Andrea’s music overflows with romance and soundtracks wedding, proposals and intimate moments worldwide. But the Italian tenor has shared a little of his own beautiful love life during an emotional performance with his own wife. We’re used to hearing the opera star’s beautiful voice, but not to seeing him dance – and then the besotted couple seal the special moment with a tender kiss at the end.
Veronica, of course, is better known as her husband’s manager, rather than singing partner. She is Andrea’s second wife. The pair meet in 2002 but only tied the knot in 2014.
Their very special moment was part of a live show at the grand Hollywood Dolby Theatre, which was built in 2001 as the primary site for the annual Oscars ceremony.
Although the show also included duets with vocal powerhouses Ariana Grande and Nicole Scherzinger, the award for the most romantic song of the night definitely went to the Bocellis. You can watch it in full below.
Andrea, himself, starts the performance of Cheek to Cheek alone on stage.
Veronica comes on to the delight of the crowd and joins in. She impresses everyone with her rather sweet and melodic voice, while two ballroom couples swirl around them on the stage.
Apart from the title itself, the song is sung almost entirely in Italian, but the sentiment is crystal clear.
They harmonise perfectly until the bridge when they both sing the classic line, “Heaven, I’m in heaven…”
Rather than complete the phrase “when we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek”, they demonstrate instead.
The song was originally from the iconic 1935 movie musical Top Hat and performed by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
The silver screen stars were, of course, best known for their extraordinary dance routines, so it seems fitting that Andrea and his wife should also flash some fancy footwork themselves.
After a little shuffle arm in arm they resume the song and finish with one last “cheek to cheek” when they press their faces together and then Veronica turns and gives her smiling hubby a kiss.
