One of the most charming things about teen operatic trio (aside from the mere fact that there exists a "teen operatic trio") Il Volo is the fact that these three lads are typical young men, despite their love of what some might consider pretty mature music. When they visited Yahoo! Music two years ago--following a showstopping performance on "American Idol"--the guys showed up in hoodies, and were full of laughs and jokes.
They also have an age-appropriate appreciation for the music their fellow "boy bands" are making--even if that music happens to be pop, not classical. Il Volo is putting out a new release, We Are Love (Special Edition), on May 28 which includes five newly recorded songs including this cover of One Direction's "Little Things." Here's an exclusive premiere of Il Volo's take on the tune. If you like the 1D ballad, all we can say is, you're going to swoon over this version!
Il Volo will also be embarking on a North American tour late this summer, starting August 25 in Vancouver. The trek follows last year's successful headlining tour, plus a spot opening up for legendary vocalist Barbra Streisand.
