|Andrea Bocelli sings Easter hymns to a stunned crowd.|
So when he crashed Easter Mass at Miami Beach's St. Patrick Catholic Church yesterday and shook the stained glass with some hymns, the faithful went a little bananas.
Parishioners at St. Patrick's apparently had no advance warning that Bocelli would be part of the services. When they lined up for communion, the blind tenor walked to the pulpit and started singing:

Update: That was indeed Bocelli. Mary Ross Agosta, a spokeswoman for the diocese, tells Riptide that "Bocelli attended mass and asked if he could sing the communion song. Panis Angelicus is what he sang."
