Stage with Rick Springfield

Sophia Zalipsky with Rick Springfield

Film Story

Sophia’s determination to pursue a career in the entertainment industry took a different turn when she had an impromptu opportunity to stand on a stage in front of nearly 1,500 people at a Rick Springfield Concert in July 2011 (age 5) and again in December 2012 (age 7).  As part of Mr. Springfield’s routine, he selects children from the audience to share in his spotlight for a few moments and invites them to sing a verse from his famous song, “Don’t Talk to Strangers.”  After that experience watching: Sophia’s face on stage, the reaction to her from the audience and Sophia’s euphoric state afterwards, we decided to take the next step and help Sophia pursue her dream.
