A song with a history as dynamic as this will never be forgotten. "I Will Always Love You" is a title that almost every person, regardless of age, can recognize. Most people know that this tune is an original by Dolly Parton, but both she and Whitney Houston have made the song legendary!
Due to its overwhelming popularity, "I Will Always Love You" is a favorite that many talented singers since have graced their audiences with – just like Il Divo has done here! Their performance is one that devoted fans and newcomers will remember forever...
This live performance by Il Divo is one example of a rendition of "I Will Always Love You" that has actually done the original justice. The song's challenging scale, the need for perfect vocal control and the intricate lyricism all make it easy for novice artists to perform incorrectly – but not Il Divo.
These four talented men (and their enormous voices) fill the entire auditorium and overcome the people sitting just feet away! Their beautiful sound is so powerful that it's bound to leave you with chills!
Before the performance begins, the lights dim slowly and a spotlight lands on Sébastien Izambard. Then the real magic begins! Completely in Spanish, the masterful opera singer opens the song with a gentle, subtle tone in his voice.
One by one, the rest of the quartet adds layers of sound in perfect harmony. The result is so incredible that people from all over the globe have rushes online to view the performance for themselves!
In a rare one-on-one interview, Sébastien spoke to AZCentral about why the group decided to include a Spanish aspect in their music after doing so well beforehand.
"There is such an amazing repertoire in the Latin field.... It takes people a while to get used to the unknown. I didn’t know most of these songs myself. But people are very excited about it."
Individually and together, their voices are powerful enough to elicit tears and cheers from those watching live and online.
By the audience's reaction, it's clear Il Divo delighted the crowd with one of the most classic love songs of all time. The moment the talented men stop singing, the crowd rises to their feet and gives them a standing ovation.
The experience of watching Il Divo live was heartwarming, and hearing them sing in the video will blow you away.
