We Are Love: Live from The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater was shot in Miami at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in March and aired nationally on PBS in June as Il Volo: We Are Love. The special was produced by Richard Jay-Alexander (Barbra Streisand), directed by Scott Lochmus with Detroit PBS as the producing agent. Grammy-winning producer Humberto Gatica and Italian composer Tony Renis produced the music. Both the CD and DVD feature performances of tracks from their newly released album We Are Love: Special Edition (complete track listing below). Also included is a special duet, “Constantemente Mia,” with Latin singing sensation Belinda as well as the song that launched them to fame in both the U.S. and their homeland, “‘O Sole Mio,” the most popular track from their self-titled Billboard Top Ten debut. Each performance showcases their impressively mature, romantic and powerful voices in front of a 22-piece live orchestra and a fully entranced, sold out crowd.
Il Volo, Piero Barone (19), Gianluca Ginoble (18)and Ignazio Boschetto (18), released their self-titled debut album in April 2011 where is debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. Their astonishing vocals are reflected in their live CD/DVD set “Il Volo Takes Flight Live From The Detroit Opera House” which includes a mix of reimagined classics and original material. Il Volo’s second studio album We Are Love was released last fall as the group finished up a North American headline tour and a guest spot on Barbra Streisand’s tour and in May they released We Are Love (Special Edition) which includes five newly recorded songs including: One Direction’s “Little Things,” Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel,” “Surrender (Torna A Sorrento),” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and West Side Story’s “Maria.” The trio’s live performances have received standing ovations across the U.S. and critical acclaim.
