Ed Sheeran’s last album ‘Divide’ was a major hit and the world tour that followed was one of the biggest in recent history. Ed Sheeran has had some amazing guest artists such as Sir Elton John join him on his tours. This time around, back in 2017 concert at the Wembley Stadium, Ed Sheeran called up the legendary Italian singer, songwriter, and composer Andrea Bocelli.
Andrea Bocelli has sold over 80 million tracks worldwide and his duet “The Prayer” with Celine Dione for the animated movie ‘Quest for Camelot’ won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. In 2006 he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to music.
“Perfect Symphony” is, in fact, a perfect symphony of the English and Italian versions of “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Ed Sheeran performs the song up to the chorus and Andrea Bocelli takes over from there to give a beautiful rendition of the Italian translation of the song.
Ed Sheeran surprises fans when he joined Andrea Bocelli to sing the third chorus in Italian. It was a beautiful re-creation of the already-beautiful track.
