Pope Francis responds to Andrea Bocelli's compliment: "Thank you. I'm a normal person"
At the end of the General Audience, the pope asked himself this question:
"I heard a voice ... but who was singing?"
It was nothing less than Andrea Bocelli in Paul VI Audience Hall, accompanied by a very special group. The singer was very excited when he greeted Pope Francis.
"You have something inside with the power to move others. I don't know. I don't know if you know it."
"Thank you. I am normal."
The singer visited Pope Francis along with a group of Haitian children. The Andrea Bocelli Foundation participates in "Voices of Haiti," a project so Haitian children with musical talent can learn to develop it. The initiative aims to give the most disadvantaged children an opportunity, either through schooling or by guaranteeing them adequate food.
