SINGAPORE, Oct. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Extra·Ordinary People is proud to present Extra·Ordinary Stars, a star-studded fundraiser concert to empower and inspire youths with special needs and of less privileged background to dream. Featuring international artists A-Lin and Cyril Takayama, as well as China Taiwanese talents and our own local talents Benjamin Kheng, Glenn Yong, Wheel Smith, Zanna Phua, Adelyn Koh, John Chan, Isabelle Lim, Daniel Teo, Cantare Choir, performers from Singapore Raffles Music College, Extra·Ordinary People’s Extraordinary Light Orchestra and more, this inaugural 100-minute live performance will be held on 1 December 2023 at The Star Theatre.
- Extra·Ordinary Stars concert is conceptualised by the new Unleash Your Light Movement. Unleash Your Light is a new global movement that sees the importance of seeing the world from “Me” to “We”. The vision is that genuine human-to-human connection is the key foundation that needs to be in place before any personal and societal transformation can begin. When genuine human-to-human connection is present, it sets in motion the possibility of shattering limitations, igniting individual potential, and empowering everyone to shine.
“Individuals with special needs and their families almost never have the inspiration, space and opportunity to achieve independent living through their dreams. With Extra·Ordinary Stars, we hope that the special needs and underprivileged community become inspired to Dream and begin to share their inspiring stories and believe that nothing is impossible,” shared Mr Wee Boo Kuan, Co-Founder & Director of Extra·Ordinary People. “We believe in the transformative power of positivity. Our mission is to create opportunities for everyone to unleash their light and shine. And in that process touch someone’s life, as well as be a Hero to someone” .”
“At Singapore Raffles Music College, we are committed to creating an ecosystem of holistic learning support framework to maximise our students’ learning experience. We are proud to be the main partner of this concert, to let our students shine on stage, and share their inspirational stories,” said Mr Ryan Goh, Executive Director of Singapore Raffles Music College.
Ticket sales are now open, and ticket prices start from SGD$128 and up. The proceeds will be distributed equally amongst the three IPC charity organisations: Extra·Ordinary People, Happee Hearts Movement, and YMCA. There will be a 250% tax rebate with every ticket purchase.
