On June 4 2011 the Hotel Villa Padierna near Marbella, hosted the prestigious gala event for The Children for Peace Onlus, based in Rome. As it was an event to raise finance for children in dire need, children were highly represented at this event which was supported by volunteers and attended by international stars and celebrities. This unedited video, shows only a very small part of one of the early rehearsals that took place during the day of the event.

This video effectively demonstrates the infectuous enthusiasm of the excited children going through their paces, overseen by the dance Academy F.A.M.A choreographed by it’s talented director Manuela Veronese.  FAMA:

Model, actress, writer and humanitarian, and UNESCO Artist for Peace, Marisa Berenson was the Honoray Chairwoman for the evening, and Ana Obregón once again delighted those who came to support The Children for Peace.

The music was composed  by Dario Poli and the Spanish lyrics by Yanela Brooks.
