Yanni Assists Flood Relief in Thailand
Yanni has been so moved by the hardship facing the Thai people due to the flooding, he has taken it upon himself to assist with relief efforts. Yanni informed BEC-Tero Entertainment Managing Director, Mr. Brian L. Marcar that he wanted to give something back to the people of Thailand before continuing with his tour to Singapore.
Yanni said, “After Brian told me about the amount of suffering from the flooding, I couldn’t stand still. I discussed with him ways that I could help the country I love and the people, who are like my friends, like my family members. The reception at last night’s concert was amazing and I wanted to try to give something back to the Thai people. Today is a great opportunity to do something. I have been touched by the great unity and generosity of the Thai people during this difficult period. I hope that the pain, both physical and mental, will fade away as soon as possible and I would like to urge the people of Thailand to stay strong.”
