Matteo was born in October 1997. He celebrated his 21st birthday this year.
Not only does he look like his father, but he has inherited his musical genes too. His honeyed tones can be heard on Andrea Bocelli’s new album Sì.
Matteo appears on Andrea Bocelli's single Fall On Me from the new album Sì. The pair sing in English and Italian in a heartfelt tribute to each other. Matteo also sings on the album track Ven a Mi with his father. The single and album are is out now.
Matteo’s brother, Amos Bocelli, also features on their father’s new album. He plays piano on acoustic version of Sono Qui (I am Here) and Ali di Libertà.
Andrea and Matteo Bocelli’s single Fall On Me will be used as the soundtrack to the end credits of the upcoming Disney movie The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, which will be released on 2nd November. The film stars Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman.
The pair recently performed their single Fall On Me on the American TV show Dancing with the Stars whilst the professional dancers performed a nutcracker-inspired dance.
Andrea Bocelli has reflected on making music with his son and explained to Billboard what it was like to blend their voices:
“Technically they are very different, but there is one thing that makes them most similar: the attitude. That characteristic way of expressing yourself through your voice.
“This makes Matteo and I very similar. But that is something that you cannot learn, that cannot be taught. That is something you are born with.”
