Iconic Tenor Andrea Bocelli and his daughter, rising star, Virginia Bocelli have released the duet “Dare To Be” (From The Motion Picture Cabrini), an original song written for the end credits of the upcoming Angel Studios film Cabrini

“Dare To Be” is available through Decca Records, ahead of the film’s release on March 8, International Women’s Day. The film also features Virginia Bocelli’s remarkable acting debut.

“Dare To Be captures the spirit of Francesca Cabrini, who spent her life bringing light and hope to those who were living on the margins,” shares Ryan Svendsen, Head of Music for Angel Studios. “She Dared To Be, and then, with incredible faith and tenacity, turned her dream of an Empire of Hope into reality. We are honored to have the musicality of Andrea Bocelli and Virginia Bocelli whose stunning vocals in this beautifully crafted duet amplify the embodiment of Cabrini’s essence within this incredible film.”
