Punk rockers and rappers probably would scoff and sneer at these Italian bros. Why __because they can really sing and bang out a song!
Perhaps you’ve seen this vid before. However, I posted it for 3 reasons: for those who haven’t viewed it; as a theme change and, because today, I came up empty for a more serious blog entry. L
I’m not sure, but I believe this 4 min. music video is the Italian version of “America’s Next Idol”. The young singing trio are only 14 and 15yrs old and are extraordinary, to say the least.
They sing a very familiar Italian classic titled, “O Sole Mio”. This song has melody, harmony and it’s pleasing to the ears. At the 1minute, 15sec. mark, each boy demonstrates the power of his singing voice, especially the taller 14yr old at the 2min 24 sec mark.
No offence to those who love pop and rap (I’m into some pop and rap), but a lot of the music today does not have the elements of melody and harmony. It’s been said that if you can’t whistle or hum a song, then it ain’t music.
The song opens with one 14yr old singing, followed by the 15yr old, with the glasses, and the third, the taller one, is also 14yrs old. If you look away from the screen, you’d think the singing voices were coming from seasoned adult tenor singers .
Jack up the volume a bit and feel the power of their voices. I think they are just amazing. Perhaps you will too!
