During my work as an investigative journalist I have met many Solomons begging, prostituted or taking drugs to survive. But I could never bring the drama of Brazil's street children alive in the way this story does. SOLOMON'S SONG epitomizes life's lottery for thousands of children, and the miracles of fate and love that can never be explained, but only prove that there is no such thing as hopelessness. - Chris Rogers, BBC
