Andrea Bocelli was initially discovered by Pavarotti — presumably when the late, great tenor from Modena was already losing his hearing. Bocelli had his endorsement, and his career took off like a (very quiet) rocket. Since 1994, he's recorded a bunch of operas (though he's rarely ever performed one, because he's blind) and a gazillion pop records, so far selling over 55 million worldwide. That's more than the combined sales of, say, Maria Callas and Giuseppe di Stefano. Bocelli brings his tenor to Seminole Hard Rock on the 11th and 12th.
