Andrea Bocelli: The man with the 'voice of God'

The Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, a man with the "voice of god", according to one of his musical contemporaries, is the biggest selling artist in the classical world.

He is credited with helping to popularise opera, although some purists are critical of his use of a microphone.

Andrea Bocelli is in the UK at the moment and he has been speaking to Today programme reporter Tom Bateman.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 20 November.
