Recently, our city of Miami received again, the Five-time GRAMMY Award-winning music legend Phil Collins and his wife Orianne Collins for the 3rd annual Dreaming on the Beach Gala, on December 9th, 2017 at Jackie Gleason Theater at The Fillmore Miami Beach in Washington Avenue in Miami Beach.
The black-tie event that was co- hosted by Louis Aguirre was filled with a parade of ballgowns and tuxedos at the red carpet featuring prominent fashion mavens, socialites, business leaders, notable philanthropists and jetsetters with the common goal of raising funds for The Little Dreams Foundation.
Among the artists were: GRAMMY Award-winning Italian artist Laura Pausini, GRAMMY Award nominee rock singer KT Tunstall, Latin pop Venezuelan singer Nacho, Spanish soul artist Pitingo, and Miami-based rock band 5800, which performed later at the Gala.

This year, more than 2,000 guests were welcomed to the star-studded celebration with an extravagant cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by dinner and special performances by Little Dreamer artists, who earned musical lessons and coaching at the Little Dreams Open Audition, accompanied by a world-class live band performance.
To close out the evening on the highest note, an intimate and unplugged performance by Phil Collins and world-renowned artist Laura Pausini blew the crowd away!
“Our goal at Little Dreams Foundation is to advocate and provide children in music, art and sports personalized training and supervision to facilitate their passions and help fulfill their dreams,” says Orianne. “The benefit event gives us the opportunity to celebrate and raise funds in support of the Little Dreams Foundation kids.”
Phil Collins adds, “Orianne and I founded the foundation in 2000 and are very excited to be presenting the second annual U.S. benefit gala, bringing together supporters and partners of the foundation, global music entertainers, and Little Dreamers, the young aspiring talent that make up the Little Dreams Foundation.”
