Duizend scherven

Wat als een idool valt? Marco Borsato heeft zo’n 25 miljoen euro verloren bij het faillissement van zijn bedrijf The Entertainment Group en ging zelf bijna failliet. Een jaar na het faillissement komt hij terug met een nieuwe cd: Dromen durven delen. Door de ‘merkbekendheid’ van de naam Borsato en de loyale steun van zijn fans wordt deze cd een een groot succes. Inmiddels is de plaat triple platina en komen er 8 concerten.
