En nuestro último Abba, lugares relacionados, dijimos que las fotos publicadas cumplirán 30 años en unos días. Lo que ofrecemos hoy, cumplió ya 30 años el pasado enero. Se trata de la Gala de Unicef 1979 "A GIFT OF SONG" ("El regalo de una canción"). Un evento organizado por David Frost, Robert Stigwood y los Bee Gees para conmemorar el Año Internacional de la Infancia 1979. Se invitaron a artistas para que donasen canciones cuyos royalties serían cedidos a perpetuidad a beneficio de UNICEF. La gala concierto se celebró el 9 de enero de 1979 en la Sala de la Asemblea General en el edificio de las Naciones Unidas de Nueva York, la primera vez que se celebraba un concierto musical en este lugar. Los artistas reunidos allí fueron: Bee Gees, Abba, John Denver, Olivia Newton-John, Andy Gibb, Earth-Wind-&-Fire, Kris Kristofferson, Rod Stewart y Donna Summer. Elton John iba a actuar pero causó baja unos días antes.
El concierto su abrió con un popurri de temas que acabó con todos los artistas cantando el "HE IS YOUR BROTHER" ("Es tu hermano") de Abba. Y finalizaron la gala con todos cantando "PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART ("Pon un poco de amor en tu corazón") de Jackie de Shannon. El concierto se filmó y pasó por la NBC americana la noche siguiente como el gran evento musical del año, y en los siguientes meses se transmitió en TVs de todo el mundo. Nunca se ha comercializado en video o DVD.
Como es sabido, Abba cedió los derechos de "CHIQUITITA" que estrenaron en la gala, y se dice que es la canción que más ha recaudado para la causa (más de $2 millones).
Incluimos videos de la gala.
On our last Abba, related places, we explained that the photos we published will be 30 years old in a few days. What we offer today has already become 30 years old last January. It's the 1979 Unicef Gala "A GIFT OF SONG". An event organized by David Frost, Robert Stigwood & the Bee Gees to commemorate the United Nations' International Year of the Child in 1979. Artists were invited to donate songs whose royalties would be given away in perpetuity to benefit UNICEF. The concert gala was held on January, 9th, 1979 in the General Assembly Hall in the United Nations building in New York, the first time a popular music concert had been held in the venue. The artists who gathered there were: Bee Gees, Abba, John Denver, Olivia Newton-John, Andy Gibb, Earth-Wind-&-Fire, Kris Kristofferson, Rod Stewart & Donna Summer. Elton John was to perform, but pulled out days before the concert.
The concert opened with a medley of songs which finished with all artists singing along to Abba's "HE IS YOUR BROTHER". They ended the gala with all artists singing Jackie de Shannon's "PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART". The concert was filmed & shown on American NBC the following night as the TV special of the year and broadcasted on TVs worldwide in the following months. It has never been comercialized on video or DVD, though.
As you know, Abba donated the rights to "CHIQUITITA" ("Litte girl"), which they premièred in the gala,
and it's considered to be the song which has earned the most for the cause (over $2 million).
We include videos of the gala.
