Andrea Bocelli is an Italian singer, songwriter and record producer who has sold over 80 million records worldwide. Born with poor eyesight, Bocelli became completely blind at the age of 12, following a football accident.

Established in 2005, the Andrea Bocelli foundation’s mission is to empower people and communities in situations of poverty. It has raised millions of dollars for programs around the world, including education and hospital projects in Haiti and homelessness initiatives in Italy.

"I strongly believe that love does justice. And it is for the simple reason that we are all responsible for building a better world." Said Andrea. "Since love energizes faith, the opposite must also be true. The amazing lives we have been gifted offer us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give the less fortunate a better future and opportunities."
