MIAMI BEACH (AP) — Singer Phil Collins is expanding his philanthropic prowess to South Florida through his Little Dreams Foundation.

The British musician announced Wednesday in Miami Beach that his nonprofit will help South Florida children with artistic and athletic dreams to fulfill their potential.

Collins created the organization in 2000.

Children are selected based on talent, motivation and enthusiasm. Once accepted, they get to work with mentors, who have included Tina Turner, Natalie Cole and others.

Past Little Dreams children include figure skater Timonthee Manard and Joe Frank, who currently performs with Earth, Wind and Fire.

Collins got his start as the drummer for “Genesis” in the 1970s before becoming a solo star in the 1980s with hits such as “In the Air Tonight.”
