Little Dreams Foundation Welcomes Manchester United soccer player
Marouane Fellaini As New Godfather
Manchester United Athlete Welcomed by Five-Time Grammy Award Winner and Foundation Co-founder Phil Collins at The Setai Hotel in Miami Beach
Foundation's Second Annual Children's Audition To Take Place this Saturday, June 20th,
in Deerfield Beach, Florida with Phil Collins in judging panel
Miami Beach, FL, June 19, 2015 – Little Dreams Foundation (LDF) announced today that Belgian soccer player Marouane Fellaini will serve as its newest godfather in order to further the organization's mission of fulfilling the dreams of young aspiring talents without financial means to achieve their goals. The Manchester United athlete's announcement comes as LDF prepares to launch its second annual U.S. auditions for musically talented children ages 4-16 on Saturday, June 20th, from 3-7 p.m. at Markee Rehearsal Studio in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Fellaini was welcomed by five-time Grammy Award winner and LDF co-founder Phil Collins at a press conference at The Setai Hotel in Miami Beach.
For the children who are selected from the musical auditions, LDF is offering the chance of a lifetime: a 12-month journey receiving mentorship and lessons to ensure their musical talents continue to flourish and develop. For the first time in the United States, songwriter and recording artist Phil Collins will judge the audition process. In addition, this year's audition panel of judges will include LDF co-founder Orianne Collins, son Nick Collins and musical director David Frangioni. All interested candidates and media outlets can find more information on how to register by visiting the foundation's web site: www.ldf.cc.
Fellaini will strengthen the organization's sports program, which provides children with optimal opportunities for success and potentially advances them toward a professional career in the field of their true passion. Fellaini arrived to Old Trafford (United's home ground) from Everton in the 2013-2014 premier league season. Fellaini's goal against Crystal Palace away is occasionally called the goal that sent United back to Champions League after missing the prestigious competition. He scored his first goal against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns in a game that ended 2-2. Now, he is regarded as a key member of the Manchester United team.
The fundraising season kicked off for Little Dreams Foundation at Joe's Stone Crab's annual "Brunch on the Beach," which proved that through guidance, the sky is the limit for children whose passion is music. Phil Collins is looking forward to continuing his work with less fortunate children.
