    Need your help with a "title"!

    Hi FSUers! As many of you know, I'm a professional musician and a manager of classical/opera singers.

    I have a duo (female and male) team that has formed a crossover act, in the manner of Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli, singing "Time to Say Goodbye," "The Prayer," etc., along with some opera. I had a similar act in the past (but with more than two singers), called "Dazzling Divas & Divos."

    I've been wracking my brain to come up with a catchy "title" for this duo, but my creative forces are failing me. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks either way!

    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    This may be a stupid question, but are they singing the songs in a romantic way, to each other, or just as a duet?

    Well, some are romantic songs, but they're not a couple. So I guess I'd say just as a duet.

    If most of the songs are associated with Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion, maybe you could play with their initials, ABCD. If not, I like using the word "two" instead of "duet" -- Two Voices, Etc. I will keep thinking....

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! (They don't necessarily sing Celine/Andrea Bocelli, just that type of crossover stuff.)

    Romantica (even if they aren't a couple, or a couple act, it sounds like the songs are that sort of romantic ballad crossover music)

    Dulce (because some of what they sing is sweet Italian music)

    Yup, smth like that. Fun to play that game
    Duo Romantico? Dolce Duetto? The Balladiers? Duetto con Amore? The Romantics
    Also maybe smth. with "Voices".
    Good luck, please tell us what you come up with.
