We act as if everyone's everyday life is approaching: the balconies of resistance, the management of children, the pressure of the media or even the absence of contact with those close to them. All these themes which are both disturbing in their crisis situation but also reassuring in the fine proofs of solidarity they evoke. Calogero does not forget to hope by evoking France after, happier than in these troubled times.

The particularity of this new title is based on its economic model. All proceeds will be donated to the Hôpital de Paris - Hôpitaux de France foundation. The title, available from today on all download and streaming platforms, is above all a call for donations to healthcare staff.
In France, hospitals and care centers have faced a shortage of human, material and financial resources for several months, even years, and the epidemic has added to the difficulties encountered by nursing staff. We act as if there is therefore an opportunity for the French to help the men and women who work day and night during this unprecedented health crisis. This initiative is part of a collective tendency of musical artists like Roméo Elvis to support with songs, but also donations, the nursing staff.
