Give up your heart before you listen... because you won't own it afterwards! An incredible emotional journey you'll never forget. This is how beautifully a song can be delivered... by the best of the best... Jonathan Antoine... Amazing... Bravo!

Most breath taking song I've ever heard with Jonathan Antoine singing it. Magnificent when first seen live when caught on video.

I actually think this is one of his two best songs :) He sings I Vow the My Country so emotionally it literally makes me wish I could move to the UK and be a citizen. But this song, ah, it's pure magic. His tones, his cadence, his power, it's all here in one song. In fact, I am going to go listen now.

His rendition of this beautiful work is best heard with piano only. While done with orchestration is lovely, I prefer the piano version.

2 Va Pensiero

Only one song is so hard to pick from this young man. He could sing the phone book and it would sound amazing.

Out of the three magnificant solos this young man sings this is my favourite I have heard him sing live and his performance was splendid.

Definitely my favourite. Perfect delivery of arrangement done in Jonathan's exceptional way. I have heard O Sole Mio and Santa Lucia live and therefore I'm spoilt in a way. However, anything he sings reaches and calms my soul.

Jonathan sings this song so beautiful I want to hear it everyday. Stunning!

3 O Sole Mio

Jonathan showcases his God-given talents in this unbelievable rendition of the classic classic. Even better, a youtube clip taken surreptitiously at his performance captures the excitement and entrancement of the audience in their emotional response to his singing. While traditional opera is VERY quiet and sombre, Jonathan's singing lifts peoples' souls and they're cry out with elation and happiness. Jonathan is a beautiful soul with truly unbelievable gifts as showcased in this song.

Jonathan's O Sole Mio is a brilliant work of Art! His voice captures your soul and spirit and raises you in to the most delightful feeling of joy. It's not just his God given Opera Tenor rich voice, but his whole being that transforms you into a world of happiness like you've never experienced! In person, on videos, on BBC radio/wales, when you hear and see him you know what joy and love are all about. It's thrilling to both watch him and to listen to him. Jonathan Antoine has opened a new door in Opera and his "O Sole Mio" will grab you like you can't imagine!

I heard him sing this in June at Hammersmith Odeon, it was amazing! So powerful in a small theatre, it is spine tingling on the album, but live, it was out of this world! I taped it, and it is now my ringtone, I never tire of listening to it!

What an Amazing young Man Jonathan is, Not only does he have The Most Beautiful, Unique voice, but he has such charisma, and a wonderful sense of Humour. He is Kind, Humble, and always has time for his fans. You can't help but love him, and his Fabulous Voice.

4 Santa Lucia

I think Santa Lucia stunned me the most. I was eating pudding while I watched the video, but was so taken aback I just shoveled it in without being aware of it! All I could think was how rich and creamy his voice was and than I was totally confused haahaa This kid knocks me off my feet! What a young man, what a song! Pure Heaven!

A wonderful version of this song, for anyone alone at night time it will bring a lump to your throat. Never been able to hear it without crying, he sings it so beautifully.

The emotions Jonathan puts into this song just reaches deep into your soul. He is such an amazing singer and it shows in this song.

Beautifully sung emotional without being mawkish. I love it.

One of my favorites

7 Empty Chairs

I love all of Jonathan's songs but none of them have touched me like Empty Chairs. I have to listen to this one every day. His performances of it are constantly evolving and the emotion he shows ever growing. The subtleties of Jon's range are becoming richer as well (really noticed this on the Preston performance). Exquisite! I can't imagine how he will sound 10 years from now being this incredible now. KNP Canada

Jonathan's performance of this song is the best I have heard to date, and I have seen the stage show of Les Mis 5 times and also watched the DVD. No one can match him! An incredible young man with a special talent.

Jonathan has a clip from the Preston performance that is hauntingly beautiful. He is so engrossed in the music that the applause shakes him out of the moment and back to reality. I listen to this daily so I guess this is my favorite. - lakewoodgerinurse

Jonathan is beyond brilliant on every level….. He is very special….. A gift to humanity…….. He will contribute much…….. His emotional depth is awesome…….. The subtleties of his voice range are so rich……. One of the greats forever and ever. God bless you Jonathan

This song is thrilling, Jonathan's pure & powerful voice with all it's delicious flavors, beautifully heightens ones excitement and wonder as his perfect tones and diction just deight and thrill you! I love this!

9 Be My Love Be My Love

In this, Jonathan encapsulates you in a beautiful world of passion and romance, like he's singing it to the lady listener. Bringing this song into 2014 is a dream, Mario Lanza brought it to a million $ seller and Billboard #1 charting hit in 1950. Congratulations Jonathan... you stole my heart here... and I want you to keep it! A beautiful experience...

Perfection... What woman would not love this, it is the hight of romance and passion sung by the most beautiful voice ever heard and right from his heart and soul. Breathtaking!

Beautifully sung, what woman could resist!

10 Granada Granada

The Spanish city of Granada... this is an operatic explosion of sweet fire! Oh and so delightful and filled with beauty... the sweetness of Jonathan's voice at times filled with that richness, along with the power packed thrills... jaw dropping! But the soothing rhythm lulls you through a romantic city and dazzles you... with the love for it. The mixture of the sweet and powerful... it's tremendous!

I watched Jonathan at the iTunes Festival as guest of Placido Domingo. I've never heard/seen anything so stunning! Joy flew through the air and bounced off the audience, his magic was everywhere! You'd think he had honey in his mouth it was so beautifully sweet and wonderful, along with his beautiful smiling face! A great joy to hear and see! What a presentation!

13 Ave Maria

Stunningly beautiful. I can not take my eyes off of Jonathan when I watch the YouTube video from December 2013. He sang the song as a duet with Russell Watson. For the Katy Holmes Trust. Outstanding performance. He is a world wide sensation. - Dutchess67

Simply bliss to watch him sing Ave Maria awesome!

Beautifully sung by the young maestro

This song is a perfect foil to showcase the versatility of his beautiful voice!

Such passion in his dynamic voice

15 Time to Say Goodbye

Although I've only heard a YouTube version recorded when he was 16, It moves me deeply every time. I hope he will record a studio version soon.

I adore Jonathans version of this beautiful song, he brings all of the emotions out when he sings, xx

17 Canto Della Terra

Unbelievable, I flew to Eng and heard this live in 2013. I'll never forget that moment! Incredible! His voice is profound!

Jonathan's voice on this song is spectacular.. It stood out o the first album for me. I can't wait for his solo album so we can hear what he can really do. Go Jon!

Love this song from the CD "Perhaps Love". I had never heard it, although I had heard of it. Now I can't hear anyone else sing it.

Who is not haunted by the stunning beautiful sounds of love, passion & heartbreak along with such a manly presence to grab your heart. A remarkably powerful rendition like no other can do. Bravo on "The Godfather Love Theme"!

When I hear this piece of music it crawls into my soul & stays there. My son doesn't like this type of music, but when this one comes on its turn it up mom!

No one sings it like Jonathan Antoine!
