Chris Botti Aims For Tears
By Kim O’Brien Root
Chris Botti has performed with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Andrea Bocelli.
He’s blown his trumpet in the White House, and in 2004 his trademark, blond-tousled hair earned him recognition as one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People.
It’s a nice list of career accomplishments. But what Botti really wants is to make you cry.
“The best compliment people can give me is that they were somehow moved to tears, in a good way,” Botti says. “That’s what I strive for. To move people’s emotions.”
