Andrea Bocelli is a multiple Classical Brit-winning and Grammy and Emmy nominated, Italian pop tenor and crossover artist.[1][2] Since winning the Newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival, in 1994,[3] he has sold over 80 million albums worldwide,[4] making him the biggest-selling singer in the history of Classical music.[5][6][7][8]

In 1998, he was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People.[9] In 1999, his nomination for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards marked the first time a classical artist had been nominated in the category, since Leontyne Price, in 1961.[10] The Prayer, his duet with Celine Dion for the animated film, The Quest for Camelot, won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song and was nominated for an Academy Award in the same category.[10] With the release of his classical album, Sacred Arias, Bocelli captured a listing in the Guinness Book of World Records, as he simultaneously held the No. 1, 2 and 3 positions on the U.S. Classical albums charts.[10] The next three-and-a-half years followed with Bocelli holding permanent residency at the No. 1 spot.[10] Six of his albums have since reached the Top 10 on the Billboard 200,[11] and a record-setting 8, have topped the classical albums charts in the United States.[12][13]

With 5 million units sold worldwide,[14] Sacred Arias became the biggest-selling classical album by a solo artist of all time,[2][10] and with over 20 million copies sold worldwide,[14][15] his 1997 pop album, Romanza, became the best-selling album by an Italian artist of any genre in history,[14] as well as the best-selling album by a foreign artist in Canada,[16][17][18] and a number of other countries in Europe and Latin America.[10] The album's first single, "Time to Say Goodbye", topped charts all across Europe, including Germany, where it stayed at the top of the charts for fourteen consecutive weeks, breaking the all-time sales record, with over 3 million copies sold in the country.[2][10] The single went on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling singles of all time.[15][19][20] He is widely regarded as the most popular Italian and classical singer in the world,[21]

In 2006, Bocelli was made a Grand Officer of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, and on March 2, 2010, he was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.[22][23]
