Awesome night at Caii-Michelle's Disaster Relief Concert for children affected by the Mexican earthquake last year. It was a beautiful fusion of New Zealand and Mexican culture. To help raise money Caii-Michelle also produced an album for the concert and $2 of every CD sold goes to TLF! Thank you thank you!
