The Italian opera singer will perform live on Easter Sunday from Italy’s empty Duomo Cathedral.

Andrea Bocelli will live stream a special Easter concert at the empty historic Duomo di Milano cathedral in Milan, Italy. The concert, titled ‘Andrea Bocelli: Music For Hope’, will feature the renowned opera singer performing sacred pieces such as ‘Ave Maria’ and ‘Sancta Maria’. He will be accompanied by the cathedral’s organist Emanuele Vianelli.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the cathedral remains closed for the public. Viewers can stream the concert on Bocelli’s YouTube channel at 6pm GMT on Sunday, April 12.

The COVID-19 outbreak have altered the lives of everyone around the world. Among the countries greatly affected by the virus is Italy, which have taken drastic measures in order to contain the disease. Bocelli’s special performance aims to promote a message of “love, healing, and hope to Italy and the world”.

Bocelli is also scheduled to perform for the ‘One World: Together At Home’ live stream telecast special on April 18. He will be joined by artists such as Billie Eilish, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and many more.
