Akim Camara born 26 September [ citation needed ] in Berlin is a German violinist child prodigy who began playing at the age of two. Camara was born in Berlin to a Nigerian father and a German mother. Moved by his memory and natural "ear for music", Akim's teacher began instructing the toddler twice a week in 45 minute sessions. Rieu responded swiftly. He sent a camera crew to Berlin to film Akim on the violin. What he saw astounded him. He hastily took action and invited the parents and grandmother of the boy to his studio in Maastricht , Netherlands along with Akim. Three-year-old Akim's performance at the studio was apparently so impressive that it left all of the orchestra members in astonishment and disbelief. Within two weeks, in July , Akim was performing with Rieu in concert at Kerkrade's Parkstad Limburg Stadion filled to near max capacity with an audience of 18, people on a toddler-size violin and wearing a tiny custom-made concert tuxedo and dress shoes. After amusing the crowd with a "water trick" toddler Akim then performed Ferdinand Kuchler 's violin concertino in G, opus 11 followed by a brief encore performance.

For decades, America's most popular entertainers have thrilled audiences at Radio City Music Hall, which hosts one of the city's most beloved holiday traditions, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular featuring the Rockettes. The venue was conceived by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. It was initially planned as a movie theater that sold affordable tickets to all. The Rockettes were introduced as a mere minute aperitif before the feature film, however, as time went by, Radio City evolved into a venue for concerts, shows and various media events.
