Amira really wanted, instead of Christmas presents for her, one piece of playground equipment for a new playground.
Thanks to an action, with the help of “gelukskinders”, specially set up for this purpose on Facebook and here on amirafans.nl, Amira can place a whole new playground.
More than € 8500,- has been donated. THANK YOU ALL.
Next year, 2019, FOUR new playgrounds that Amira will open… Fantastic!
Amira herself has made more children happy with all kinds of gifts from the proceeds of her last Christmas concerts in South Africa.
Especially balls… lots of balls, there were some smaller gifts too… Amira shows her golden heart again here.
For 200 children, in a township of Ikageng, this Christmas will be remembered for a long, long time.
An eyewitness report.
The Ken McKenzie Auditorium was packed to full capacity on Saturday night for a concert featuring the remarkable fourteen-year-old soprano prodigy, Amira Willighagen.
We were treated to solo performances of Ennio Morricone’s ‘Your Love’ and a magical rendition of ‘Hallelujah’.
She joined the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir to perform Mozart’s ‘Ave Verum Corpus’, César Franck’s ‘Panis Angelicus’,
Nilsson’s ‘Gabriellas Sång’, a memorable rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ and the upbeat Pentatonix version of ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’.Amira gave the spellbound audience a taste of her richly powerful voice, and showed off her extraordinary ability to sing long legato phrases elegantly and to sustain top notes.
Sustained standing ovations paid due tribute to her amazing talent, and her decision to perform at our concert rather than attend an awards ceremony in France endeared her to all present. Bravissima Diva!
Using profits from two church concerts, Amira once again managed to help those in need. Yet another of her many good deeds.
She brought happiness to 50 orphans with Christmas gifts. Together with her friend and her whole family, she distributed them in the Promosa Primary School. For all these children, this was their first Christmas WITH gifts.
Amira – a girl with a golden heart. That is expressed not only through her foundation, but also through her everyday attitude.

Next Saturday December 8th, Amira will perform together with the Drakensberg Boys Choir, in Winterton Zuid-Afrika.
We hope that we can show some pictures of that event next week.
