On April 24, 2009, in Milan, fithy-six Italian singers, “Artisti per l’Abruzzo,” got together to record a song in memory of the 309 victims of the earthquake that on April 6, 2009 devastated L’Aquila, the capitol of the region in Abruzzo, in central Italy. All the proceeds, 1 million euros, went to the reconstruction of the theater and conservatory in L’Aquila. Above is the music video of the song "Domani 21/04/2009". Can you recognize any of the singers in the video?
