Andrea Bocelli Sings 'Amazing Grace' In Empty Plaza In Milan

World-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli delivers a moving performance of ‘Amazing Grace’ during his Music For Hope concert.


This classic hymn was originally written by John Newton. John wrote the hymn as a way of giving thanks to the Lord after He granted him new life.

As a sailor, John was known for his crude language and actions. But one day, John found himself caught in the middle of a terrible storm. After spending hours at the helm of the ship, John’s thoughts began to turn to God.

After surviving the weather, John started his life as a Christian and dedicated himself to serving our Father.

“Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed”

This Easter, as many people were sheltered at home due to the Coronavirus, Andrea put on a stunning performance at the empty Piazza Duomo in Milan.

The event drew over 26 million views online and became a trending video across social media as it brought so many people together to worship God. “That feeling of being at the same time alone – as we all are in the presence of the Most High – yet of expressing the voice of the prayer of millions of voices, has deeply impressed and moved me,” Andrea told FOX News.

There is nothing greater than praising our Lord and this powerful rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’ was exactly what we all needed to hear right now.
