Andrea Bocelli has given the world beautiful music. It may not have turned out this way. When his mother was carrying him she was advised to have an abortion. Bocelli said doctors put ice on her stomach, and later suggested she have an abortion, since they believed the baby would be born with some disability. “But the young brave wife decided not to abort, and the child was born,” the singer recounted, sitting at the piano. “That woman was my mother, and I was the child.” Watch the YouTube video of this heart wrenching story of how Andrea Bocelli almost did not make it into this world.
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
