From the moment I entered the theater, I was surrounded by a sense of exclusiveness. The director team had prepared a special dressing room for our children, all the details had been taken into consideration. When the audiences sang with my children on stage at the end, I’m with tears in my eyes. I believe that the parents of other children feel the same. Loves will return to those who gives love, blessings will return to those who blesses others. Chairwoman Madam Anni and Chairwoman Madam Lisa are synonymous with love and beauty. This concert was an unforgettable and beautiful experience between our children and the world madams. It brought us warmth, peace of mind and expectation.
