Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble are the three members of IL VOLO.

In 2009 they individually participated in a talent show on Rai 1 called “Ti lascio una canzone,” which translates into “I’ll leave you with a song.” During this program they were noticed by Michele Torpedine  (a well-known Italian manager who has managed the careers of successes like Andrea Bocelli, Zucchero, Giorgia, and Biago Antonacci). Torpedine decided to take the singers under his wing and embark on an international artistic journey relying on the boys’ vocal talents singularly as well as a trio. From this point, an extraordinary journey began that would make them the first Italian artists in history to sign a contract with a major American music label. Their self-titled debut album, “Il Volo,” received Platinum certification and made it to the Top Ten in the Billboard charts.

In 2010 they were the only Italian artists asked to participate in Quincy Jones “We are The World for Haiti” charity single. They performed alongside 80 other international artists; such as Celine Dion, Bono, Lady Gaga, Carlos Santana, Barbra Streisand, Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Natalie Cole, and Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.

In 2011 Il Volo received two Latin Grammy nominations for the release of their album “Special Christmas Edition,” which sold millions of copies. That same year Il Volo embarked on their first international tour and continued touring for four straight years.  The tour was televised in their first ever concert special and was re-aired over a thousand times.

In 2012 Barbra Streisand invited Il Volo to be an integral part of her “Back to Brooklyn” tour, where the group performed with her for 12 dates in America and Canada. The tour introduced the duet “We are Love” with Placido Domingo and Ero Ramazzotti. Their first ever live album titled “Il Volo Takes Flight” was released in 2012. The hit “Il Volo” rose to first and second place in the Billboard Classical Crossover charts.

In 2013 they released “Buon Natale – The Christmas Album” worldwide, which included some of the most famous classic Christmas hits.

The group has had many busy years of almost completely uninterrupted activity between different initiatives and projects that also cover certain charities.  Il Volo has also used their time to be UNICEF ambassadors.
