Take one Michael Parkinson show, add one American, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a Swiss...
a light dusting of 5 million worldwide sales of the self-titled debut album, and the result is - Il Divo! Ever since their first appearance on Parky in 2004 they've not looked back. Last year they took the world by storm, and now they return for more of the same with 'Ancora'.
The new album takes original music and well-known tracks, both old and new, and turns them into unique masterpiece via their beautiful and distinctive voices. Modern classics such as Mariah Carey's 'Hero' and Eric Carmen's 'All By Myself' are given a refined classical twist with lyrics sung in Spanish and a rousing Italian version of 'Unchained Melody'.
Among the originals are the beautifully stripped down 'Si Tú Me Amas' and the stunning duet 'I Believe In You' performed in English and French with Celine Dion.
