Here's Everything You Should Know About Musician Matteo Bocelli

We have no doubts that acclaimed singer-songwriter Matteo Bocelli will be the next big thing.

His powerful single, "Solo," was released earlier this year to become a romantic pop track for the ages, proving he's more than just the son of world-famous Italian opera tenor and instrumentalist Andrea Bocelli. The father-son duo actually duetted on the single "Fall on Me," featured in Disney'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. We believe this talented performer has an even bigger future ahead of him, and here's everything we learned about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
