This goes back to 1995, when Luciano Pavarotti was holding a series of benefit concerts. Between 1992 and 2003 Pavarotti hosted 10 concerts at Parco Novi Sad in Modena, Italy. Known as Pavarotti & Friends, These events were in support of humanitarian causes. Pavarotti invited mostly non-opera singers to sing with him, which resulted in a very innovative and well received collaboration between Pavarotti and popular popstars. According to Wikipedia, Pavarotti donated the proceeds from some of these concerts to Afghan, Angolan and Iraqi refugees. In 1995, the concert was for the children of Bosnia affected by the war. The event featured artists such as U2 and Meat Loaf and was attended by Diana, Princess of Wales. Proceeds from this concert were used to help build the Pavarotti Music Center in Mostar. Even though it's a pretty poor quality video, it gave me chills!
