“Musical artiste singer David Archuleta and pianist Paul Cardall performed Friday, May 13, in the Slovenian Opera Theatre for the Slovenian Heart Foundation’s sold-out 25th anniversary charity concert celebration”
David Archuleta performing in a humanitarian concert in the Balkan country of Slovenia is, I think, one of his ways of “giving back” for the “good place he is at” these past years. He does not want to see himself as just a rock star whose only purpose is to sell records.
Like Bono of U2 helping the less fortunate as a philanthropist and Audrey Hepburn turning into a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador later in life, celebrities of the entertainment world have been contributing their time and energy to doing humanitarian work.
On the personal level, I believe it is about “getting over oneself”, which, I think, is one of the best things that can happen to one who is celebrated by the world.
Mahatma Gandhi says: “Whatever you do as a humanitarian may seem insignificant but it is very important that you do it”
It is a mental process to change the world – our psychological aspect will evolve from silence, ignorance and apathy to a universal language of heart.
The power of human empathy through music cannot be under-estimated … to draw attention to causes which need collective support and collective action … to save lives or to make lives better … to make a difference to people of equal worth and dignity … and especially children who are suffering from ailments through no fault of their own.
David’s participation in this concert to support help for the children with congenital heart problems is his message of inspiration to the world.
Yes, much of the world needs to be awakened and changed.
Yes, David – one song … and one concert … at a time. 🙂
Even if it is just playing a baby bongo sometimes. 😀
