Review ONE WORLD FAMILY Days – Opening Concert
On Thursday, the 12th September 2013, saw the first ONE WORLD FAMILY Days started in Hall 1 of Messe Stuttgart.
The German pop stars Xavier Naidoo and Nena properly fueled the audience with a grand opening concert at the beginning of this unique event.
7000 spectators had come to witness this spectacle live, and they were rewarded with a great program.
The kick-off this evening was the ONE WORLD FAMILY children's choir, consisting of approximately 500 children giving their best for the choir director Thomas Preiß, with the peace anthem "We are the world". In addition, they sang a song entitled "All the children of the world" together with Freddy Sahin-Scholl.
The event was officially opened by the patron Dr. Auma Obama, the sister of the President, after this very emotional start.
Thus, the stage was set for the main acts of the night. The first was the group "Sing for Your Life“as the opening act.
Following the Hamburg pop icon Nena rocked the stage and wowed the crowd with a brilliant, high-energy program.
She had all her big hits such as „99 Red Balloons“and „Somehow” as part of the package, as well as songs from her new album "You're good."
After this strong show Xavier Naidoo enchanted the audience with his gentle, soulful voice with titles such as "This Way" or "Upon my soul," and provided a wonderful conclusion to the evening with his 90-minute show.
