LATEST “Don’t leave my hands” the Christmas song for Unicef

Music news

ULTIMO has chosen to donate the copyright of Don’t leave my hands, a Christmas themed song.

The song features children as protagonists, an invitation to never stop surprising yourself and believing in dreams, looking for a bit of yourself in others and remaining enchanted by simple things, like the snow that suddenly falls.

Don’t leave my hands, text and music by Ultimo, who leaves the interpretation to the angelic voices of the choir of the Cluster music school, which he directed and also protagonists of the video clip.

The royalties relating to the song will be donated to Unicef ​​and intended for children in emergencies with particular attention to those in conflicts.


Ultimo’s activities in support of UNICEF and less fortunate children around the world represent a fundamental part of the life and mission of the Roman singer-songwriter, who with his lyrics and his music manages to speak to the hearts of millions of people, especially of the youngest, with great sensitivity and passionate commitment.

The partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund began in 2019, when Ultimo received the nomination of Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF Italy on the occasion of a meeting with the children of the elementary school of the “Gandhi” Comprehensive Institute, in the Roman district of San Basilio. In February 2020, after donating part of the proceeds from his stadium tour for development projects in the country, the singer-songwriter carried out his first field mission alongside Unicef ​​in Mali and in December of the same year he met a representation of Italian and foreign women with their children, bringing with them a special Christmas gift: a parchment with the lyrics of the song “7+3”, dedicated to mothers who live in vulnerable conditions and who continue to fight for the future of their children children.

In April 2021, Ultimo renews its commitment to Unicef ​​projects in Mali with “Buongiorno vita – L’evento”, broadcast live from the Colosseum in Rome, its hometown. In April 2022 he meets and performs in front of Ukrainian children and families guests at the Fonte di Ismaele association in Rome. As a sign of closeness, he gives them his personalized handmade piano.

A commitment and a mission that represent a constant in Ultimo’s life and artistic journey which also closes this year in the name of gestures that leave their mark.

A few days after the release of the latest single OCCHI LUCIDI, presented for the first time live and exclusively in the courtyard of Foqus, the beating heart of the Quartieri Spagnoli of Naples, to which he offers a luminous installation for parties and a painting to he painted, demonstrates once again all the closeness to the people of the “last”, donating the copyright of the song Don’t leave my hands to Unicef, thus writing a new original page of his message of solidarity.


And Niccolò’s people, the universal one, who come from the “land of the Last”, continue to repay him with great affection and participation, allowing him to already celebrate three sold out events, in the cities of Rome, Naples and Turin for the great concerts that await him in stadiums from next June 2024.
