Well I just got back from a fabulous event to raise money for the Millennium Foundation (my company is a major sponsor) and who should performing at this event but the wonderful Anthony Callea and his equally wonderful partner, Tim Campbell. wub.gif

They sang Time after time, Get Here and Horses - just sublime. biggrin.gif John Foreman accompanied them on the piano. This was such a treat for me. As we arrived at the event Anthony and Tim had just arrived and Anthony took the time to have a chat and later came over (at my request) to take a photo with us. Also at this event there were some dancers from So You Think You Can Dance, Natalie Gauci and Michael Paynter. The comperes were Paul Mercurio and Jessica Rowe. There were lots of celebrities from Grant Denyer, Underbelly stars, Dicko who actually praised Anthony twice. rolleyes.gif

When I found out that Anthony was going to perform I invited a few of my fellow Anthony fans. I'm sure you will hear from them.

It was a wonderful night for such an important charity and all the celebrities and entertainers donated their time to help raise money for this event.

I was lucky enough to be there with Christine (thankyou so much Christine)

It was a wonderful night for a great cause and they raised a lot of money for Westmead Hospital research through the Millenium Foundation. The event was sponsored by companies, so it was lots of Corporate tables.

It was great atmosphere, great cause, great entertainment and great company and the food was yummy. The venue was just beautiful and having Anthony and Tim there was the icing on the cake, they were just fantastic.

Anthony was so charming he has no airs and graces about him, he's very down to earth.

As Christine said Tim sang Time after Time and Anthony did his BV's biggrin.gif and then they sang Get Here together which was just beautiful again, and then Anthony sang one his favourites The Horses and Tim did Anthony's BV's biggrin.gif .

Dicko prasing Anthony, was great to hear at last and also John Foreman did as well and Jessica Rowe gave them a great introduction.

It was good to see Natalie Gauci performing as well. (she's getting married in 3 weeks time)

I will do a bigger review tonight as I think of things and I'm just about to go out.

Unfortunately I didn't do well with the camera, (I have a new one but it was too big to take in my little evening purse laugh.gif ) so this is one very grainy picture, so you can at least see what he was wearing Judi. laugh.gif They both looked gorgeous.

I'm back...

Hey Hanan its was at Darling Harbour in the Grand Ballroom so not the one you heard near the State laugh.gif . The event through the Foundation was sponsored by a group of about 30 Corporate companies who had a number of tables. They raised money Auctioning items throughout the night that business's donated and they had a professional auctioneer. There were a lot of dignatories speeches throughout the evening.

Judi that was part of his shirt, I will post another dodgy picky which shows it better. huh.gif (I really need to toss this camera)

What Dicko & John said is a bit fuzzy in my mind, but something about his fantastic voice and then they talked about him still holding the unbroken record for the highest selling single of all time, it was brief but all complimentary and he mentioned him again when he intro?d Natalie. About his wonderful performance earlier.

Natalie sang an original and two from Idol, Crazy and Man In The Mirror and I think she finished with a little original, I can't really remember what that was but she sounded great as well.

The crowd were very responsive to Anthony & Tim, and they well received in all songs with great applause. It was table seating with a dinner, so quite different to any concert style performance. All up they where probably onstage performing for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Dicko was I guess you would call him the MC for the entertainment and his Management Company are one of the sponsors.

When Jessica Rowe introduced them she said something along the lines 'What do you get when you put together an Aria award winning artist, an Actor singer vocalist and one of Australia most popular MD's , I tell you what you get, 3 of the best entertainers in the World wub.gif

For their performance of Get Here they were both emaculately suited up so it was a bit more formal than the concert, still sitting and more like the performance at the Leukemia foundation concert last year, they were just as great.

Time After Time, Tim sang this one with Anthony doing Bv's and harmonies.

All the act's did their full sets at once, it was a pretty packed agenda they had to get through, as they were doing the auctions during the course. The NSW premier gave a speech and they donated $30m to the fund which was a fantastic boost.

