Phil Collins is one of the most influential rock singers of all time who described himself, ‘I’m not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I’m a drummer that sings a bit.’ The highly successful ’Another Day in Paradise’ (1989) singer also noted, ’I just don’t think of myself as a star. This is what I do for a living; I’m fortunate that I make ends meet.’

He is known for being a patron of several philanthropic causes. These include South Africa’s The Topsy Foundation, which aids their destitute rural communities that are greatly affected by HIV, AIDS, and extreme poverty; The Little Dreams Foundation, which is focused on realizing ‘the dreams of children in the fields of sports and art’; and UK’s Children in Hunger, where they are aimed at striving against child poverty in Brazil.
