Why languages students should listen to Il Divo
Share This Article:
For those who don’t know, Il Divo is a multinational group, straddling the worlds of classical and pop music. The band consists of American tenor David Miller, Spanish baritone Carlos Marìn, French pop singer Sébastien Izambard and Swiss tenor Urs Bühler, and has released eight albums and has enjoyed a lot of success over the past decade. However, I would like to write about why I believe that languages students in particular should listen to Il Divo’s music. They are multinational. Each member of Il Divo comes from a different part of the world: America, Spain, France and Switzerland. The name of the band is Italian for the "divine", and they were formed in the UK. Indeed, Urs speaks German and French, Carlos speaks Spanish and Sébastien speaks French. Their common language, however, is English. They sing in a variety of languages. Il Divo has recorded songs in Italian, French and Spanish, as well as in English - so listening to their music is a great way of improving your linguistic skills and abilities.