I was lucky enough to be able to go to this one thanks so much to Christine. We had a fabulous night and Anthony and Tim were awesome. It was great to see them sing together and looking so content and relaxed with each others company.
The lady sitting next to me said how much she and her daughter really like Anthony and when he sang the duet she turned to me and said he really does have a great voice doesn't he. I could only agree fully.
We were lucky to have a little chat with him and he is just so generous with his fans. He wasn't giving anything away too much about his new album just that he was working on it. He mentioned he had a month off and really enjoyed it.
It was fun to glam up and catch up with friends again and of course seeing Anthony perform is always the best.

We work together with our sponsors and donors to build a community of support for all children and their families who are struggling with life changing critical injuries.

2009 Day of Difference Benefit Ball ?Best Yet?

QUOTE

The 2009 Day of Difference Benefit Ball has been declared ?the best ever? by its Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Ron Delezio.

The Benefit Ball, held last Saturday at Star City, attracted over 370 guests including the NSW Premier Nathan Rees, the NSW Opposition Leader Barry O?Farrell, and Senator Mark Arbib who represented Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

Also in attendance were Manly MP Mike Baird and Day of Difference Ambassadors Paralympian Kurt Fearnley and singer Charli Delaney.

The Gala raised funds to help Day of Difference continue its work of purchasing much-needed hospital equipment and facilities to save children?s lives, funding research into burns and skin technology and supporting critically injured children and their families on their journey from emergency to recovery.

Richard Wilkins MC?d the evening, which featured performances from Anthony Callea, Paul Martell, the String Divas and Sophie Delezio singing with the Australian Girls Choir.

Premier Rees topped up the funds raised on the night with a $25,000 donation.

?We?ve had thank you emails and phone calls from many that attended, particularly corporates, telling us that our Ball was the best they had been to on the Sydney charity circuit,? Mr Delezio said.

?The night was a great success and thanks to the generosity of all our supporters, Day of Difference was able to raise much needed funds for critically injured kids and their families -- and everybody had fun doing it.?

?I want to thank all who attended, including the Premier, Mr O?Farrell and Senator Arbib ? all of whom are great supporters of Day of Difference.?

Mr Delezio said the Delezio family had ?learned? through Sophie?s accidents that anything can happen to anyone at anytime.

?We felt helpless when our daughter was seriously injured in, not one, but two car accidents.

?Her survival inspired us to make sure that when any child is critically injured, Day of Difference can be there for them and their family.??

I was home too late last night, but it won't surprise that I went to the Day of Difference Ball last night with some good friends, just couldn't resist as it was for one of the most wonderful worthy causes and they had the ultimate performer. biggrin.gif

It was such a great night the whole evening's events were fantastic and the work that Day of Difference have achieved since its inception by the Delezio family is nothing short of amazing.

Sophie Delezio is such a gorgeous little girl and is such an inspiration, you just need to look at what she has gone through and is still going through in her few short years and it really puts things into perspective. She sang with the Australian Girls Choir last night and was having the time of her life.

They had a couple of speakers, one was Kurt Fearnley the Day of Diff ambassador, he is a Gold medalist Para-olympian and was an inspiring a young man, his story was wonderful, it had you in tears at time and laughing the next, he has achieved so much in his life and his determination hasn't let anything get in his way. You couldn't help be touched by his story.


They had a fantastic comedian that had us in stitches, The String Divas, The Australian Girls Choir and then the most wonderful Anthony Callea.

Richard Wilkins was the emmcee and gave Anthony a wonderful introduction, called him a wonderful young man, talked about his achievements and his charity work and called him an humanitarian.

He was wearing his suit from the Apra's and looked very gorgeous. He just had a keyboard player with him, I'm not sure but think it could have been Mark Amato's brother? not 100% . Anthony was in such fine voice just him and the keyboard he sounded wonderful.

