of opera and pop music. He is estimated to have a range of C#2–D5, and has sung crossover hits, as well as complete operas.
He first started singing at a young age, and was also a skilled musician on flute, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone. But the enduring appeal of singing led him to pursue a career in music.
After learning piano, Bocelli began performing in bars and nightclubs to finance his education. He eventually earned a law degree, and later practiced law for a year before deciding to turn to a musical career.
As a child, Bocelli was born with congenital glaucoma that impaired his vision. His mother was urged by doctors to abort him because of his condition, but she decided to go against her doctor’s advice and give him birth instead.
Despite his lack of vision, Andrea Bocelli continued to study and pursue a career in music. He studied voice with Italian spinto tenor Franco Corelli. He has won many awards and is considered a worldwide star. His tenor voice has been praised by a number of world-class musicians, including Celine Dione.
