Andrea Bocelli is a blind opera tenor who hails from Tuscany, Italy. He had released one album before teaming up with Sarah Brightman for the duet Time to Say Goodbye. For both artists, this was to be their most successful single and helped make Andrea's two later albums instant successes worldwide.

The story behind this marvellous production is that Sarah was in a cafe one day and heard the theme of the song played. She was very impressed and told Frank Peterson about it. The two then proceeded to track down the original singer, who was Andrea Bocelli. His original, solo-voiced rendition was featured on his debut album. Frank then adapted that original version, added some additional lyrics, re-orchestrated and re-arranged it for the duet.

Although the original had had some success, it was only with Sarah Brightman that it became a worldwide phenomenon.
