..... another ACOF milestone……
Today is ACOF’s Birthday – 2 years for Anthony’s new website and forum September 2010-September 2012 AND 7 years altogether for the ACOFIAN family March 2005-2012. Anthony's initial Official Website was launched in March 2005 with the Official Forum (ACOF) officially opened March 11th, 2005. The new Website and forum was officially launched on September 1st 2010.
ACOF- Anthony Callea Official Forum; it's a place for visitors and members to find information about Anthony's music releases, performances and concerts, it's a 'home' for many fans where they come together to .. help keep the forum up-to-date with news, articles and photographs, take part in discussions, share reviews, photos and youtube clips, keep track of important events with the 'count downs' and give support to each other when in need of extra comfort, care, understanding and advice.
It is all a part of what ACOF is and what it means for each and every one of us. The essence and the purpose of why we all log on, is to read, post, share & enjoy; to celebrate the MAN, Anthony Callea and his music. It's our Joint Journey on ACOF.
Can you believe it???
SO many memories – concerts, shows, performances, musicals, tv appearanaces…..
SO much MUSIC - OMG!! and goosebumps!!
Anthony came out in the second half to a big applause & he looked absolutley stunning as he always does in a beautiful fitting black shiny suit with new shoes & a white shirt. He sang " When You Believe " which I absolutley love but he seemed to sing it even better than I have heard it before last night. Then Anthony sang " Horses " & he got the crowd singing along with him which was a lot of fun. Then he finished up with my all time favourite " The Prayer " I know we say it all the time but Anthony just keeps singing it better & better all the time. I had goosebumps on goosebumps listening to Anthony's beautiful songs & I'm sure the whole audience felt the same.
SO many friendships – geography knows no boundaries
It was lovely to see everyone there, many long term friendships have been made through Anthony's performances.
SO much fun - all of the above and So much more, makes for an impressive dedication to Anthony and ACOF's history; a reason to celebrate.
Hip Hip Hooray!!!!!!!

So here's to our HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS and here's to HAPPY MEMORIES, past, present and future!!!!
From this moment …….
not one of us will ever forget where it all really began …… 2004, tuning in each week as we watched Anthony's Idol journey reach the Grandfinal and we saw the release of his first single, 'The Prayer' make Australian music history as it became the fastest and highest selling single. From being glued to our tv screens during those months of Australian Idol, we then searched the internet for all mentions, articles, photos and footage of Anthony, then attended every live performance possible, some travelling from long distances, even from OS to see and support Anthony.
to this one……
Idol beginnings, they never were, as Anthony worked with dedicated commitment and passion throughout the tv series and has continued to do so with all appearances, concerts, musicals, shows and album releases. Anthony's latest appearances were as special guest performer with Tina Arena and just last weekend when he joined fellow Australian artists for the charity concert, Gotta Have Heart.
When You Believe
