So good to see a relatively young Luciano having fun with this one. It’s one the few duets he did with pop artists that I liked.. Heart warming to watch as I think Pavarotti envied the freedom some singers had outside classical music. What a nice man too.

And Liza was really on her game here. She looks and sounds adorable.

This one will make you smile. Wonderful….!
