The official World Cup theme song is out, sung by Il Divo featuring Toni Braxton, aptly titled 'The Time of our Lives'. Its a haunting anthemic tune featuring the powerful vocals of Braxton with the tenor accompaniment of the internationally acclaimed quartet, Il Divo. Il Divo is the brainchild of Simon Cowell of the American Idol fame. When Cowell worked with Andrea Bocelli, he found a niche for pop-classical genre and set out to create a quartet of tenors who can also penetrate the lucrative pop industry. And Il Divo was born and signed to BMG under the creative direction of Cowell. Il Divo debutted their critically-acclaimed self titled album with over 5 million copies without a single release, beating Led Zep's 25 year old record. In this FIFA World Cup project, Il Divo hv teamed up beautifully with Toni Braxton to produce this inspiring piece fit for a world showcase event as the World Cup. Personally, I would hv liked Bocelli to sing it but Il Divo did well to complement Braxton and being Europe's high profile quartet at the moment, it was fitting as well. So, featured below, the FIFA World Cup 2006 brings you the passion and experience of 'The Time of our Lives'. Enjoy...

Yeah gina, the song featured for the Opening is 'Celebrate the Day', also on the Voices frm FIFA World Cup 2006 CD. 'The Time of our Lives' is the official song for the entire tournament and I'm sure it will be sung to close this football extravaganza on July 9. Be sure to catch it then. Enjoy the tournament.

I did missed the beginning part of the Opening ceremony so I too didnt catch Il Divo with Toni Braxton. But apparently, the Star today did report that they indeed sang the song. Anyone else can confirm? If it wasnt shown, could it be that the adverts had snipped it off?
