United Nations Youth Assembly – Winter 2017

Wednesday night was such a special night being able to represent The Vanaver Caravan at the United Nations Youth Assembly. We’ve performed at their assemblies a few times in the past, and it has always been a true delight, but this time it really hit home. A collection of permanent ambassadors to the UN were also there representing many countries and it was an absolute honor to perform for them of course, but what was even more remarkable was watching THEM perform! Ambassadors of Denmark, Kingdom of Thailand, Serbia, and the representative of the Secretary General and Head of UN Office in Belgrade formed the UNRocks Music Group and performed a collection of songs for all in attendance. Their first song was John Lennon’s “Imagine” and we couldn’t help becoming emotional, removing ourselves from the entertainment and realizing how beautiful it was to see so many representatives from around the world gather together and sing such songs of peace. What a night of true inspiration.
