Algarve Teens raise over €500 for charity

A group of young performers known as Algarve Teens put on a great show on March 26 (Sunday) at the Casa do Povo in Messines, raising over €500 for ‘Sorrir M’, a local association that helps people with special needs.

The group of 18 youngsters aged from 10 to 16 danced and sang their way through a lively and entertaining set which included songs from “Grease” and “Annie” as well as some contemporary hits.

The children, who had chosen their own styling with coordinated hairstyles, colours and costume changes, performed two 35-minute sets and were “energised and professional throughout”, writes group coordinator Heavelni Denton.

Young solo vocalists Daniela Lyth-Santos, Alice Dalston, Nikolay Kalinin, Daisy-Mae Denton and Inês Guimarães all sung “fantastically” to songs by Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan and Beyoncé.

It was a truly “memorable charity event, especially when members of the audience were invited to join the group onstage for the finale of Bruno Mars’ ‘24K’,” Denton adds, saying the youngsters hope this will be the start of them performing more regularly at local events.
