Tenor Jonathan Cilia Faro and Academy Award winner Vanessa Campagna have joined forces for the new single “O Sole Mio / It’s Now Or Never” which is available now. Also, available, an artistic video, showing a love story come to life like no other. The song’s name, “O Sole Mio,” can be interpreted as “My Sun” in English. The lyrics depict the beautiful Naples scenery and the comforting embrace of sunlight and the love of a woman. “O Sole Mio / It’s Now Or Never” is the follow-up single to Faro’s Parla Piu Piano, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the greatest love song from The Godfather movie, and is released through Stradivari Classics.
“Ole Sole Mio” was also recorded by Elvis Presley and released in 1960 and is one of his most popular singles with over twenty million copies sold. Luciano Pavarotti recorded it and won a Grammy in 1980 for his version. It has also been recorded by Andrea Bocelli, Marlo Lanza, and Enrico Caruso, and included on Jonathan Cilia Faro’s new album Romantico due out Friday, September 15.
“In 2003 after overcoming many difficulties, I finally arrived in America,” shares Jonathan Cilia Faro. “For me, the great American dream is called ‘Elvis.’ After watching a documentary about how “The King of Rock & Roll” loved Luciano Pavarotti and how he heard Elvis’ version of “O Sole Mio, It’s Now or Never.” It is music that makes the world fall in love. So now let’s enjoy this tribute to two musical giants who continue to make us dream through their songs. It was great being able to bring to life once again music from the great Elvis and Luciano with the help of Vanessa Campagna.”
