Andrea Bocelli Net Worth
Andrea Bocelli net worth: Andrea Bocelli is an Italian tenor, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has a net worth of $40 million. Andrea Bocelli, one of the greatest singing talents in the world today, had poor eyesight since birth and went blind at the age of 12 following a football accident. Andrea started his singing career in the late 1980s, when he became a piano-bar performer throughout Italy. However, he became known to the wider audience after he won the Newcomers section of the Sanremo Music Festival in 1994. Since then, Bocelli has recorded 14 solo studio albums, of both pop and classical music, 3 greatest hits albums, as well as 9 complete operas, selling over 80 million records worldwide. However, it was his participation in Pavarotti's 1992 hit "Miserere" and Fornaciari's 1993 world tour helped propel him to international attention. Thus, he eventually turned into the most-selling artist in the history of classical music and established himself as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary opera during the late 20th century. He was honored with numerous awards and recognitions for his work, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is also a great philanthropist and he has participated in charity concerts, such as the Michael Jackson benefit concert in 1998, the Memorial Concert at Ground Zero, in New York City for the victims of the September 11 attacks, and the Music of Asia festival in 2004, for the Indian tsunami appeal. Also, he launched the Andrea Bocelli Foundation in 2011 to fund medical research and fight poverty. Bocelli now lives with his girlfriend and manager, Veronica Berti, who's expecting his third child. He has two children with former wife Enrica Cenzatti.
