As a trio, Il Volo, which is both the name of the group and the album, was first discovered in 2009 during the popular RAI 1 TV Show “Ti Lascio una canzone”. The show, presented by Antonella Clerici, is a competition between Italian “golden oldies” performed by young singing talents selected from among the leading students of today’s most prestigious music schools. The kids are assigned songs as solos, duets, or trios, and often sing all together as an ensemble or with Italian and international singing guests, with a 30-piece orchestra backing their performances. Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca took part in the 2009 edition, broadcast from the prestigious Teatro Ariston in Sanremo.

Just a year later, the trio featured as special guest to the famous music Sanremo Festival and performed before Queen Rania of Jordan.

Their popularity at the international level was enhanced by the participation to the project “We are the World for Haiti”, in which they were the only Italian artists requested directly by producers Quincy Jones and Humberto Gatica. They are among the 80 International stars who took part to the recording by the Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood – the same studio where Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie recorded the original version in 1985. Among the others Celine Dion, Akon, Carlos Santana, Barbra Streisand, Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Pink, Black Eyed Peas, ecc.

The trio's world promotional tour starts December 7th in Paris and includes major cities in the U.S. and Europe. Il Volo has recently signed a recording contract with Jimmy Iovine, President of Geffen, label of the Universal Group USA. It’s the very first time that an Italian Artist signs a contract with an American label. Their debut album will be released February 14 in the US, South America, Canada, Australia and Europe, and the trio will join Paul Anka as support singers for a short tour on the East Coast. Do not miss them as guests on the very last episode of the Larry King Live talk show on December 16th.
