Created by Simon Cowell, quartet belts out international flavour
Il Divo is the male equivalent of an operatic diva, and in the case of American David Miller opera has been the focus of his career.
In fact, he was singing opera when he got the call in 2004 to join Il Divo.
“It’s not the repertoire I’m accustomed to singing,” Miller said recently from a concert stop in Spain.
“As far as I knew, it was a record company interested in using my voice for its operatic capacities but not to sing opera.”
Only later did Miller discover Il Divo was the brainchild of music impresario and TV singing judge Simon Cowell.
The rest of the group includes French pop singer Sebastien Izambard, classically trained Swiss tenor Urs Bühler and Spanish baritone Carlos Marin.
Eight years later, Miller has an international profile and a bank account that would be the envy of most opera singers.
