2021: A year for revival

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada is proud to launch the French adaptation of Rinascerò, rinascerai, composed by Roby Facchinetti and written by Stefano D'Orazio, who sadly passed away from COVID-19. Singer Daniela Fiorentino, an Italian from Naples and a Montrealer by adoption, has adapted the song into French for Quebec audiences, Je renaîtrai, tu renaîtras.

In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic brought the whole world to its knees, especially in Italy. Roby and Stefano have graciously decided to donate all proceeds from the diffusion of Rinascerò, rinascerai to the Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, a city severely hit by the pandemic. On this side of the world, all the profits from the diffusion of the French adaptation will go to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada.

Composed in tears but brought to life with strength and resilience during quarantine, Rinascerò, rinascerai received over 15 million views in just a few days. Around the world, artists are translating the song into their own languages for the benefit of foundations in their respective countries.

Here is Je renaîtrai, tu renaîtras, with arrangements by composer Enzo Campagnoli. Artistic director, Alessandro Mercurio, directed the video. This song demonstrates a musical act of solidarity between Italy and Canada, a simple way to do some good in spite of COVID.
