Andrea Bocelli’s story is so encouraging, that his mum had the courage to have her baby despite difficult circumstances. Although opera singing may not be everyone’s first choice of music, no one can dispute that he has an amazing voice and is a gifted singer. What might the world have missed had his mum taken the doctors’ advice and had him aborted?

May many more mums be brave enough to make the same choice Andrea Bocelli’s mum did.
