Musicians want to send a signal against the war in Ukraine with a benefit concert. A very special guest is seven-year-old Amelia, who became known as the “Frozen” girl.
With a streaming benefit concert and a fundraising marathon, international musicians protested against Russia’s war in Ukraine on Sunday evening and showed solidarity.
The program, which was also streamed on YouTube under the motto “Save Ukraine – #StopWar”, which was not broadcast by any major broadcaster in Germany, was moderated from Warsaw on the television station TVP from 5.30 p.m. CEST (6.30 p.m. in Ukraine on the Ukrainian TV station 1+ 1). She worked with live performances, switching to different cities like Prague, Berlin and Paris, as well as singles Fatboy Slim and Salvador Sobral
The supporting artists included the British musician Fatboy Slim, the Portuguese musician Salvador Sobral, who won the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Kyiv in 2017, and the Ukrainian ESC winners Jamala (2016) and Ruslana (2004).
Seven-year-old Amelia from Ukraine, who became world-famous as the so-called “Frozen” girl, also performed live in the studio. The child, who has since fled to Poland, became famous with a clip in which it sang the Oscar-winning song “Let it go” from the Disney film “The Ice Princess” (original title: “Frozen”) in a bunker.
The money collected with the campaign will go to the Ukrainian Ministry of Social Policy. The donations are intended to finance food and accommodation for refugees as well as their provision of food, clothing and medicine.
