Ah Mes Amis! It's Juan's Birthday!!!!

(Let me take this time to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! I usually only say that at this time anyway since it takes a while for the idea to settle into my head. It usually takes me about two weeks before I'm used to righting the new year on my homework, so here's my belated new year wish.)

Juan Diego Florez. Well, we all know who that is, don't we?
Oh you know, the little tenor who broke not just one, but TWO encore traditions in the course of a year.
Did you know it was his birthday? That's what I'm here for.
Let's take a look at some of his famous roles and some of my favorite clips:

Let's start with the obvious: "Ah Mes Amis...Pour mon ame"
"Una Furtiva Lagrima"
"A Te O Cara"
"Ecco ridente in cielo"
"Cessa di piu resistere"
"A leve toi soleil"
"La donna e mobile"
"Sogno soave e casto"
"Pour me rapprocher de Marie" (listen to that Db and tell me that's not one of the most beautiful things ever)
and extensive coverage on his wedding??

Happy Birthday Juan!!!! WE LOVE YOU! (but mainly me =])

Happy Listening!!!! =)
