Sunday Song-Alessandro Safina


Earlier this month I was introduced to Alessandro Safina by Natasha who hosts the Sunday Song on her blog 5 Minutes Just for Me

If you have not already read all about him on her detailed post you can do so here. Natasha's Alessandro Safina post

As he is Italian she very kindly mentioned me in this post with the following mention and link.

I hope that Lindy Lou who blogs about her beautiful Italian life in her blog "News from Italy" enjoys today's Sunday Song post about one of my favourite (and most gorgeous!) Italian singers!

I decided that I really should share this golden voiced and good looking singer with you all. Thankyou Natasha for introducing me to an Italian singer all the way from Australia, whom I have to admit although having heard on the radio I really knew nothing about prior to your Sunday Song post.

Firstly here is the song that she chose to share with us followed by my own choices which I found on YouTube

LUNA Alessandro Safina - Moon Alessandro Safina

Then I found this!  As Elton John is a favourite of mine I just had to share it with you as well.

The 2002 version of the famous Elton John's song "Your Song".In this version he appears with Alessandro Safina.

His official website is also published in English Alessandro Safina - The Tenor From Siena. where you can read the rest of his biography ,the first paragraph of which I have reproduced here


The Italian tenor Alessandro Safina – born in Siena – discovered his passion for singing at very early age; he was only nine years old when he started studying music, and immediately showed a specific fondness and talent for classical music. His parents were ardent lovers of the opera, and instilled their son with this passion of theirs from the beginning. He started attending a musical academy when he was twelve years old.
