Sri Lankan born Alston Koch was a special presenter amongst the glitterati and paparazzi in Hollywood for the announcement of the nominations for the Family Film Awards held at the Hilton Hotel at Universal City recently.
The legendary award winning Asian and Australian singer-songwriter, actor and now an executive film producer, carried the good wishes of the Asian and Australian community to the event and mentioned that the world, at a time of problems and despair, needs more films dedicated to the family which carry a message of unity, love and peace.
During the event, Alston Koch suddenly broke into song without any accompaniment to thunderous applause with the lyrics of the famous ground breaking song that won both Grammy and Academy awards for Bette Midler titled ‘The wind beneath my wings’.
The spectacular awards which will include the first ever ‘Olmpia Awards’ and organised by the World Film Institute will be held in Hollywood California.
It will feature awards for all sectors of the Arts. The Family Film Awards was originally presented by the late Dick Clark almost 20 years ago.
