GIVING BACK PHIL COLLINS HELPING LITTLE DREAMS COME TRUE By Stephanie Lesser On December 6 at the Fillmore Miami Beach, legendary Phil Collins will headline the annual benefit concert for the Little Dreams Foundation (LDF), a scholarship and mentoring program he founded in 2000 with his former spouse Orianne Collins Mejjati. Since its establishment, LDF has helped fulfill the dreams of hundreds of children from around the world who are gifted in art, music or sports. Though based in Europe, LDF recently opened a U.S. branch in Miami and also supports children in Morocco and Zimbabwe through special programs. To participate in LDF, children ages 4 to 16 can audition to receive a full year of mentoring and support from LDF, including children with disabilities who are selected through the foundation’s No Difference program. Ultimately, the training and mentoring LDF kids receive give them their best possible chance at making a career out of their passions. To help fulfill this mission, the foundation is supported by numerous Godparents who generously volunteer their time to train and mentor the children, as well as technical advisors, sponsors and other supporters who help make little dreams come true. One supporter is David Frangioni, the founder and CEO of Audio One. As board member and musical director for LDF, Frangioni will lead a world-class live band at this year’s concert, which will be held in Miami for the first time and will showcase talented LDF kids from around the world including those supported by the Miami branch. Noting a deep personal connection to the foundation, Frangioni says, “It is a true honor to be working with Orianne and Phil Collins to help inspire and teach children music and entertainment.” To learn more about the Little Dreams Foundation and how you can get involved, visit www.ldf.cc.
