- #SDG16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions - 06 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "I do everything with foot: write, comb my hair, shave, a lot of things. I am from the state of Espírito Santo, but I came to sing in Rio de Janeiro. I sang with a friend who was keyboardist, but now I'm alone. When I asked the heavens that I could work without the need of human matter - and now I sing with my stereo. All I need is it, my microphone, an USB stick and a battery of 12 Volts. I've sung in Tijuca, Largo do Machado, Centro, Caxias, in many places! I can control the sound with my foot and make people happy. Music brings me happiness because it makes me feel useful to people: once, a man approached to myself and said that he left home thinking about committing suicide, but when he saw me singing, that changed his mind and he could realize that he should have hope in life. I think, through music, people change the way of thinking." – Rogerio Rocha, 58 years old ---- #ODS16: Paz, Justiça e Instituições Eficazes - Contagem regressiva para Rio 06 dias! "Faço tudo com o pé: escrevo, penteio o cabelo, faço a barba, um monte de coisas. Sou do Espírito Santo, mas vim cantar no Rio de Janeiro. Eu cantava com um amigo, que era tecladista, mas agora estou sozinho. Sempre pedi aos céus que pudesse trabalhar sem depender da matéria humana – e agora canto com meu aparelho de som. Tudo o que eu preciso é dele, do meu microfone, de um pendrive e de uma bateria 12 Volts. Já cantei na Tijuca, Largo do Machado, Centro, Caxias, em muitos lugares! Vou controlando o som com o pé e fazendo o povo feliz. A música me traz felicidade porque me faz sentir útil para as pessoas: uma vez, um homem se aproximou de mim e falou que saiu de casa pensando em cometer suicídio, mas, quando me viu cantando, mudou de idéia e percebeu que deveria ter esperança na vida. Acho que, através da música, as pessoas mudam a maneira de pensar." – Rogério Rocha, 58 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #musica United Nations Development Programme - UNDP PNUD Brasil UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo - PNUD SDG Action Campaign about an hour ago
