Alfie Boe headlined the Belfast leg of BBC Proms in the Park this year (although you wouldn’t known it had you relied on BBC Red Button service to watch) and once again ensured that he captured our hearts with his spine tingling performance.
Beginning with the obligatory Bring Him Home, Alfie then went on to sing La Donna E Mobile – one he acknowledged he had not sung for a while. For many of Alfie’s fans this would have been the first time they had heard him sing an operatic aria and it was sublime! A richer, more mature sound than that on the Classic FM album, Alfie has just made us want to hear more, more, more!
Thankfully, the performance has found it’s way onto Youtube – thanks Marcia for sharing:
As you can see, Alfie’s first attempt at lyric writing, for My Heart is Yours, is a success; did we expect anything else you might ask? “The Stars, they dance when you are near” – Sarah Boe is a lucky woman although Alfie is always the first to admit, when interviewed, that he is the lucky one. Suffice to say, the romantic lyrics will fit right in with the romantic nature of the upcoming album, Serenata. Speaking of which, the next promotional video was released yesterday:
Serenata is released on 17th November, if you haven’t pre-ordered yet, just click on the image below:
Don’t forget to tune into ITV at 7pm tonight (UK only, sadly) for Sunday Night at the London Palladium!
