Andrea Bocelli and daughter Virginia Bocelli, 11, perform Hallelujah duet live

Andrea Bocelli sings with his family on BBC Breakfast

During the lockdown Christmas, Andrea Bocelli’s daughter Virginia Bocelli made her professional debut at just 8-years-old.

The father and child performed a goosebump-inducing performance of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah in a special live-streamed festive broadcast from the Teatro Regio di Parma.

In the three years since, Virginia has been touring with her father Andrea and brother Matteo Bocelli, before the trio released A Family Christmas album last year.

In fact, a deluxe version (including a Let It Snow duet between Andrea and Virginia) is out this festive season.

In the meantime, the father and daughter have recently appeared on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing where they performed their Hallelujah duet in front of dancers in the ballroom.

Speaking exclusively with last Christmas, Virginia admitted she was terrified to perform live for the first time aged 8.

She told us: “The first times I sang live, I was actually very scared but after a few times you start to get more comfortable. I started to get anxious again, singing Over The Rainbow [on the Christmas album]… It could go any way, really good or really bad. If you do well, after a few times you start calming yourself down, like ‘Ok, every other time I did good.’ It’s a learning experience.”

A Family Christmas (Deluxe Edition) is out now.
