World-famous tenor duo Andrea Bocelli and Maltese Joseph Calleja were spotted on social media singing a rendition of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ at Calleja’s Mellieħa home. 

The Italian tenor is in Malta to film content for an upcoming project and will feature the island’s picturesque views. 

With both tenors shining a light on Malta as hub of music and culture, it’s no wonder that Calleja, as a Maltese Cultural ambassador, was thrilled to welcome Andrea Bocelli to our island.


Singing to Andrea's song with Andrea! What a great artist, and a pleasure to catch up with him during his filming in Malta for his next project! #andreabocelli #maltesetenor #MalteseCulturalAmbassador
