Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli
will reportedly perform at Tom Cruise
and Katie Holmes'
wedding next weekend. The blind opera star has confirmed to friends he will attend and sing at the event, reportedly due to take place at the Castello Odescalchi in Bracciano, near Rome.
A friend of Bocelli says, "They asked him to sing because Katie particularly likes 'Ave Maria.' It will give the ceremony a Catholic religious element, which is important to her."
Scientologist Cruise and Catholic Holmes have kept tight-lipped about their wedding plans, confirming only the big day will take place in Italy next weekend.
