Andrea Bocelli is widely known as the performer of the song, "Con Te Partiro". The Italian rock star Zucchero Fornaciari first auditioned Andrea Bocelli while scouting for tenors in 1992; upon hearing the tape, tenor Luciano Pavarotti urged Zucchero to use Andrea Bocelli instead of himself.
In 1996 in Germany with soprano Sarah Brightman he sang a duet version of "Con Te Partiro", entitled "Time to Say Goodbye", which broke sales records and stayed in the German top ten for nearly six months. In subsequent years Andrea Bocelli performed at Paris, Bologna, Torre del Lago and the Vatican and released further albums, until entering the American market in 1998 with a concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington and a White House reception. Both that year and in 1999 Andrea Bocelliembarked on tours to North and South America and duets with Celine Dion.
Andrea Bocelli has continued to expand his career with concert appearances throughout the world, including singing during the NBA's 2006 All-Star Weekend in Houston and at the closing ceremonies of the 2006 Winter Olympics. He sang "Because We Believe," from his 2006 album Amore, during the Closing Ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
