International recording artist Anggun has been chosen –along with legendary sports champion Carl Lewis and internationally renowned designer Pierre Cardin- by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations as their Goodwill Ambassador. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
As a Goodwill Ambassador, Anggun will participate in a global effort to offer support to the hungry and impoverished worldwide. This is not the first time the United Nations have asked Anggun to promote key programs. In 2005, Anggun was a spokesperson for the ‘Year of Microcredit’ and helped to create general public awareness to help those who are in needs.
Indonesian singer Anggun is the best-selling Asian recording artist ever outside the Eastern-Asia region. No other Asian-born artist has ever sold as many albums. Her worldwide critically-acclaimed hit ‘Snow On The Sahara’ has reached #1 in more than 15 countries worldwide (including Italy). She has sold millions of records across the globe (and achieved multi-platinum status in Italy), and has won many international prizes and awards, making her a truly “borders breaker” artist. Along her career, Anggun has performed with international stars such as Peter Gabriel, Pras from The Fugees, Michael Bolton, Julio Iglesias, Zucchero, Piero Pelu, to name but a few. In 2010, Anggun will start a promising acting career in a film directed by famous Oscar winner Claude Lelouch. Anggun’s current album ‘Elevation’ is a success in numerous countries across the Globe.
On her role as a Goodwill Ambassador, Anggun says that “everyone can count on my continued, tireless support to FAO/United Nations’ activities and worldwide campaign against hunger, to enable those living on the verge of famine to use their own two hands to resolve the problem of hunger at the roots”.
Anggun will be in Roma, Italy on Oct. 16th at the Rome International Film Festival in support of the “TeleFood Campaign Against Hunger In The World”. Anggun will be honored to pronounce a speech during the event.
