During Susanna Barseghyan’s special concert dedicated to old women from different nursing homes at Hakob Paronyan State Musical Comedy Theater, Armenian singers performed songs dedicated to mothers with little singers taking their first steps in the music industry. The charity concert was organized by the “I’m By Your Side” non-governmental organization, which supports the elderly. All the songs are featured on an album, and proceeds from sales of the album will be used to support nursing homes in Armenia.
“We have been holding programs for nursing homes for the past four months. We get excited when we see the excitement of the elderly staying at nursing homes,” President of “I’m By Your Side” NGO Gaiane Poghosyan told NEWS.am STYLE.
The organizers say what led them to organize events for the elderly was the fact that there had not been such an initiative for the elderly in the past.
Many Armenian stars have joined this initiative, and the elderly feel very happy when they see the stars. Among the stars is actress Shushanna Tovmasyan, whom NEWS.am STYLE met during the concert.
“There have to be a lot of initiatives for the elderly. They are truly overlooked. Taking into consideration their age and the fact that old people are in need just like children, I joined the organizers and tried to make my contribution. I call on other celebrities to join this initiative because when old people see familiar faces on television, they have mixed emotions,” the actress admitted.
Board member of “I’m By Your Side” NGO Irina Tovmasyan states that what particularly inspires her is the fact that all the singers immediately accepted the invitation to perform at the charity concert.
“Susanna Barseghyan came up with the idea of the charity concert, and my colleagues and I helped her organize it. I was more than happy to organize this concert because this is not just Susanna’s concert. Proceeds from the sales of the album featuring the songs of the concert will go to the organization,” Irina stated.
