Il Divo Information Continued
The idea behind Il Divo's creation came to Simon Cowell after listening to Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman's rendition of "Con Te Partiro". He realized his appreciation for lyrical voices and classical music and decided to form a multinational quartet that sounded like The Three Tenors and looked like Armani models.
Il Divo's debut album, the self-titled Il Divo, contains renditions of Toni Braxton's hit "Unbreak My Heart" ("Regresa a Mi"), Frank Sinatra's hit "My Way" ("A mi Manera"), an adaptation of Ennio Morricone's soundtrack titled "Gabriel's Oboe" and 1994's San Remo Festival winner "Passera". In the United Kingdom, the Il Divo album topped Robbie Williams as number 1 in the UK charts. This multiplatinum-selling CD became number one in the charts in a total of 13 countries around the world, and achieved top 5 placing in 25 countries.
Il Divo's second album, Ancora, was recorded in both Sweden and London. Released in November 2005 in the UK, it hit number one both in the UK and Australia within one week. Ancora was released in the US in January 2006. It entered the Billboard albums chart at number 1, selling more than 150,000 copies during its first week of sales. Highlights on Ancora include "Isabel", "I Believe In You" ("Je Crois En Toi") - a duet with Celine Dion, a Spanish version of Secret Garden's "You Raise Me Up"("Por Ti Sere") and Il Divo's cover of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself".
Toni Braxton and Il Divo perfomed at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, singing the tournament's official song "Time of Our Lives".
