Cantando Por Un Sueño

Pati plays handball with Maggie. I really appreciate how welcome she has made Mags feel on the team. Pati does not write about the sport here (although she could have bragged about the girls coming in second place in the Central American tournament!). Instead she decribes the t.v. show that everyone is watching. Here's the story:

As with many other countries in the world, El Salvador is a great supporter of the arts and a fanatic of music. There is a television show on at the present moment called "Cantando Por Un Sueño" or “Singing for a Dream.” This program consists of couples who sing together in order to achieve a dream. The dream has to be to help someone in need. The singers are raising money either to donate to some hospital or public help center, or to help a specific individual with the costs associated with a health problem that someone may have.

The couples are made up of a national celebrity who can sing, and a regular person who is the one with the "dream." The couples are always made up of a man and a woman. During the program, which is live every Sunday night at 7:00 pm, the couples have to sing two different songs and are evaluated by four judges who are professional singers.

At the end of every episode, there are always two couples who are sentenced, which means that in they are the ones with the lowest scores and that they are at risk of being kicked off of the program. The sentenced couples have to have a challenge or battle between each other on the next episode, and the fans can send text messages in order to save their favorite couple. At the end of the program, one couple will win and that couple will be able to make their dream come true of helping who ever they want to help.
