Much of the world first heard acclaimed singer-songwriter Matteo Bocelli on “Fall on Me,” the English/Italian song that he co-wrote for his father Andrea Bocelli’s acclaimed 2018 album, “Sì,” which topped the Billboard 200. The song, which has amassed over 300 million combined global streams, went on to soundtrack Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.”

 

“You need this artist on your radar,” said Euphoria Magazine after Matteo released his fittingly titled debut single “Solo” on Capitol Records in 2021. Combined global streams of the song have surpassed seven million and views of the official video now exceed five million.

 

Pia Toscano made a name for herself as a vocalist with a rich, emotionally transparent voice, clearly influenced by the likes of Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, & Etta James. Performing since the age of four, Toscano was widely considered one of American Idol’s Season 10 frontrunners thanks to her powerhouse vocal ability and undeniable beauty.
