Andrea & Matteo Bocelli perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Oct. 25, 2018. 

Andrea Bocelli and 20-year-old son Matteo romanced The Late Show audience with a sweeping rendition of “Fall On Me” from the legendary Italian tenor's just-released Sí album on Thursday night (Oct. 25). The father-son duo released the single on Sept. 20, and followed it up with versions in languages including French, German and Russian for Disney’s forthcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

A soft piano opened the performance, with both men wearing stylish black suits with bow ties, standing side-by-side on a stage filled with a string and horn section. “I thought sooner or later/ The lights up above/ Will come down in circles and guide me to love/ But I don't know what’s right for me,” sang Matteo Bocelli in a relaxed voice, as the orchestra joined in and his father smiled while waiting his turn at the mic. 

“Fall on me/ With open arms/ Fall on me/ From where you are,” he crooned, as his dad encouragingly patting his shoulder and took over the second verse in Italian, while mixing in the English-language song title.     

   

The music swelling, the two men harmonized powerfully, taking turns singing the English-language verse as the song marched to a dramatic, passionate conclusion.
