Germany - Lighting designer Manfred 'Vossi' Voss used 100 x Robe BMFL Spots to light the 2014 Ein Herz für Kinder (A Heart for Children) show, a high profile charity fund-raiser, produced by Schwartzkopff tv staged at the new and trendy Tempelhof airport, Berlin, and broadcast live on German national public services channel, ZDF.

Technical provider was the Berlin based PRO LIGHT Lichttechnik Vermietung GmbH. The BMFL Spot fixtures were supplied by NicLen.

Sixty of the BMFL Spots were used to light the audience and 40 were dotted around the stage - all hung on trusses in the roof. They were used throughout the show for a variety of tasks including creating general lighting ambience and scenes as well as spectacular effects for the cameras and the live audience.

The show featured special live performances from The Voice Kids, Norske Talenter star Angelina Jordan, award winning international singer / songwriter James Blunt, folk musician Andreas Gabalier, maverick German musician Peter Maffay and superstar Chris de Burgh, while the guests included a glittering array of A-list celebrities and VIPs from the worlds of business and politics plus social and community activists.

Frank Hofmann and Andreas Haslbeck operated the event's lighting using a GrandMA 1 console. The set was designed by Hassler Made GmbH and the programme directed by Ladislaus Kiraly.

The event raised over 16m Euros for the Ein Herz für Kinder organization. It was founded in 1978 by publisher Axel Spinger and the BILD newspaper, originally to promote traffic safety for children.
