Amazing Grace

We will not be posting for the rest of this week. We are taking a break for Thanksgiving. However, we hope to have a surprise for all of you when (and if ) you return next Monday. As we contemplate all the things we have to be thankful, most of us would agree that the greatest thing we  are grateful for is our precious Lord and Savior. We, Dee and Deb, are also grateful to all of you, our dear readers. We hope you are blessed by the following youtube video.

These four tenors are Il Divo. (which mean male diva in Italian).

From Wikipedia we learn “The idea behind Il Divo's creation came to Cowell after hearing Andrea Bocelli singing Con te partirò while watching The Sopranos. Aware of this new appreciation for lyrical voices and classical music, he decided to form a multinational quartet (the members hail from Spain, Switzerland, France, and the United States, and the name being in Italian) that tried to recreate the style of The Three Tenors.

Simon Cowell conducted a worldwide search for young singers who were willing to embark on the Il Divo project, which lasted two years, from 2001 until December 2003, when the fourth member of Il Divo, American tenor David Miller, was signed. The well-established formation of Il Divo comprises a renowned Spanish opera and Spanish baritone, Carlos Marín; two classically trained tenors, Swiss Urs Bühler and American David Miller; and a French pop singer, Sébastien Izambard.

Il Divo sings in English, Italian, Spanish, French, and Latin. Il Divo was named the Most Multinational UK No.1 Album Group in the 2006 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records
