7 February 2024, Sofia. On February 18 (Sunday) at 20:00 on NOVA  will be broadcasted live the special charity episode "Your face sounds familiar for every child" in partnership with UNICEF. Eight Bulgarian stars and eight talented children will immerse themselves in the characters of eight performers and sing for a cause to fight all forms of violence against children. Next to them on stage will be the beloved hosts Dimitar Rachkov and Gerasim Georgiev - Gero, and at the jury table sits a new quartet who will comment on the performances of each of the duets.

The actress with an Oscar nomination for "Best Actress in a Supporting Role" - Maria Bakalova, the actress and UNICEF National ambassador - Elena Petrova, the legendary football player - Hristo Stoichkov and the producer of the best imitation show "Your face sounds familiar" - Magarditch Halvadhjian, will take the jury seats in the special charity episode of the show. The four will have the difficult task of giving their opinion on each of the performances, but the winner of this episode will be chosen solely by the viewers.

On February 18 at 20:00 NOVA viewers will see under the spotlight favorite stars - Sophie Marinova, Margarita Hranova, Michaela Marinova, Miro, Vladimir Mikhailov, Slavin Slavchev, Veselin Marinov, Alexander Sano and their little partners.
