At 24, Matteo Bocelli has launched his own successful solo recording career after signing to Capitol Records in 2019.

About the Andrea Bocelli Foundation
The Andrea Bocelli Foundation (ABF) was established in July 2011 by Bocelli family after being inspired by the affection and positivity received from fans and partners around the world. ABF has since grown into an independent non-profit led by world-class professionals that oversee the strategic development of key projects. The Foundation’s core mission is to empower people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy, distress due to illness and social exclusion by promoting and supporting national and international projects that promote the overcoming of these barriers and the expression of their full potential.
Since 2011, ABF has raised approximately 46 million Euros in fundraising efforts resulting in the construction of 9 schools in Italy and Haiti that offer daily access to a world-class education to over 3,500 students. Additionally, ABF has created welfare projects that guarantee access to clean water and basic medical treatment to over 400,000 people living in the most remote and impoverished areas of Haiti. The Foundation also implements and promotes education projects that leverages music as an additional tool for social inclusion and talent development, all in line with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda Goal Number 4.7.
