Editor's Note:
"We are the world. We are the children." With the help of holographic technology, children from Italy and China were able to surprise the audience by singing together on the stage at a New Year concert in Shanghai on Thursday.

One by one, the members of the Italy's Little Choir of Antoniano "landed" on the stage of the Shanghai Children's Art Theatre on Thursday night. Together with Little Choir of Hydrangea, which is in Shanghai, the Little Choir of Antoniano sang some of their most popular songs – "The Vegetarian Zombie," "The Shark" and "Forza Gesù."

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Italian choir, which has gained fame in China for hosting annual New Year concerts in Shanghai and other cities in the past five years, could not make the journey to China this year. However, the concerts were not delayed – the theatre and the choir have made great efforts to make sure the New Year's gift is delivered on time.

"We hope the singing of the children can bring more love to people who are struggling in difficulties and sorrow," Giampaolo Cavalli, general manager and director of the Antoniano said. Photos: Yang Hui/GT
