Nice, On December 19, 2016 : Umberto Tozzi along side the association “Les Anges Gardiens de Monaco” went around the streets of Nice at nightfall to offer food and essential goods to the most disinherited people of Nice.
A Hearted Tour , in a way, for the mythical singer who, 40 years after the success of “Ti amo” “Gloria”, and 80 million records sold all over the world, will start his 40th anniversary tour on April 14, 2017 at Teatro dal Verme in Milan .
Discreet in his generosity, Umberto Tozzi supports several charities. He also directed a Franco-Italian version of Petite Marie, sung in duet with Francis Cabrel in 2012, for the benefit of the Larchet hospital in Nice.
“The homeless and those who come to fetch food from the streets are the weakest and most destitute because they often do not even have a roof to shelter them. How else can they explain that they come looking for in the cold and at night a bowl of hot soup that they eat standing on the sidewalk or sitting on the floor in the cold and sometimes rainy night … people who seek food in the premises of “Resto du Coeur “And other charities, often have a roof, a place where they can cook. Street people no longer have anything left, and most of the time are completely excluded from welfare networks. That’s why we must go marauding, go to meet them at random, “explains Bruna Maule, Founding President of the Angels Guardians of Monaco.
For several decades, singers have been involved in humanitarian work. This began in 1984 with Bob Geldof’s band Aid which raised $ 70 million for famine victims in Ethiopia. The following year, 45 stars including Mariah Carey, Pavarotti, Gloria Estefan, Laura Pausini …who came together to sing “We are the world”, the tube co written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, which raised $ 63 million .
“ Singing is good,” explains Umberto Tozzi, “especially if it can help the associations Monaco Guardian Angels to raise funds so that it can continue to feed, dress and house those unfortunates who found themselves in the street. That is why I decided to offer my entire performance for the Gala 10 years of the Guardian Angels of Monaco on February 17, 2017 “.
But the presence of Umberto Tozzi here tonight with the Guardian Angels of Monaco, in the cold and icy rained winter night , is the expression of a strong desire to share ,redistribute his happiness,and Humble oneself to serve those poor among the poorest . “Give them respect, consideration, honor to these people abandoned by life, spending simple,warm,quality Time with them, watching the smile on their face. A wonderful gift! “.
