Andrea Bocelli's son Matteo Bocelli has absolutely blown us away with his official cover of Elton John's Lion King song, 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight'.

Even though it's a song we've heard countless times over the last 25 years, Matteo's beautiful rendition see him team up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; combining two of our great loves – Disney and classical music.

Speaking about his new single, the Italian singer said: "I am beyond excited to join this project with Disney. The Lion King is one of the most cherished movies from my childhood and to sing the lead song is truly an honour for me.

"Elton John is one of my musical heroes for both his songwriting skills and his unique style. I hope to take some of that influence into the music I'm currently working on which I hope to share with you soon."
