The SOS Charity Fund, an initiative by DWR Distribution, hosted its bi-annual auction dinner during Mediatech Africa and the Lightpower Collection was delighted to donate a fabulous Freddie Mercury picture by Neal Preston. It raised 32,000 Rand (€ 2,050) for the charity!
Thank you so much DWR Distribution for creating this charity and showing one more time how important it is to support each other.
It’s all about the people!

Unique opportunity! The Lightpower Collection offers exclusively this fabulous picture of Chip Monck, taken by official Woodstock photographer Henry Diltz and signed by both!!

After the overwhelming success of the Neal Preston Exhibition at this year’s NAMM Show, Lightpower’s owner Ralph-Jörg Wezorke handed over a donation of $ 10,000 each to both charities. Behind the Scenes takes care of entertainment industry members in need, while the NAMM Foundation works to advance active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs.
At The NAMM Show, the Lightpower Collection will present coveted images from Preston’s extensive body of work, featuring more than 50 of his iconic pictures spanning legendary album covers, views behind the scenes, moments that made history – the essence of rock ’n’ roll and concert touring. Limited fine art prints are available and all sales will benefit Behind The Scenes and will also help fund The NAMM Foundation, which works to advance active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs.
The Lightpower Collection is proud to be able to donate another £10,000 to Backup – The Technical Entertainment Charity. Since we started to tour the Lightpower Collection in 2014 and donate all income from sales of fine art prints and merchandise to the charities Backup and Behind the Scenes Charity the amount of donation is now more than $110,000!
This would not be possible without the help of friends. In this case a special thank you goes to Ambersphere Solutions, who not only support the Lightpower Collection, but also donate a lot themselves and help to spread the word.
A big thank you also to our PLASA sponsors: PLASA Events, Knight of Illumination Awards, Astera, Ayrton, MA Lighting International, Robert Juliat, zactrack and Julie Harper PR & Marketing.
