VATICAN CITY (AP) - November 28, 2008 The world famous tenor says the album "Amore Infinito" ("Infinite Love") will not just speak to the faithful. He says "these are songs for everyone."

The 12-track record was presented Friday at the Vatican.

The CD features duets with Andrea Bocelli, Vanessa Williams and Katherine Jenkins. The lyrics are in Italian, English and Spanish.

The Deutsche Grammophon record label says the CD will come out next month in Mexico, where Domingo grew up, and worldwide in January.

John Paul published poems, plays and philosophical essays before he became pope. He died in 2005.
