PAVAROTTI & FRIENDS
On June 1, 1999 the annual Pavarotti & Friends concert took place in the Parco Novi Sad in Modena. Like always, the proceeds of this concert went to the War Child Foundation. This year the children from Guatemala en Kosovo would benefit. Mariah was one of the many guests. She sang "My all" solo and "Hero" in a duet with Luciano Pavarotti. All artists joined the stage in the finale for the song "We are the world". An album was released on September 21, 1999.
In an official statement touting the release of the CD, Mariah said that she was pleased to take part in the event. "Pavarotti's a legend. His voice is one of the most incredible ever, so I was honored when he asked me to perform with him. Music has a universal voice and, as there are so many people in need, particularly now, it's an important time for artists to get together, not only to raise money but also awareness for great causes."
War Child is a charity that raises funds to help children whose lives have been affected by war.
