‘Charisma’ stands for Charismatic Persons with Special Needs and is a Charity Organisation created for one purpose: to unhide and recognize the special talents of persons with special needs and make them gain the confidence they need to share their abilities and talents, and stand as equal members of this society with the same oportunities and chances, recognizing at the same time their differentiation.
The inspiration for the creation of this charity was Nefeli, at the time a 14 year old extremely charismatic and talented young girl, with severe mental and physical disabilities, but with a very special talent in singing. Nefeli came back to life after a severe brain damage incidence at the age of 9, by music therapy but also by her enormous will to survive, just to sing.
The creation of the 'Charisma Charity' was born after ‘Nefeli’s Metamorphosis’ on stage, during a concert given to honor the great composer, poet and producer Stavros Sideras. The composer after hearing Nefeli singing, was so deeply impressed by her talent, beautiful voice and amazing musical abilities, but at the same time by her severe mental disabilities who entrusted the abilities of this young girl and offered to write some songs for Nefeli with the aim to participate at his concert and create her first CD.
Nefeli’s participation to this concert, was amazing to the surprise of all, as it gave the opportunity to all those that were present to see the transformation of this girl into a true artist with no boundaries or limitations despite her mental and physical disabilities. People applauded and cried throughout the performance. It was a very touching, moving and emotionally charged atmosphere.
