Having sold upwards of 80 million albums worldwide, international superstar Andrea Bocelli has earned the distinction of being the most successful classical solo artist of all time. In his latest project, Cinema, the supremely talented tenor offers his voice to some of the greatest songs from film. The icon paid a visit to our program to discuss the new album, how his faith has informed his art, and his extensive tour schedule, which includes a December 9th performance at Madison Square Garden and stops in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. on the 12th and 13th.
