What's Your Pick Wednesday: "Il canto" Il Volo ft. Plácido Domingo

It's What's Your Pick Wednesday with MNGBlog!

This week we join the worldwide celebration of one of the most accomplished and recognized opera singers in the world, the "King of Opera," Plácido Domingo.

Today you can live stream one of the most highly anticipated concerts of the year, a charity concert and special tribute to Domingo held in Madrid, Spain. The concert also celebrates the Spanish opera singer's 75th birthday and will feature some of the biggest names in Latin and classical music, including Il Volo, Andrea Bocelli, Alejandro Fernández, David Bisbal, Diego Torres, Pablo Alborán, and Dvicio, among others. Organized by the Real Madrid Foundation, all the money raised will go to the Foundation's schools in Mexico.

July 1 finds Domingo as a special guest at Il Volo's tribute to the opera artists who have significantly influenced their career: Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras, and of course Domingo himself. Titled "Una Notte Magica: Tributo ai Tre Tenori," the concert takes place 26 years after those three legendary artists performed together in Rome, where they created one of the greatest musical events of the century.

Il Volo will be backed by the orchestra del Teatro Massimo di Palermo with Domingo as its conductor. "Una Notte Magica: Tributo ai Tre Tenori" will be filmed for American public broadcasting network PBS.

With such magnificent, historic events happening this week, we had to select "Il canto" from Il Volo and Plácido Domingo as our What's Your Pick Wednesday. The track is for sure one of Il Volo's most beautiful collaborations and can be found on their 2012 sophomore album We Are Love as well as on its Spanish market release Más Que Amor.
