"Two days ago, Serbia'sSerbia's Government joined UNICEF global call to commit itself again to honour the Convention. There is no better moment to celebrate the renewed collective efforts to achieve rights for every child," Regina De Dominicis, the UNICEF director in Serbia, said.

The audience included many children and their parents who enjoyed the concert.

Besides them, several companies supported the concert, enabling the children with disabilities and invalidity and the orphans from the state institution to attend the show.
