Simon Cowell + quartet from Spain, France, Switzerland & U.S.A = Il Divo. 3 European Tenors + 1 American Tenor, that's what Il Divo is all about. Il Divo also means Star (or celebrity) in Italian.
I'm quite surprised no one has written a review about this multinational operatic pop vocal group created and managed by Simon Cowell (judge of American Idol & Britain's Got Talent). I love operatic pop music. It's energetic, powerful and pleasant to my ears. Cool!!!
Carlos Marín (Spainish opera & baritone), Urs Bühler (Swiss tenor), David Miller (American classical trained tenor), and Sébastien Izambard (French pop singer) are the four musicans who formed Il Divo. The first album of this young group was released in 2004, titled Il Divo (album). They sing two of my favorite songs: Unbreak my heart (a song previously sung by Toni Braxton) & Unchained Melody in this album. They have since released Ancora in 2005, Voices & Siempre in 2006 & The Promise in 2008.
As a group, it is unbeatable. The Best! I simply love their vocals and presentations.
For your listening pleasure, here are some of my favorites:
