Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker


"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Michael Leonardi - "Rinascerai "

Ma chi è questo ragazzo con un accento straniero ? Michael Vaiasinni aka Michael Leonardi (his mom’s maiden name) was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1990 to Sicilian parents. He started his career as a tenor when he was merely 15 years old, making his début as one of the main characters in the musical "Les Misérables " while studying at Sydney’s National Institute of Dramatic Art. He then completed his musical education by studying singing at Sydney’s AMusA and honing his craft with well-known artists such as Glenn Wynslade, Norma Fantini and Rockwell Blake. In 2008 he graduated from Sydney’s prestigious "Talent Development Project". He performed in a number of operatic productions, including G Bizet’s "Carmen" at the prestigious Sydney Theatre (2007), J Heggie’s "Dead man walking" at the State Theatre (2008), and V Bellini’s "La Sonnambula " at the Pacific Opera (2009). His concert activity has been equally intense. He sang at the presence of Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of the World Youth Day held in Sydney in 2008. In 2010 he took part as a guest artist to the Festival Internazionale Giuseppe Verdi in Parma, Italy. That same year he performed in Modena, during a memorial concert in honor of the late Luciano Pavarotti, at the presence of the maestro’s family. Most recently he made an extremely successful appearance on Melbourne’s prestigious "Carols by Candlelight" concert, watched by no less than four million people. And he will début next week at the 66th Sanremo Music Festival with his first original song entitled "Rinascerai " ('You shall be born again'), a message for women to hope and overcome every difficulty he wrote a year ago, taking inspiration from the experience of a dear friend of his who was going through a very hard time in her life. "I wanted her to feel encouraged, to come out of the dark and go back to living in the sunlight", he explained. A first studio album is in the making too. But in the meanwhile, watch him donning Emporio Armani in his first video !

Francesco Gabbani - "Amen"

Born in Carrara in Tuscany to the family who owns the only musical instruments shop in town, Francesco Gabbani, 33, started playing drums at 4, guitar at 9, and spent his teenage years in an emotional vortex causing him to realize that music was his raison d'être. Which drove him to sign his first record deal when he turned 18 with his then band Trikobalto. After the success of their first album, they released a second one in 2010, then he launched his solo career with a new record deal. He finally released his first album, "Greitist iz", in 2013. And he will début next week at the 66th Sanremo Music Festival with his new song entitled "Amen" co-written with Fabio Ilacqua. Behind the melodic freshness of the track lies in fact a sarcastic intention of requesting some reflection on the way we live nowadays. In a nutshell, God helps only those who help themselves, so don't wait for a miracle, only you can change what you dislike. The author is convinced that with sacrifice and dedication then changing our attitude towards the reality we live in, we can achieve great goals. Sounds laudable. It's also the first taste of his upcoming album "Eternamente ora " ('Eternally now'), consisting of eight previously unreleased tracks, and due out February 12 with BMG Italia. Sanremo will definitely mark a turning point in his career. But no worries, the song is fantastic !
