Andrea Bocelli on "Abortion" - A story that touches hearts

The world-renowned artist shared the surprising truth years ago during a concert in Italy. As Andrea sat at the piano, a lovely melody effortless pouring from his fingertips, he told his mother’s story.

Apparently, while pregnant with Andrea, Edi rushed to the hospital with appendicitis. As doctors treated her, they also suggested she abort singer Andrea Bocelli.

“They told her it was the best solution because the baby would be born with some disability,” Andrea told the audience.

When Andrea told the story, he kept the identity of mother and baby secret from the crowd at first. But then he revealed the “young, brave wife” who decided not to abort was, in fact, his mom.

“That woman was my mother and I was the ,” he revealed. “Maybe I’m partisan, but I can say that it was the right choice.”

Andrea Bocelli’s Inspirational Story Of How All Lives Matter

Not long after his birth in 1958, doctors diagnosed Andrea with congenital glaucoma, a disease that left him partially blind. Then, at the age of 12, Andrea lost his vision completely during a game of football after he was hit on the head. And yet, he’s living proof that a disability doesn’t have to hold you back from pursuing and achieving your dreams.

“I hope that this could encourage many mothers who sometimes might find themselves in difficult situations but want to save the life of their baby,” Andrea says.

Honesty is the best policy.

Andrea Bocelli is one of my favorite vocalists + opera singer. I've enjoyed his songs even though I don't know Italian or Spanish language.

Recently I discover a song "Perfect" and posted a blog on here to share with Asia Friendfinder bloggers. I Googled and listened many of Andrea's songs on YouTube. One of the video that Andrea said about his mom rejected doctor's suggestion to have an abortion. If his mom listened, the world would have missed out on the blessing of his angelic voice. So, Andrea shares his mom’s story in the hopes it will save even more lives.

Listened to Andrea talked about his story that brought tears to my eyes.

Honesty is the best policy.
