ZURICH, July 13, 2012 /CNW/ - American superstar will.i.am of the Black
Eyed Peas performed his hit songs at the annual EF Summeranza party
yesterday to a crowd of more than 4,000 EF language students. As the
party's headlining performer, he also congratulated the winners of the
EF Summer Dance competition, who had choreographed a dance routine to
his chart-topping single, "Nothing Really Matters".
Earlier this summer, "Nothing Really Matters" was named EF's official
Summer Song 2012 and students entered the Summer Dance competition for
the chance to meet will.i.am and perform at the event. The winning
team's choreography was voted on by people from around the world and
their dance moves were watched by over 5,500 people on http://www.ef.com/summerdance.

Will.i.am met the winning team Force Out, five friends from Russia,
before giving the private concert to EF students studying in the UK.
The exclusive concert took place at London's Kempton Park where
language students from around the world met for a full day of fun and
celebration. The event reached its peak when the entire crowd began
dancing in unison to "Nothing Really Matters".
"We can't believe we got to meet will.i.am and perform our dance in
front of this huge crowd," said Force Out, who had been preparing for
many weeks. "It was incredible to see so many people dancing along and
definitely something we will remember."
In addition to preparing students with top-rated language learning
courses, EF International Language Centers offer a full array of
activities and events, highlighted by the annual Summeranza megaparty.
"We are thrilled to have will.i.am here to perform the EF Summer Song in
front of our students since he's such an idol to many of them" said
Mauro Cuervo, President of EF Language Travel. "The Summeranza student
party is a great opportunity to show that language learning abroad goes
far beyond traditional classroom learning. Our students actually live
the language - and have the summer of their lives, too."
The excitement of this unforgettable experience remained on the glowing
faces of the students as they boarded buses back to their EF course
towns across the United Kingdom.
