Bocelli is scheduled to make a special appearance on the multimedia retailer

romantically beautiful CD. Fans will also have the opportunity to order

Filled with romance and beauty, "Passione" is a lush collection of beautiful
love songs featuring duets with global pop stars Jennifer Lopez and Nelly
Furtado. The album also features an extraordinary duet with the late Edith
Piaf in which the Tuscan tenor sings with one of the greatest French singers
of all time for a new version of "La Vie en Rose." The album reunites Bocelli
with 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, who produced
Bocelli's 2006 release "Amore," which sold more than 4.2 million copies.

Bocelli sings in six languages on the album (Italian, English, French,
Spanish, Portuguese, and Neapolitan) with his unmistakable voice, as Foster
accompanies him on piano, along with Peruvian guitarist Ramon Stagnaro. The
sensual sound is rounded out by Cuban, Brazilian, and Portuguese rhythms and a
63-piece orchestra recorded in London.

Bocelli is an iconic figure in music with a myriad of breathtaking career
achievements to his name. The Italian tenor is the most successful classical
solo artist ever and one of the best-selling artists in music history, period,
with more than 80 million albums sold worldwide. He is also credited with
enabling the core classical repertoire to cross over and find a home atop the
international pop charts, creating a new genre of music along the way. He has
performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes, and the British royal family,
as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup. He has been
praised by such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli (his beloved
teacher and guide), Zubin Mehta, Jose Carreras, Lorin Maazel, Renee Fleming,
and Celine Dion. - -
