Andrea Bocelli’s Surprise Performance at Easter Mass

Famous tenor Andrea Bocelli decided to attend Mass on Easter Sunday at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Miami Beach, Florida. Not only did he attend, he asked if he could sing “Panis Angelicus” during communion. The church happily obliged him.

To the congregation’s credit, they largely stay focused on receiving the Eucharist instead of the fact that a superstar was in their midst. Of course, some people used their cameras to record the song.

One of those videos is embedded below.
