In the documentary, David also says: “I’ve watched this child grow up since he was a baby and I’ve seen the influence his father Andrea has had on him. And what a good student he is and how much he absorbed just by being in the house of Andrea Bocelli.
“Plus his own work ethic and the way he was raised by his mum, and by Andrea and Veronica. Three parents that have done such a great job.”
