How can I sing like Andrea Bocelli?
Well I just really love to sing... And ever since I came across Bocelli a few years ago I've been trying to sound like him. I have somewhat of a shaky voice, when I sing low notes and some high notes. Is there any method or tips to strengthen my voice? Thanks for any help:)

There is only ONE Andrea, sorry. You are you, so please try to discover your OWN voice instead of copy-catting others.
In fact, it takes obviously some talent, some luck, LOTS of patience, diligence, courage, hard work, dedication and LOTS of lessons with a GOOD vocal teacher. Besides, your voice will keep maturing until you are in your mid-30s so you need a lot of TIME as well. Therefore:
THE ONLY SAFE way to learn the correct singing techniques & to improve properly IS to take OFFLINE face-to-face singing lessons with a fully trained vocal teacher! The teacher HAS TO BE in the same room with you, so that he/she can give you proper feedback. However, even the best teachers in the world cannot make wonders, so please be realistic with this. Singing lessons are NOT going to help if one is tone-deaf!
Please do NOT rely on any dodgy web tutorials because that way you can misunderstand things VERY EASILY and develop bad habits, hoarseness, vocal nodules and other nasties IN NO TIME, and even though you would sound good! It is always much wiser to invest a little bit of your money/time to face-to-face lessons rather than wasting the same amount of money (or even more!) to frequent ear-nose-throat specialist visits due to aforementioned problems, so please reconsider this. If you can't afford vocal lessons, then joining a choir is the only SAFE alternative option. And believe me, but even MANY of those who have music as their hobby DO take lessons as well!
Always remember to warm up your voice properly, but please know your limits and don't overdo your voice! Remember the diaphragmatic support, do not strain your throat too much! Also, remember good body posture!
Avoid fizzy drinks (burp danger), dairy products (mucus risk), caffeinated products (coffee & tea included, they dry up your throat) and spicy food (irritation risk)! You can consume these things, but NEVER before singing!
Do NOT shout, yell, scream nor otherwise abuse your voice AT ANY TIME! Also, please respect your vocal range; if your teacher says you are, say, more of an alto (baritone if you are male), then you ARE more of an alto (baritone).
DO NOT try to imitate anyone famous, that will usually give you just bad habits and even damage your throat. You are YOU and your voice is unique, so please learn to cherish that. The world does NOT need copycats.
Do NOT sing, whisper, shout, yell nor scream if having a sore throat/cold/flu, Also, do speak as little as you can if you have flu/cold/sore throat!
Remember to drink at least 2 litres of room-temperature still water every day, not just during singing days!
Smoking is a big no-no, as is inhaling secondhand smoke. Also, avoid staying in dusty and/or moldy environment.Source(s): a student of speech-language-voice therapy

I don't see why anyone would want to sing like Andrea Bocelli when there are a lot greater tenors out there. Why not Jonas Kaufmann for example? Not to mention that you may not be a tenor actually. Wanting to sing like a classical crossover singer with an average technique is never a good idea (classical crossover singers either have incomplete training or tend to fake an "operatic" voices), plus you can't sing like someone else, you can only use your own voice.
As the other answerer has mentioned, the best and most safe way to improve properly is to have singing lessons with a fully trained and qualified teacher. Lessons have to be offline and face-to-face because the teacher has to be in the same room with you to spot and correct your mistakes and give you proper feedback.Source(s): Classically trained singer

Are you his age, do you have is biological bone and muscle structure, have you had lessons with a good voice coach as he has. I would suspect no - find a qualified voice coach to help you.Source(s): voice coach/otorhinolaryngology
