3 rd Annual Gala of The Little Dreams Foundation : 'Dreaming on The Beach' Hosted by Orianne & Phil Collins Perfomances by : Laura Pausini , WYK, The Little Dreamers Artists and many others In Favor of The Little Dreams Foundation.
By 2004, roughly a decade after her recording debut, Laura Pausini had sold over 25 million albums worldwide. Her singing didn't really take off until 1993, when she made her self-titled debut and scored a big hit with "La Solitudine." Laura (1995), Le Cose Che Vivi/Las Cosas Que Vives (1996), La Mia Risposta/Mi Respuesta (1998), and Tra Te e il Mare/Entre Tu y Mil Mares (2000) each found mass success in their respective markets. Her English-language crossover album, From the Inside (2002), essentially struck out with consumers and she didn't return until 2004's Resta in Ascolto/Escucha, which returned her to the top of the charts. Each subsequent recording has placed in the Latin and Italian top tens. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
