Metal For Kids. United! All-Star Charity Jam is a musical format created in 2016 by Fabrizio Troiano with the aim of supporting and helping children in any state of need, through solidarity initiatives in which artists of the national and international Heavy Metal scene are called to arms.
Initially conceived as a production of charity events according to the format of the All-Star Jam Session, Metal For Kids United! has later developed as a real “independent” brand that carries out the commitment towards needy children also through various activities of awareness raising, communication and promotion, always using Heavy Metal as a healthy bearer of positive messages and solidarity.
METAL FOR KIDS UNITED! All-Star Charity Jam celebrates its 5th anniversary this year and what’s better than going for an all-star video jam tribute to the fathers of Heavy Metal. The final result is an extended version of Deep Purple’s classic ‘Burn’, featuring 25 metal artists from around the world. Here is the link for watching the video: https://youtu.be/lIfWn1C4jbw
Italian benefit format Metal For Kids United! will support once again Peter Pan Association, a voluntary association helping children with cancer and their families since 1994 through free hospitality in Rome during care treatments at Child Jesus Hospital.
“Due to sudden spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, we were forced to cancel the 2020 edition of the annual benefit show booked in Rome for April. During the spring lockdown period we have asked old and new friends of Metal For Kids United to jam together from their own place to celebrate our V Anniversary and keep the promise made to the association” says Fabrizio Troiano, president of the Cultural Association “Metal For Kids United” and organizer of the event.