Anthony looked so relaxed and happy and it shone through in his performance, he talked a little between each song, he was on stage for about 25 minutes I'm guessing (it just went all to quickly).

He started with Rain, then The Horses, Undiscovered (a very funky version) and finished with a stunning performance of The Prayer. He got a wonderful response from the audience, he' such a natural onstage and can't wait for his next tour or event.

I have some pictures they are a bit grainy sorry, I still haven't quite mastered the new camera yet ohmy.gif and I was a bit further back this time. I will post some more tonight will add some more details as my foggy brain clears.. smile.gif

Okay here is a little clip of Anthony singing Undiscovered. Its not fantastic so thats why I was delayed in adding it, but did a bit of joining and tidying up but you still see the restricted view and people passing by laugh.gif and background noise and me wobbling when someone past by. But I think he sounded so wonderful and love the way he sung this so thought you would love to see it also regardless, I do wish it was the full version.

biggrin.gif It was a great night! Everyone was very casual and relaxed and quite funny. I was surprised and disappointed to see a lot of empty seats there, but I think everyone who went would have had a great time. It certainly was well worth the small cost, and for me it was well and truly more than my money's worth just to see and hear Anthony!!!

He was very cute on the tennis court, and although, like all the other celebs, he had a few funny little misses, he did actually play pretty well. I think he should be pretty proud of himself, he actually got some pretty impressive shots in - Go Anth!!

He sang absolutely beautifully, as always, The Prayer was breathtaking once again, and I finally got to hear A New Chapter, which I absolutely love love love, and Addicted To You, which was also great and more funky. Really can't wait to get the album even more now! A New Chapter is a beautiful big ballad with very meaningful and touching lyrics, which I'm sure many people will be able to relate to, and Addicted To You is a great pop rock song in a similar style to Meant For Love.

I took a few photos, but I was quite a distance away, and me the idiot, didn't know I had a digital zoom on my camera that could double the zoom I was using - I just found out this morning - so I was struggling to get a decent shot. As I don't have a very big memory chip on my camera, I decided to concentrate more on the video footage, so I could hopefully have some record of the new songs to reflect on whilst waiting for the album to come out. I got a little of The Prayer, the last part, and a fair chunk of A New Chapter, but I realised my memory was widdling away, and started to panic, so I was a little too conservative with Addicted To You. Then when L4L was on, somehow, how just got so lost in the moment, that I forgot to tape it at all, and just as he finished it I suddenly realised my stupidity, but it was too late. Then I was hoping for one more new song to at least get a substantial amount for that, and he sang Rain, which was great, and I got some of that, but I would really have preferred to get a newby over that, especially L4L.

Anyway, I will try to work out how to upload them on here, hopefully, it's not against the rules, but it may take a few days to work out.

Also, I finally got to meet him, which was really fantastic, but I was so nervous, and so conscience of people waiting to go through behind me, that I really rushed myself a little more than was necessary, and I just couldn't think of what I wanted to say, so all I could get out was that I love him and think he is the best talent to come out in a very long time. He said thank you very much, got my name and signed my cd cover, and that was about it. My hubby complained that I went through to quickly, and he didn't have a chance to get a decent photo of me talking to him, he did take one, but I look absolutely shocking in it, so I don't know if I can bring myself to put it on here, but we did get a decent photo of the girl I was speaking to from this forum, but I didn't get her name, so if she reads this, I was wearing a burgundy top and I said I would get a photo of you, but my brain turned to jelly, and I didn't think about it until after I left. I'm very sorry, I didn't mean to let you down, but hubby did manage to get a decent shot of you on our camera, so hopefully, you will see it on here, and copy it into your computer.
I keep wishing I could have thought to ask for one quick photo with him, and all I had to do was turn around and look at hubby, who was ready and waiting to take it! Kicking myself, kicking myself, kicking myself!!! ohmy.gif laugh.gif

Hey guys the following article was in the January Bone Growth Foundation newsletter that I received in the mail today (if it has already been posted feel free to delete it Nonna )

On Saturday 18th November the 2006 Gerard McCabe jewellers Celebrity Tennis Challenge returned to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre after a 6 year absence.

