Il Divo

Created by Simon Cowell, the American Idol and UK X-factor judge, Il Divo made their debut in 2005 with a unique mix of pop and classical music. The quadret of David, Sebastien, Urs and Carlos captured the world attention with their appearance and voice. Being endorsed by Opera Winfrey helped Il Divo to land their fame in US pretty well too.

Personally I think Il Divo members can sing pretty well individually, I however don’t think their voices mixed quite perfectly. Anyhow still a good music option, congrats Il Divo, and looks like Simon Cowell will be making another bucket of $$$. Get Il Divo’s CD here
