Andrea Bocelli's Life Beats - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Andrea Boccelli singing beautiful Italian words and phrases,
touching my mind with his perfection of tone and dialect.
Heart responding to his voice, reaching out to grasp feelings
of the past, finding familial ties still readily intact.
Life beats vibrating with melodies, being sung operatically,
and sent straight to our souls, lifting us spiritually to
heights of intense freedom and happiness.

    You express with thoroughness what makes an operatic voice so exciting to us, especially the tenor voice like Bocelli's, both strong and beautiful. I read a comment Bocelli made about his great gift; he said his voice has a quality that Italians call MESTO, it's a sadness that is always present regardless of the subject being sung. That's the complexity of his kind of singing and your poem does justice to that complexity. LIFE BEATS is a good title, it has multiple meanings: the rhythms of the singing, but also the sheer glory of such a voice conquers life's setbacks. (Report) Reply
