If you ask my family or friends who my favourite artist is, they will literally need a second to give you an answer…something more, they all will tell you the same name – Tiziano Ferro.
Tiziano Ferro is an Italian artist – singer, songwriter, producer, author of two books and an incredible person. He’s probably the most famous Italian artist of our time. But his story didn’t start so glamorous.
He struggled to find his place and way to show his music to the world. He weighed 111 kg, no company wanted to sign him claiming that nobody would listen to Italian R&B music. Luckily, they were wrong.
His professional career began in 2001 and that’s when I heard him first. I was a teenager changing her hobbies and interests five times a day. So, when I heard the first single of the cute Italian guy, I was pretty sure that a month later I wouldn’t even remember him…luckily, I was wrong too.
There was something special about him and although in one part of the world he’s just known for singing Xdono, in another one he’s one of the most successful young talents. I’m very happy that I continued to follow his career because day by day, year by year, I witnessed something extraordinary. At first, I didn’t understand his lyrics so I started studying Italian on my own, as a hobby. I’m not perfect but it’s more than enough to know that he’s a true poet and every song is going so deep in my soul and heart that it’s indescribable. And here I am, 13 years later, still admiring his talent and personality.
But why is he so important? Because he’s inspiration and motivation, because he shows that when you’re passionate about something and you love doing it, it doesn’t matter how many doors will be shut in front of you, you just have to keep going.
Because he writes his songs on his own and something more – he writes songs for his colleagues, for young talents that need help to be noticed and he’s giving them a hand by producing their albums. Because he’s not selfish. He’s an example.
Because he doesn’t live on the social media. Yes, you can see his official pages with millions of followers and fans, managed by his team and occasionally he will write a line or two but he doesn’t share every single second of his life. Instead, he works hard, comes back after his long tv/radio pauses and breaks another record that was set by himself with his previous album.
Because he really has much to say and he does it in the right moment. And although I’m really happy for him when he has these pauses (in which he’s still working), I really miss him because his words give me strength and courage and hope…
I just wish he was appreciated even more because he’s a real treasure, a true inspiration and a person who doesn’t take himself too seriously…
What I want to tell you with this post is not only that I respect this person so much but also that you shouldn’t give up on what you love, that we should be kind to each other and that we should treasure the little things in our lives.
His sixth studio album TZN – THE BEST OF TIZIANO FERRO will be out November 25th in 4 different versions.
