WYD: people far apart but united for a common purpose

The Sun will appear in concert at the World Youth Day Hallelujah Festival, the largest Catholic music festival in the world organized by Brazil’s Shalom Community

If there weren’t enough time to make a new world I would still believe, it is stronger than me.

In the lead-up to the concert we talked to the band’s lead singer, Francesco Lorenzi.

WYD in Krakow is fast approaching. The Sun will be playing at the Hallelujah Festival, of which Cecilia is an official partner. It’s another international performance for The Sun. Are you ready?

We are filled with joy. The invitation to the festival has been a real source of happiness for us, since we will be the main guests on Friday and will be able to play a full concert. WYD is very meaningful: it is a meeting between young people from all over the world, far apart but united for a common purpose. To be able to play in concert on this occasion is something both rare and unique. It’s different from all other concerts. We will also play before the papal Mass.

What new projects are you working on?

We have made a documentary film with TV2000 that will air during World Youth Day. The film tells the story of our experience in the Holy Land with the 200 people who lived with us. It will be about approximately 1.5 hours long, and there will be many beautiful testimonies.
