Remembering Luciano Pavarotti

Pavarotti & Stevie Wonder
On October 12, 1935 Luciano Pavarotti born in Modena (Italy), one of the most famous contemporary singers. Its dramatic tenor conditions, not only allowed him to succeed in the world of opera, she appeared opposite Plácido Domingo and Jose Carreras in The Three Tenors group, their forays into pop style songs and above all his concerts in aid to the others, have made him one of the most beloved singers in the world. Since 1994, Pavarotti organized under the name of Luciano Pavarotti & Friends, these concerts annually to raise funds in aid of children and men around the world.

From 1994, Pavarotti organized under the name of Luciano Pavarotti & Friends, these concerts annually to raise funds to help children and men around the world. In these concerts were involved artists like Queen, U2, Bon Jovi, Deniece Williams, Zucchero or Natalie Cole among others .
Especially for one of those events that he celebrated to raise funds, specifically for the one celebrated in the year 1998 in Modena in aid to the children of Liberia, Stevie Wonder composed the song "Peace Wanted Just To Be Free".

A beautiful ballad as a duet performed in two languages, along with that other great teacher of music always will be Luciano Pavarotti. A great man in all senses, whose disappearance by pancreatic cancer on September 6, 2007, was a blow to the good of humanity.
Peace Wanted Just To Be Free

Sweet woman child needn't cry anymore
Now we all know what you've long known before
Sad that it took all one's lifetime to see
Peace wanted just to be free
Strong man shall open your armor of fear
Your dreams of love is what brought this day here
Evil is lost and hate has decease, joy is of what we feast
For life can now live in world peace
dormi piccino la guerra e finita
l'acqua ed il vento saranno con te
e poi cresci piccino nell' Africa unita
dormi che noi siamo qui
dormi noi siamo con te
ritorneranno le danze e i colori
contiueranno per sempre con te
ritroveremo profumi e i sapori
piccolo amore
per ogni stella che cade nel cielo
un nuovo amore fiorisce laggiu
bimbi che corrono e giocano i pace
e che non piangono piu
e che non piangono piu
Sweet woman child needn't cry anymore
Now we all know what you've long known before
Sad that it took a world's lifetime to see
Peace wanted just to be free, peace wanted just to be free
Soldiers have put down their weapons of war
Never to touch them again
All through the love you can hear people say
Where fighting has come to an end
dormi piccino dell' Africa nuova
armi e i soldati non urlano piu
sogna la notte di luci stellate
dormi noi siamo con te
dormi che noi siamo qui
dormi noi siamo con te
