Earlier in 2017 when young Matteo Bocelli participated alongside Jennifer Lopez in the shooting for Guess, people believed him to be just another upcoming model. Little did they know that there is much more to Matteo. He left his audience completely stunned after he performed a duet alongside his iconic Italian tenor dad, Andrea Bocelli.

Matteo performed there in his capacity as a tenor and he was just 18 at the time. March 2017 saw him joining the David Foster and Friends competition which was organized for the Horatio Alger Award in Washington.
