Il Divo--When I was channelsurfing a couple of weeks back, I caught the tail-end of a commercial with a terribly familiar song sung in Italian by four men, but I wasn't quick enough to get any pertinent info. I tracked these guys down by Googling for "four tenors" and found out about their self-titled CD, which I bought as soon as it came out last weekend, and man, now I'm in loooove. Not only do they have great pipes, they're all cute to boot, and "Unbreak My Heart" (which was the song I heard) never sounded better as "Regresa A Mi".
