Bocelli has recorded fifteen solo studio albums, of both pop and classical music, three greatest hits albums, and nine complete operas, selling over 80 million records worldwide. He has had success as a crossover performer bringing classical music to the top of international pop charts.

Seven of his albums have since reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200, and a record-setting ten have topped the classical crossover albums charts in the United States.

With five million units sold worldwide, Sacred Arias became the biggest-selling classical crossover album by a solo artist of all time, and with over twenty million copies sold worldwide, his 1997 pop album Romanza became the best-selling album by an Italian artist of any genre in history, as well as the best-selling album by a foreign artist in Canada and a number of countries in Europe and Latin America.The album’s first single, “Time to Say Goodbye”, was a duet with Sarah Brightman that topped charts across Europe, including Germany, where it stayed at the top of the charts for fourteen consecutive weeks, breaking the all-time sales record, with over three million copies sold in the country.

About the Award

In 2012, CGI partnered with Donna Karan to design the Clinton Global Citizen Award. The collaboration was inspired by Karan’s design aesthetic and her efforts in Haiti to bring artisan products to a global market. Karan reached out to her longtime friends Nadia Swarovski of Swarovski Crystal and Cookie Villiard, a Haitian metal artist, to work together to create an award emblematic of CGI and its mission. The handcrafted design is an illustration of the magic that happens when individual voices come together to take positive action.

Final Clinton Global Initiative Meeting NYC -2016

Former president Bill Clinton closed a major chapter of his post-presidential life on Wednesday, marking the end of his foundation’s glitzy, three-day philanthropic confab that had become a hallmark of its work.

CGI, which was founded in 2005, had become the networking event of choice for corporations, nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and wealthy philanthropists.

“This may be the last annual meeting, but the work and the spirit of President Clinton’s vision and the CGI committed community will live on forever.” Said Many People who were in attendance.

Nevertheless, Clinton launched into a forceful defense of the partnership “model” of philanthropy founded by CGI that he said would be its enduring legacy, in addition to the more than 430 million people counted as beneficiaries of philanthropy that started at CGI over the years.

Clinton did not directly address his critics, but he gave an overall defense of the motivations behind the foundation in the face of accusations by their political adversaries that the foundation served as a source of financial enrichment for the Clintons. CGI, Clinton said, is about “building a culture of possibility” that can be deployed to solve the world’s most difficult and pressing problems.

 

And despite beginning the week with the suggestion that in its final day CGI would not become a “nostalgia trip,” Bill Clinton did just that. He listed off country after country and initiative after initiative that he had participated in and visited in his post-presidential years, starting the stories with the words “I remember.”

After a few minutes he warned the crowd that “just a couple more” were coming before he was finished.

When he walked off the stage many minutes later, he was greeted with an extended standing ovation.

We at World Liberty TV, Have Covered the Clinton Global Initiative’s for the past 8 years, and the kind of people President Clinton has helped throughout the World, through all regions of the World, with Medicine, Housing , Education, building of Haiti, is an honorable act of Humanity, and we heard testimonies, from World Leaders, and people helped by the Clinton Global Initiative’s, over and over again, in the past 8 years.

I want to finish of with this,  President Clinton is one of the greatest  Humanitarians, of our Era, we honor him and respect him ,for all he has done for Humanity, Thank you President Clinton for giving us the opportunity, to showcase your Humanitarian work on our World Liberty TV, Humanitarian Channel, you will always be our “Humanitarian Champion”. God Bless you!.
