Then in 2009, following the terrible earthquake which shook the central Italian town of L'Aquila on April 24th, Zucchero and other major Italian artists joined forces to record a single called "Domani 21-04-09" (Tomorrow 21-04-09), with all proceeds from the sale of this single going to the rebuilding and restoration of the "Alfredo Casella" Academy of Music and the Stabile Theatre of Abruzzo in L'Aquila.

At the VII Ischia Global Film & Music Fest Zucchero and Paul Haggis presented Sting with an award, and later on during the gala Zucchero gave a surprize performance with Sting and Andrea Bocelli. On the second day of the event it was Zucchero's turn to receive an award, presented to him by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler.

Zucchero was invited to the festivities for Nelson Mandela's 91st birthday and to take part in the "46664 Make An Imprint" concert held at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Other artists performing were Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Will.I.Am, Josh Groban, Carla Bruni, Dave Stewart, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, Angelique Kidjo, Whoopi Goldberg, Forest Whitaker, Morgan Freeman and many more. Zucchero, who was introduced to the audience as "the biggest rockstar in Italy," sang "You Are So Beautiful" and then joined the other stars to sing the chorus accompanying Stevie Wonder's rendition of "Happy Birthday."

A terrible disaster at Viareggio railway station in Tuscany (June 30th 2009) led Zucchero and promoter Mimmo d'Alessandro to organize a "Concert For Viareggio — Lest We Forget." Accompanied by a house band formed by Massimo Marcolini (musical director and guiitarist), Andrea Cozzani (bass), Guido Carli (drums), Giuseppe Zito (keyboards), Eros Cristiani (keyboards), Joe Damiani (percussion), Sara Grimaldi (vocalist), Stefania Orrico (vocalist), Mario Schilirò (guitar), Derek Wilson (drums), James Thompson (sax) and Massimo Greco (trumpet).

November 2010 saw the release of 'Chocabeck,' already hailed as one of the best, if not the best album ever written by Zucchero. Recorded across the Globe including stints in Los Angeles, Bolgheri, and London the album featured production from some of music's best known alumni including Don Was (The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Roy Orbison) and Brendan O'Brien (AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam). Additional production also came from people who were at the helm of the incredibly successful last Coldplay record (Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends) messrs Jon Hopkins and Davide Rossi. Featuring some of Zucchero's most poignant and touching lyrics he also managed to enlist the assistance of his good friends Bono (who the lyrics for the track 'Someone Else's Tears' ((Il Suono Della Domenica)) and Brian Wilson (who recorded backing vocals for the title track). With this record Zucchero opened up a new chapter in his illustrious and coveted career.

In summer 2012 Zucchero recorded in Havana 'La Sesión Cubana,' an album that featured collaborations from some of Cuba's most important musicians. The album was preceded by the first worldwide single "Guantanamera (Guajira)," which was produced by Zucchero and Don Was, and mixed by Michael Brauer. 'La sesión cubana' combined seven brand new songs with six newly arranged Zucchero hits ("Baila," "Un Kilo," "Così Celeste," "Cuba Libre," "Everybody's got to learn sometime" and "L'Urlo"). The new recordings consisted of the first single "Guantanamera (Guajira)," adapted by Zucchero into Italian, original compositions "Love is all around" and "Sabor a ti," and covers "Never is a moment," "Nena," "Pana" and "Ave Maria no morro." "Nena" and "Pana" are in Spanish, the second one a duet with Bebe, and "Ave Maria no morro," sung in Portuguese, was a duet with one of the most prestigious singers of contemporary Brazilian music, Djavan.

Zucchero described his album in his own words: My music, as everybody knows, comes from blues, from soul, from gospel. This project is a trip from New Orleans to Cuba via Mexicali. Latin, Cuban, tex-mex sounds and rhythms melt together dancing. "Hasta l'asta siempre."

The album was launched with a mega concert event at the University of Arts of Cuba with the collaboration of the Cuban Culture minister, the Cuban Institute of Music and the Italian embassy in Havana. Zucchero performed in front of 80,000 people.
