In a show of glitz and glamour two international organizations joined to put together the first Annual Peace and Culture Gala in Los Angeles, California.  The two hosts were The Imperial Order of Culture and Peace (an international NGO) and St John of Kronstadt Foundation.  The goal of the event was to create a space where royalty would mesh with artisans, educators and people from different social groups. The event was a charitable project that is meant to benefit the world. It offered amazing performances and art displays of amazing artists. The Imperial Order of Culture and Peace is an international non-governmental organization recognized by multiple royal families. The mission of this chivalrous order was to unite royals and elites, spiritual leaders such as people in Culture, Arts, and Literature etc. from all countries and walks of life to appreciate cultural beauty and support humanitarian efforts for peace.

“The Gala was very successful.  It was attended mostly by Russians, Americans and Chinese.  It is definitely a global linked event on a very classic high level.  The event was covered by local US news, news outlets in Monaco, Belgium, Sweden, Peru, Brazil, Russia and hundreds of news channels In China.”

The Gala showcased some artwork that was also auctioned off, works from artists like Hovik, Tao Haixin and from French artist and writer Luidmila Menager (“Beauty and the Beast: The Truth Mirror”) that specific work was presented by Princess Karina Bagration.  The chair of the event was Sir Zanadu Zhou whose speech touched upon the need for unity and peace during the chaotic world we face every day. The proceeds from the auction benefited the St. John Kronstadt’s Home for the Elderly.

At the center of this amazing collaboration was the beautiful and talented Princess Long Long. Her ability to amaze a crowd is not withstanding. She offered her voice in song being joined by Bertie Higgins as they belted out his classic hit “Casa Blanca”. Long Long has been a staple at many of such events where crowds enjoy her operatic voice that leaves a lasting memory. She has performed at so many elite venues, like Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.  Her name is not only known by the Chinese community but on a world-wide scale from the Crown Prince of Italy to Ambassadors of many nations.  At the Gala Princess Long Long along with Bertie Higgins received Appreciation Awards for their outstanding contribution in Culture and Peace which was a great honor for both international artists.

Princess Long Long has been singing for many years and has established a name for herself among royalty like no other. She has managed to breach the gap between East and West by creating connections with other leaders of the world. Her goal is to spread unity and peace through music and good will. It is no wonder she is considered by some an Ambassador of World Peace.  In reality Long Long is a Global Ambassador of the United Nations World Tourism Organization Affiliated Blue Community.

“The World Imperial Order of Culture and Peace implies the trend of globalization, the leader’s contributions and indications to this world on a spiritual level.” Sir Zanadu  Zhou added, “As Chinese, Princess Long Long and I have the responsibility to promote the beautiful grand mystery Chinese culture and arts, to bridge the east and west on a highest level and to make this world more interesting and more diversified.”

Only recently she was at the center stage at the Tiffany fashion show in Manhattan during Fashion Week where she performed the difficult hit single “Unchained Melody”. Only last year she was awarded the Voice of Royal in Monaco where she was recognized by Royal society which promoted her to be invited to the Gala in LA.  After the event she was further invited to perform for a contingent of Russian nobilities at the Plaza Hotel in February of 2019 and at the famous City Summit and City Gala in Los Angeles with A-list Stars. Princess Long Long has come very far since her first show in Manhattan and she is not slowing down. If there is one Asian artist who can pull off multi-lingual performances it is her.
