Italian spinto tenor Franco Corelli praised Bocelli's voice after hearing it for the first time during a master class in 1986, in Turin, and he later gave Bocelli private lessons. Puerto Rican soprano Ana Mara Martnez, who regularly performs with Bocelli, said, More than anything, Andrea has something that is unique in that he brings this light that is always around him. And this purity of heart and beauty of sound just touches the listener. It can't be described. Celine Dion said while introducing him during her Christmas Special for These Are Special Times, in 1998, that if God would have a singing voice, he must sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli, and David Foster, a producer of the album, often describes Bocelli's voice as the most beautiful in the world. Similarly, Jazz singer, Al Jarreau, who performed with Bocelli on the Night of the Proms tour in Europe, in 1995, described him as the most beautiful voice in the world, and American talk show host Oprah Winfrey commented on her talk show that, when I hear Andrea sing, I burst into tears. After attending Bocelli's concert at the Hollywood Bowl in 2009, British-American actress Elizabeth Taylor said, My mind, my soul were transported by his beauty, his voice, his inner being. God has kissed this man and I thank God for it. Taylor had been a passionate fan of Bocelli's since the beginning of his music career in the mid-1990s. Other fans include Prince Albert of Monaco, who invited the tenor to sing at his wedding, as well as Sarah, Duchess of York, and actress Isabella Rossellini.
