Sofia, 21 January 2022 - UNICEF Bulgaria and NOVA  join again their efforts in support of the children in Bulgaria. They will present the charity TV show “Great Little Ones” in which eight talented children will mentor and teach celebrities new artistic skills. The TV format, hosted by Maria Ignatova and Alex Raeva, will be broadcasted on January 29 at 20:00 on Nova.

During the last Sunday of the month, the spectators will watch the incredible transformations of stars from various areas. 11-year-old Eva will teach the "golden girls" from our rhythmic gymnastics ensemble to dance hip-hop, and 7-year-old Georgi will teach singing to actor Alexander Sano.

Miroslava Ivanova, the host of the morning block of Nova TV "Hello, Bulgaria", took a short break from the daily interviews to appear on stage as a singer after lessons with 8-year-old Victoria. 7-year-old Natalie’s task will be to teach vlogger Andrea Banda Banda aerial acrobatic stunts with roller skates.

The eight talented children will evaluate and comment on the performances of the stars, and viewers of the show will also be able to vote for their favorite by sending a donor text message. The performer and their mentor who receive most donor text messages will be pronounced favourites of the audience and will receive a special award. All funds raised from the extraordinary competition-spectacle will go to UNICEF’s causes and programs supporting children in Bulgaria.

The beloved actress and national ambassador of UNICEF in Bulgaria, Elena Petrova will also participate in the charity show. The newest goodwill ambassador of UNICEF in Bulgaria - Superstar soprano Sonya Yoncheva, as well as the Bulgarian actress with an Oscar nomination Maria Bakalova, will deliver special messages.

Through personal stories people will see the positive changes in the lives of children and families, supported by UNICEF, partners of the organization and individual donors.
