WINNER: Mandy B Rivera!

The Italian operatic trio Il Volo might be young, but don't let that fool you into thinking that a lack of years translates into a lack in talent. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Il Volo has delighted millions of pop opera fans across the globe, appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Ellen,” and “Rachel Ray.”

Piero Barone (19), Gianluca Ginoble (18) and Ignazio Boschetto (18), released their self-titled debut album in April 2011. The album debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart and has gone on to sell over one million copies worldwide.

Il Volo will take the stage at the Amway Center on Sunday, September 22, at 7:30pm. Want to go?

I'm giving away two tickets to see Il Volo live from a Club Level Suite at the Amway Center, plus dinner for two at Magic Grill and complimentary parking at GEICO Garage
Amway Center.
