“A Family that Plays Together, Stays Together” Mamma Mia Band Concert

The Mamma Mia Band held a successful concert at the Enabling Village on Sat 31 August! The audience was delighted by their repertoire of evergreen and contemporary hits including “More Than I Can Say” and “甜蜜蜜”! Many crooned along to familiar tunes, with some even displaying their abilities as Dancing Queens (and Kings)!

It is the first band formed by caregivers of special needs children at Faith Music Centre as part of the “A Family that Plays Together, Stays Together” project funded by the Tote Board Enabling Lives Initiative (TBELI) Grant. It also saw other caregivers support their band mates in the setting up and dismantling of musical instruments and stage equipment. TBELI Grant is funded by Tote Board and supported by SG Enable to improve the well-being of persons with disabilities and their caregivers.
