Success Concert for Africa


By Tor Mællumsæter

Hamar: There was a long queue outside Kulturhuset before yesterday's Africa event. The demand for tickets was so great that people did not manage to get in until 18.00. Therefore, the concert was started a little later, so that everyone had time to get in.

But then it was all filled up in Kulturhuset. Nearly 1,000 people had found their way to the "Let the children live" event. It was a very satisfied presenter Erland Dalen who could state this when he welcomed the audience.

Tickets were sold for NOK 19 365, and the "Let the children live" concert was a huge success both financially and in terms of entertainment.

In the middle of the concert, Stange's [neighboring municipality] mayor Jan Tyriberget appeared. With him he had a check for NOK. 3000, which the presidency had granted. Well done to Stange too!

The money, a total of NOK 22 365, goes to a better life for many Africans.

The image to the right of the headline ''Storartet artistparade'' ("Magnificent artist parade"): "Sometimes I feel" the charming Silje Nergaard did in a highly professional way.

[Note: The caption to the photo mentions as the title of the song 'Sometimes i fell', which undoubtedly means the song "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child".]
