80s pop sensation, Phil Collins, wife Orianne Collins and son Nic Collins, participated in a talent competition for tots last weekend at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Paradise Live Theater on Saturday, June 4th.
The event was to support their favorite charity, the Little Dreams Foundation, for whom they have attended numerous fundraisers over the years. The event was titled the Little Dreams Foundation Annual Open Musical Auditions, and invited kids to open audition for singers, drummers, musicians, guitarists, keyboard players, bass guitarists, violinists, trumpets or any other orchestral instrument player to participate to become one of the LDF “Little Dreamer” kids.
The ages of the participants ranged from 4 all the way to 16 and this year’s judges included Phil and Orianne Collins, Nic Collins and music legend Betty Wright. In the end, five talented Little Dreamers were chosen to receive training and private lessons by a star-studded lineup of coaches and given the opportunity to perform at the 2016 Dreaming on the Beach Gala, to be held this fall.
The Little Dreams Foundation is a non-profit organization co-founded by Phil and Orianne Collins to support the talent and aspirations of children who do not have the financial means to fulfill their dreams.
