Carly Paoli enchants studio audience and TV viewers in Italy with three performances


‘I was fascinated and told her I had a dream of a concert for the Jubilee Year of Mercy that would take place in the Roman Forum. There, she would sing, ‘Ave Maria.’

That concert took place in July and proceeds from ‘Ave Maria,’ will go to ‘Casa Betania.’ This is a cause close to the Monsignor’s heart and Carly paid a visit later on in the day to see the valuable work that they do.

‘Se tu fossi,’ Ennio Morricone’s haunting music from the film, ‘Cinema Paradiso,’ reminded the audience that Carly will be performing in Italy on December 26th. This will be in a concert devoted to Italian film music called ‘La Dolce Vita.’ RAI TV will also be filming the concert.

Carly ended the programme with ‘My Christmas Dream is You,’her new release where all the proceeds will be given to ‘When You Wish Upon a Star,’ so that they can continue to grant wishes for children with life threatening illnesses.

A visibly moved Lucia Ascione said, ‘Today is the feast of Santa Lucia. She brings presents for all the babies. Today, Carly, you have been the most beautiful present given to all of us. Thank you for our Christmas gift.’
