MIRACLES DO HAPPEN PLAYING ON THE STREET!
Yes, that’s right! miracles do happen playing on the street.
It’s the 8 of October 2011 and I am in Livorno, my home town in Tuscany. A few months before I was in London where I stayed for four months. I had met a girl with whom I was having a love affair.
That day I decided to go and perform on Ricasoli Street.
It’s half past three in the afternoon and I’ve got an airplane that will bring me back to London to meet that girl. I’m in the middle of playing my song “I Wish I Was With You Tonight“. A guy with his son buys one of my cd’s and till there nothing new.
As soon as I arrive in London, I go to see the girl and things just aren’t going as I wished. The day after I receive an email from that guy. He was telling me how much he liked my music and asking why I was playing on the street with the talent I had. Not sure about what I answered but he said that he wanted to meet me as soon as I got back to Livorno.
THE MEETING IS IN PIAZZA COVOUR.
We talk for a bit and I tell him that I have wrote so many new songs and I couldn’t wait to go in studio. The only problem was that I didn’t have the money. He looks at me and he says “Listen! I was lucky that I was born in a wealthy family and I don’t have money problems. I want to help you because I love what you do and I just want to support you”!
What would have you thought in my place? I was astonished.
At the time I was recording with a friend of mine and I decided to record the album in his studio.
I COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME.
It was unbelievable because my third album came to birth thanks to Francesco Lorenzini. An amazing guy that gave me 12000 Euro to record my album without even knowing me. Was it a miracle? yes it was and he is just an amazing human being.