The venue looked sensational, with a blue and terracotta carpet like court being laid and played on for the first time, thanks to Grassman.

Celebrities were introduced onto the court one at a time and had to return a ball fed to them by tennis coach John Douglas Owens. The last two standing being none other than Anthony Callea and ball boy Oliver Carroll who took on Sharni Vinson and trent Baines of Home and Away fame in a mini match.

Next up the crowd was entertained by an exhibition match between tennis legends John Fitzgerald, Darren Cahill, Roger Rasheed and Pat Rafter. Roger even jumping the net with one of his returns which was very impressive.

The Scared Weird Little Guys performed a set of their funny dities and were a real crowd pleaser.

We then ran a knockout match, which saw Corrine Grant and Pat Rafter defeating Fitzy and Colin Lane - Pat surviving after Corrine accidentally served the ball into his neck! Darren Cahill and Gary Sweet defeated Anthony Callea and Roger Rasheed. Gary and Darren then played off against Corrine and Pat and were thrilled with their win.

Finally the Power and the Crows boys faced off, with Nathan van Berlo and Jason Porplyzia victorious over Brendon Lade and Kane Cornes.

Anthony Callea closed the evening with a "set" of his own. He then signed autographs and CD's for over an hour to ensure every guest was happy.

The night raised close to $50 000 profit for the Bone Growth Foundation with celebrities, patrons, sponsors and corporate guests all thrilled to be involved.

Hii!

This is my first little review-like thingy...so here I go! I'll try and make it short...ish!

I went with my Mum and sister Danielle and we got there at about...5:20pm. We went to the cafeteria and got to meet a bunch of forumers (great to meet you guys - love the little banner Kanisa! ) and after a snack we went and found our seats (we were kinda high up but it wasn't too bad).

And the show started! Of course Anth got the usual short jokes... ("Well folks they don't get much bigger than this! Well actually they do..." "Anthony, can you see over the net?" *shakes head*) I really enjoyed watching the tennis, there were some pretty funny moments (including poor Pat Rafter getting hit on the head with a ball from Corrine Grant's serve ) and Anth did a few cool moves to score his team a few points .

Saving the best for last, Anth closed the show with an awesome performance of The Prayer, A New Chapter, Addicted to You, Live for Love and Rain. That would have been the best I've heard Anthony perform The Prayer, it was great! I really like A New Chapter! And Addicted to You is really cool . Anth got the crowd clapping along during Rain too.

After Anth's performance, Danielle, Mum and I dashed down to where he would be signing. My gawd the line was huuuge! Probably waited in line for about...half an hour maybe . I gave Mum the camera in case we were allowed to have pics with him, but It turned out that we couldn't . Oh well.

When we finally reached Anthony he asked us if we enjoyed the show and what our names where (Danielle got the Live for Love single signed and I got my forum tag signed ). I was sooo nervous, I think the only thing I said to Anth was "Hi!" "Yep!" "I'm rainbow_butterflies" and "thanks!" lol!

I was so pumped after that, I messaged a couple of my friends telling them that I'd met Anthony, haha.

The digital camera that I brought doesn't have good zoom so the pictures didn't look very good. I did record a little bit of some of the tennis games that Anth played in! And since we only have dialup here at home I don't think I'd be able to upload any videos of him playing tennis . Buuut I did make a few little animated pictures for you all to look at!

So yeah...it was a very memorable night! I'll post a few piccies for you guys to look at .

Thanks for reading!

Hey everyone!! I am soo happy at the moment! I finally met Anth after trying all four times he has been to Adelaide... it was the moment I've been waiting for for 2 years ahaha
I can't go to sleep - i am too pumped

Ok well I'll try and put in everything I remember...

