Lionel Friedberg is an Emmy Award-winning film maker and a New York Times bestselling author with a special interest in environmental topics, human rights and animal welfare issues. We've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Friedberg many times. And now he'll share some remarks. "I must say that the positivity though and the love in this room today is overwhelmingly palpable. You can feel it; you can see it; it's around everywhere." Our next performer is renowned Italian soprano, Giorgia Fumanti, who is based in Montreal, Canada. Her celestial voice has been heard on the biggest stages around the globe and in two of our Association's past concerts. Let us welcome her to the stage. "Praised be the Providence! Thanks to Earth and Heavens, To invisible and visible beings. For the grace bestowed upon Supreme Master Television. May this forever be blessed, To serve the world for peace and happiness."
