“On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I’m honored and happy to answer ‘Sì’ (yes) to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan,” Bocelli responded o social media.

The performance, streamed live globally, is intended as a message of love, healing and hope to Italy and the world.

“History teaches us that after this is over will come a spring brighter than any we remember. Then we will have an unmissable opportunity to start fresh with a new system of values,” Bocelli wrote on Instagram. “We will smile, then – soon – about this upset, we will remember and we will tell our children and grandchildren all about the time when the world warned us, stopped us, before it was too late.”
