Fun Facts About Il Volo: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) They are an  Italian operatic pop boy band, consisting of singers: tenors Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto, and baritone Gianluca Ginoble.

2) The three pop-opera singers started their career in 2009, when they met on the second edition of the Italian RAI TV music competition show Ti lascio una canzone, held at the Ariston Theater in Sanremo.

3) On May 2, 2009, Gianluca Ginoble won the competition, singing Andrea Bocelli's "Il mare calmo della sera".

4) During the competition, the three singers were chosen to perform, as a trio, the Neapolitan classic "'O sole mio". After the competition, they continued to perform together under the names "Tre Tenori", "The Tryo", "Il Trio", and finally in the fall of 2010... "Il Volo" (which translates to "the flight" in Italian).

5) In 2010 the trio participated in the charity single "We Are the World 25 for Haiti", a remake of the 1985 hit song "We Are the World". In February 2010 they performed the songs "Granada" and "Un Amore Così Grande" during the 60th Sanremo Music Festival. Also at that festival the trio performed for Queen Rania of Jordan (Regina Rania di Giordania).

The trio is celebrating the Christmas holidays with their brand new PBS special, "Il Volo Buon Natale," premiering nationally on public television stations beginning November 30th .
