Simply astounding and moving...
Wow, from looking at him I had NO IDEA such an amazing sound would come out his mouth!!!!
Made the hair stand up ALL over my arms!
I hope he wins! He SHOULD!
That was absolutely awesome!!! I thought Amanda was gonna launch herself right out of her chair at him for a moment there!
Us American rednecks enjoy a little 'culture' if it's done right! Look how many of us love to see/hear Josh Groban sing in Italian!
Amazing!! I'm not an Opera fan by any means, but that gave me goose bumps!
Thanks for sharing!
Anyone that is interested in the translation:
Nessun dorma, nessun dorma ...
Tu pure, o Principessa,
Nella tua fredda stanza,
Guardi le stelle
Che tremano d'amore
E di speranza.
No one sleeps, no one sleeps...
Even you, o Princess,
In your cold room,
Watch the stars,
That tremble with love
And with hope.
Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
Il nome mio nessun saprà, no, no,
Sulla tua bocca lo dirò
Quando la luce splenderà,
Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzio
Che ti fa mia. But my secret is hidden within me;
My name no one shall know, no, no,
On your mouth I will speak it*
When the light shines,
And my kiss will dissolve the silence
That makes you mine.
Il nome suo nessun saprà
E noi dovrem, ahimè, morir.
No one will know his name
And we must, alas, die.
Dilegua, o notte!
Vanish, o night!
At daybreak, I shall conquer!
* "Dire sulla bocca", literally "to say on the mouth", is a poetic Italian way of saying "to kiss." (Or so I've been told, but perhaps a native speaker can confirm or deny this.) I've also been told that a line from a Marx Brothers movie -- "I wasn't kissing her, I was whispering in her mouth" -- is a conscious imitation of the Italian phrase.
** "Tramontate" literally means "go behind the mountains", but it's the word Italians use for sunset and the like.
HOLY S word!!! I can not believe that! And he's so normal too. It's like he knows he can sing but he's been hiding his talent thinking that he may not be good enough so he spends his life selling phones! Amazing!!!
Thanks MayberrySaint for another great link.
Ok, well at first I did not believe it. The video had to be fake and
the version sounded way too familiar. So I listened to 10 different versions
sung by 6 different artists and none were even close.
It had to be a scam so I looked further and found nothing but
proof it wasn't. Holy s**t it's not a spoof. Wow.
What's even more amazing was Simon was nice. Simon needs a
chicken. It would lighten him up a bit.
Garth Brooks, Journey, ZZ Top, ACDC, and Reba are among some of my favorite artists as are Josh Grobin, and Neil Diamond. DH thinks I'm insane, the kids just shake their heads at me. This man brought tears to my eyes. Mayberry........I can't thank you enough for the link.
