“Another Day in Paradise” was written and almost completely recorded by Phil Collins. He wrote the song after encountering a woman and her children outside the recording studio and reflecting on his reaction to her. Phil Collins himself said that the exchange mostly just made him uncomfortable: “I felt awkward. I didn’t ignore her, but at the same time, I didn’t stop and give her some money.” Since then “Another Day in Paradise” has been a vessel to raise global awareness about homelessness.
The Phil Collins Experience is proud to carry on the torch in every city on our tours. In each city we select a homeless program to feature, letting concert goers know about the program and how they can help. Additionally, 100% of the proceeds from our merchandise sales goes directly to the featured charity in each city.
