As every year, Anna was back on stage with her concert ‘Rock and Love for Your Soul’ for all of us rock (and of course funk, soul, r&b) music lovers. And, as one guest exhaled, we went down the memory lane… From lady Gaga to Stones, from Adele to Michael Jackson… The music made us move and shake our bodies to the groove (though some got a bit too excited!). Anna was supported by Pierre (Guitar), Edo (Guitar), Saga (Bass) and Saravanan (Drums). It was a night to be together and share with Anna the passion for music and dance!

Remove from me all obscurity which blinds me, and be always with me. I am in every thought, every aspiration which you turn towards me; for if you were not in my consciousness you would not be able to think of me. So you may be sure of my presence. I add my blessings.