My family and I got to the Entertainment centre and I bought a program lol i'll post up a pic of that! I then saw Stacy and then went with my family to find our seats! I had a great view! I spotted Anth peaking around one of the black curtains I had a heart attack ahaha

We waited a bit then soon all the celebs came off for a bit of a practice and they got eliminated one by one! Anth was left and he played with a kid! It was very cute!! He kept twirling around his tennis racquet. He played against two home and away stars (cassie and macca)

While the other celebs were playing, I was following Anth with my eyes stalker alert lol ahahaha He was "mingling" lol with the members of the Bone Growth foundation and VIPS etc

Then Anth came back on for another game! He was with Roger Rasheed and played against Gary Sweet and umm let me check the photos lol
Anyway this time he had a microphone on so you could hear all his comments! omg i laughed so much!! He is actually not too bad at tennis! It was so funny - he nearly crashed into the fence!! hehe I've got videos so I'll try and upload them if i work out how aha

Once that game had finished I started to panic because I didn't know if I should go and line up to meet him or stay and listen to him sing. ...I stayed but was so scared I would miss him!
The 5 songs he sang were of course beautiful! He sang The Prayer first (gorgeous as always), A New Chapter (loveeee it), Addicted to You (hehe before he sang he was like "it's time to funk it up"- gotta luv him ahaha this song was also greatttt!!), Live For Love (beautiful) and Rain (everyone got into this!) And I got a wave from him YAY!! It was really cute during The Prayer, these kids were dancing on the tennis court and after the song Anth said something like it being the first time he had had dancers to that song...something along the lines of that!!

After that, i ran out to line up...there was another girl in front of me running too so I didn't feel quite so embarrassed The line was huge! I went to the back but then my mum came out and said that I could move up because someone we knew was closer...When I saw Anth so up close it was like wow! It was the closest I've ever been to him. We weren't allowed to have pictures with him but my sis took a pic of me and him talking. omg i still can't believe I met him!!!!! *SPAZ* wo0o lol anyway i said
me: hi anthony!
anth:hi! how are you?
me:good thankyou!how are you?
anth: what's your name?
me:Antonetta...do u want me to spell it?
(he started writing it anyway lol he spelt it wrong but meh i don't mind! i'm just so happy i met him!)
me: you played a great game of tennis!! lol
anth: nah i didn't really lol
(then he gave me my cd)
me:thankyou!

And after that I couldn't stop smiling!!
Thankyou so much Anth for coming to Adelaide It was a great night!
Will try and get my photos and videos up soon!
Luv, Antonetta xox

Here are some pix! There are more to come! They kept turning out dark when I had it in sport mode. But if it wasn't in sport mode, they would turn out as a complete blur but I just brightened them a bit. Sorry they're not very good!

If you?re stuck for that perfect Christmas gift this season, why not bid for some hand-made, one-of-a-kind pottery by Australia?s cutest couple, Anthony Callea and Tim Campbell.

The pair made the festive gifts for each other during a recent interview with Andy and Adrian on community radio station JOY 94.9, and were so proud of their handiwork, they decided to auction it off on eBay, with all proceeds donated to the Dialysis Escape Line. Bidding closes on these pieces at 6pm December 19, so check out www.andyandadrian.com to see how to bid.

I have been (Secretly)  ninja.gif  smile.gif  on Edge for the last several weeks.  unsure.gif Because after I saw that awesome video of Anthony and Tim making their toys for the auction and the proceeds going to Charity... well I knew I had to have it rolleyes.gif and now my high bid makes me, uhm well happy.  smile.gif

However I would like to see these two Objects de Art stay in Australia along with some safe place we can start to put other Anthony Memorabilia, especially for public display.

Museums, coffee shops, Anthony's favorite haunts (not your secret ones) wink.gif perhaps a hospital or in this case this Dialysis Charity, perhaps even Joy Radio may have a display case in their radio station, because of all of the public services that they are engaged with in the Melbourne Community. You get the idea.

