The four male singing sensation, Il Divo (Italian for ‘divine male performer’) will peform a divine concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion this evening. You may already know that this multi-national vocal group, who sing operatic pop, were put together by music mogul, Simon Cowell. After hearing Andrea Bocelli sing, Cowell was inspired to recreate the style and sound of ‘The Three Tenors’ and established the Il Divo project. After two years, the foursome that was selected consisted of French pop singer Sébastien Izambard, Spanish baritone Carlos Marín, American tenor David Miller, and Swiss tenor Urs Bühler.

What you probably don’t know is that Il Divo was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records when named the Most Multinational UK No.1 Album Group in 2006. You probably also didn’t know that their first, self-titled CD went multiplatinum, and took the number one spot on the charts in a total of 13 countries around the world. And did you know that they have sold over 26 million albums worldwide to date? You don’t achieve those kinds of accolades by being hyped by the music industry. When the rest of the music industry takes note, especially icons like Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, music lovers will too. Il Divo has previously toured with Streisand on a 20-concert tour, and cut a duet with Dion.

The music in their set list is as diversified as probably the personalities of the four-man group, given they come from different countries of origin. Their 2012 tour is comprised of two acts of ten songs each. Although I don’t usually present the complete set list, just to let you know what you’ll miss if you don’t get ticket to see this fabulous foursome.
Act One
Come What May
Dove L’Amore
Adagio
Nella fantasia
Medley (La Vida Sin Amor / Ti Amero / Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman / Angelina)
Don’t Cry For Me Argentina
Everytime I Look At You
Passera
Unchained Melody
My Way

Act Two
Senza Parole
Melanconia
Si Tu Mi Amas
Mama
Hallelujah
Crying
Ven A Mi
Regressa Mi
Por Que Tu Me Amas
Somewhere

“Ven A Mi” and “Sensa Parole” are new songs on this tour. The pop songs and classics are performed in Spanish, English, Italian, and French. Like Il Divo’s music; the audience at the Pavilion is expected to be as diversified, attracting a wide range of ethnicities. Tickets still available at The Pavilion Box Office  The gates open at 7 p.m., Il Divo 8 to 8:55 p.m., intermission 8:55 to 9:15 p.m. and Il Divo 9:15 to 10:25 p.m. The House of Blues Hospitality Tent opens earlier at 6 p.m. The whole world has embraced Il Divo; The Woodlands should do so too.
