In Malta, two of the world’s greatest tenors casually started singing along to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’. And it was just that.
Last year, Bocelli was visiting friend, opera star and fellow tenor Joseph Calleja, in Malta. They were enjoying a casual night-time meal together at Calleja's home, when the Italian singer’s famous duet was played.
The two began to sing along.
And thankfully, the spontaneous and joyous moment was caught on camera.

The younger Maltese tenor initially sings along to Ed Sheeran’s lines, but then there’s a wonderful moment when Andrea Bocelli enters for his familiar operatic section of the pop duet.
It’s proof that, for these incredible singers, the joy of music is always there. Even over a Mediterranean dinner.
