Four good-looking guys in a GQ sort of way, each from a different country, opera singers performing pop — you can just imagine how Simon Cowell came up with the crossover formula for Il Divo. And it worked, if worldwide album sales of more than 22 million are any measure. The group's latest CD, The Promise, features Euro-pop covers of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's The Power of Love, Abba's Winner Takes It All, Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and Charles Aznavour's She.
The foursome, which includes American tenor David Miller, Spanish baritone Carlos Marin, Swiss tenor Urs Buhler and French tenor Sebastien Izambard, performs at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg. $58.70-$128.70.
