Singing is Believing!

September 12, 2012

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re all having an awesome day. When I went into the playroom this morning, Jella was singing along to a CD of Andrea Bocelli. Have you heard of him? He’s a very talented singer. He’s an Italian tenor who sings opera and pop songs, and he has done awesome performances with many other famous musicians like Celine Dion and Sara Brightman.

Cherry Ot told me that Andrea Bocelli has overcome many challenges. He was born with poor eyesight, and after a soccer accident when we he was 12 years old, he became blind. But that didn’t stop him from shooting for the stars. He first became a lawyer, but since music was his true love, he decided to try to be a singer. When his music was heard by Luciano Pavarotti, another very talented singer, they recorded a song together and received international acclaim. As Cherry-Ot would say, the rest is history! I think it’s awesome that Andrea Bocelli has accomplished so much. He faced his challenges head on and didn’t let anything hold him back or get him down. He’s truly an inspiration to all of us. He’s proof that no matter what obstacles may come your way, you should always believe in yourself and follow your dreams.

And guess what…Andrea Bocelli’s birthday is coming up next week on September 22nd. So happy birthday, Andrea Bocelli! We hope your birthday is critterrific, and we wish all of you a critterrific day, too!
