Superstar Tenor Tells His Story to Encourage Mothers-To-Be

For You From the Word

I am sending him to you for the express purpose that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts. (Colossians 4:8)

For You To Think About

Andrea BotticelliSuperstar tenor Andrea Bocelli (b. 1958), a crossover artist widely regarded as the most popular Italian and classical performer in the world, is also the biggest-selling solo artist in the history of classical music. At the same time, five of his albums have reached the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, placing him squarely in the mainstream of popularity as a pop singer, too.

But Bocelli might never have graced the world with his talent. His mother was treated for appendicitis when she carried him. Doctors advised her to abort. She did not.

“I hope this will encourage many mothers who sometimes find themselves in difficult situations in those moments when life is complicated, but want to save the life of their baby,” said Bocelli, who is blind, in a YouTube video recording telling his story.

“Maybe I’m [biased],” said Bocelli. “But I can say that my mother’s decision was the right choice.”

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,

Help pregnant women who are in complicated situations to have clear thinking. Provide them with support at that difficult hour. Show me what I can do to help.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
