Andrea Bocelli leads strong voices through ‘Amazing Grace’


What a crowd in St. Peter’s Square!

Andrea Bocelli, the gold standard of tenors in this era, really needs no introduction. His versatile voice has allowed him to become popular in both classical and pop music, while his origin story would be perfect if Marvel ever decided to make an operatic super hero.

This event was the 38th annual convocation, during which Pope Francis welcomed thousands and spoke of the “power of ecumenical prayer” and promoted unity between all Christians.

So sit back and enjoy as he leads us, and Pope Francis, through “Amazing Grace”.
