When I came to the United States of America, I, like every new immigrant that has had the courage to leave one’s own country for a better life, had so many dreams. It was in 2008 after my major concert at the United Nations General Assembly that I realized that I wanted to fight for an opportunity to make my dreams become my reality. And so, I did!
I have been privileged to have received accolades in renowned venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Madison Square Garden, but as an artist, I wanted to leave a legacy. It was in 2009 when I launched my first album, titled “Mamma,” as a tribute to my dear mother, who died in 2005 from cancer, and it was in 2012 in New York that I launched “The Impossible Dream,” my second album.
As I mark my tenth year in the United States, I believe that the time has arrived for me to produce my third album. In doing so, I want to pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of the composition of the song “Volare,” written by Domenico Modugno, better known as “Mr. Volare.” My single, however, will not only include the song “Volare;” it will also include the bonus song “Piove” (known as “Ciao, ciao bambina”), also of the same composer.
