“Mazi Mporoume Kalytera” A Silver Spotlight initiative
April 2020 – internet/TV release 

 

In the midst of the corona virus crisis and quarantine, what better to lift everyone’s tattered spirits than the unified voices of 29 talented children? Silver Spotlight’s idea was to get each child, from their own isolation in their home, to send his or her video of the song “Mazi Mporoume Kalytera/Together We Can Do Better”  from the musical “Gourouniasmata II – Adventure in the Forest” . With the help of Nicolas Ntimas Music Productions and Potenzia Del Arte  a beautiful video was made that quickly went viral, receiving mentions from various TV entertainment, infotainment programs and Newscasts, as well as being shared by the President of the Republic of Cyprus on Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday as a message of hope and unity.
