Andrea Bocelli and daughter Virginia sing beautiful new version of Hallelujah in concert | Music | Entertainment

Little Virginia stunned music fans last Christmas when she sang alongside her famous father at a special Christmas concert broadcast live from Teatro Regio di Parma and playing in the video above. Of course, there was no audience present as the world was in full lockdown. But now the precociously talented girl has been taking to the stage in a series of major concerts with Andrea. You can watch Virginia in action below, singing with her father on the current US leg of his world tour, before he heads to Europe in November.

The extraordinary footage was recorded last week in Chicago. 

In an adorable ruffled black net dress, Virginia stands at the front of the stage while Andrea sits next to her, playing along on an acoustic guitar.

The two deliver a tender version of Leonard Cohen’s iconic ballad Hallelujah, which has fast become their own signature. Later in the show, Virginia also accompanies her father when he performs one of the greatest musical numbers of all time, which is famously about a father and his daughter.

Andrea sings You’ll Never Walk Alone from the Rogers and Hammerstein Broadway show Carousel. The rousing number is performed by a criminal who has lost his life and has one last chance to return to Earth and inspire his wife and young daughter.

Andrea, of course, is a doting father who has been sharing his gift of music with his whole family.

All three children – Virginia and her older half-brothers Amos and Matteo – have been taught piano and singing, alongside their traditional studies.

Andrea previously said: “Virginia, was practically born and raised on stage and behind the scenes… She is a very determined child, and certainly her piano and dance studies have helped her understand when you need to give your all.

“She didn’t take any singing lessons, although she grew up on a diet of bread and music. She has been studying the piano for three years and has been absorbing the art and sounds since she was born.

“Virginia has mastered how to forget the cameras and stay focussed. She maintains the right spontaneity – on a song that I’d recently recorded that she has heard so many times. 

The nine-year-old is currently accompanying her father on tour, along with her mother Veronica Barti, who is the tenor’s second wife.

Amos is an accomplished pianist who has accompanied his father on recordings but has chosen to pursue a career away from performing.

His younger brother Matteo hit headlines when he duetted with their father on the Disney theme song Fall On Me from the movie The Nutcracker and The Four Realms.

Matteo has just released his debut single, Solo, with an album expected early next year.