Just to let all of you know, I received an e-mail today from Adrian of Joy Radio confirming the delivery of the Anthony and Tim Fimo Clay Objects of Art to the Dialysis Head Office in Stepney, Australia.

For those of you that may some day wish to see them ... their website is: www.dialysisescapeline.com . You may wish to notify them ahead of time, since this is a working business operation and not a museum, of your desires to look at the art work.

Thank you Anthony, Tim, Adrian, and Andy for the inspirations.

DUETING IT FOR THE KIDS
State Theatre, Sydney

Stars of the Australian music industry to shine in aid of The Australian Children’s Music Foundation

Dueting it for the Kids is a unique concert unlike anything else staged in Australia. This event brings together the cream of the recording and concert industry – both legends and newcomers – in a concert of duets with proceeds going to The Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF).

The concert is being held at the State Theatre on Monday 22nd August. The line-up is phenomenal with performances from artists including Marina Prior, John Waters, Caroline O’Connor, Jessica Mauboy, Lee Kernaghan, Diesel, Antoinette Halloran, Catherine Britt, Danielle Spencer, Dave Faulkner, Debra Byrne, Doug Parkinson, Leo Sayer, Murray Cook, Peter Northcote, Ross Wilson, Steve Balbi, Don Spencer, Steve Kilbey, Tim Freedman, Wendy Matthews, Glenn Shorrock and more to be announced. The MC’s for this extravaganza will be Adam Spencer and James Valentine from 702 ABC Sydney.

All funds raised at this event go towards music programs that the ACMF run for disadvantaged and Indigenous youth across Australia. The Foundation was established in 2002 by Don Spencer OAM in response to the fact that over 75% of public schools in Australia no longer have a specialty music teacher. “Each week, our incredible teachers provide music education for children who, in many cases, have suffered severe physical and emotional abuse almost impossible to comprehend. Through music we bring joy, enhance imagination and creativity and give these children the chance to dream”.

Tickets are $120 A reserve/$99 B reserve (transaction fees may apply). To book tickets, please go to www.ticketmaster.com.au or phone 136 100.

For more information about the ACMF, please visit www.acmf.com.au

August 1, 2011


Dueting it for the Kids will be a night full of surprises with a massive roster of artists collaborating for one night only at Sydney's State Theatre on Monday 22 August.

Many of Australia's greatest will be paired-off to recreate rock anthems and pop hits as duets, all to help the Australian Children's Music Foundation (ACMF) continue its important work with disadvantaged young Australians.

More iconic vocalists have just signed on to a huge line-up of stars already announced for the 2011 show including Deni Hines, Jon Stevens and 17 year-old Australia's Got Talent sensation Liam Burrows.

Damien Leith will take to the stage with opera diva Antoinette Halloran for a haunting duet arrangement of the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah and Liam Burrows will team with seasoned crooner Tom Burlinson to sing the Rat Pack favourite Lady is a Tramp.

Wendy Matthews will sing Stop Draggin My Heart Around with The Church front man Steve Kilbey, while rock legends Dave Gleeson of Screaming Jets fame and Angry Anderson will raise the roof with Thin Lizzy's Boys Are Back in Town.

Other artists in the phenomenal line-up include Anthony Callea, Michael Cormick, Susie Ahern, Michael, Carr, Marina Prior, Diesel, John Waters, Caroline O'Connor, Lee Kernaghan, Catherine Britt, Danielle Spencer, Dave Faulkner, Debra Byrne, Doug Parkinson, Leo Sayer, MurRay Cook, Peter Northcote, Ross Wilson, Steve Balbi, Don Spencer, Tim Freedman, Paulini, and Glenn Shorrock.
The MC's for this extravaganza will be Adam Spencer and James Valentine from 702 ABC Sydney.
