Katharine McPhee and Andrea Bocelli perform Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling In Love at Hollywood Bowl

Katharine McPhee is currently out on the road as the special guest with world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli.

Ahead of the weekend, the tour rolled into Los Angeles for a show at the iconic Hollywood Bowl, where the two performed a stunning duet of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love.

The next evening, McPhee’s husband, legendary composer David Foster, joined the duo on the piano to perform another rendition of Presley’s classic romance tune.

The crowd roared with approval when McPhee came onto the Hollywood Bowl stage Thursday night, June 16, decked out in a black gown, which hugged her upper body and transitioned into a classic bell-shape.

The full-length number also included puffy off-the-shoulder sleeves that fell just past her elbows.

With her lightened locks styled long and flowing, the singer and actress traded lines with Bocelli for what can only be deemed as a beautiful rendition of Can’t Help Falling In Love, with the help of a full orchestra behind them.

Bocelli, 63, an operatic tenor and multi-instrumentalist, showed off his vocal skills dressed in a black-patterned, three-piece suit with a white shirt and black bow tie.
