“We are very honored to have our young talent to perform, especially the Little Dreamers,” said Collins-Mijjati. “Throughout the year, they receive special education in order to be able to perform and this is key to sing together because they have been working very hard to show their talent to the public.”
“This is tremendously exciting for us,” said Collins. “We have a wonderful lineup to perform, including Nicolas from ‘What You Know,’ and Lou Grand who is part of ‘Foreigner’ will be joining us. It will be a bumper, fun-filled evening.”
“Phil and Orianne could be living anywhere in the world but they chose Miami as their home. This speaks volumes – they choose to further enhance our community with their actions,” said DJ Irie.
The â€œDreaming on the Beachâ€Â includes a night of stellar performances, live music, elegant ambiance and fundraising for a worthwhile cause of turning little dreams into big realities.Â #LDFGala2016 #LittleDreamsFoundation @LittleDreamsFNDN
