HÀ NỘI — Eleven young music talents will perform to raise funds for the Books For Children project tonight at the French Cultural Centre (L’Espace) in Hà Nội.
The children are participants of top television reality shows, such as Việt Nam Idol Kids, The Voice Kids, Người Hùng Tí Hon (Little Hero), Gương Mặt Thân Quen (Your Face Looks Familiar) and Bước Nhảy Hoàn Vũ (Dancing With The Star Kids).
The lineup of artists includes Jayden Trịnh, a Vietnamese-Singaporean kid who can play 14 musical instruments; Gia Khiêm with poignant vocals; Thiên Tùng, famous for his Michael Jackson dance cover; and the winners and runners-up from the shows.
The two-night concert titled Chuyến Đi (The Journey) will also see 30 young children from the Họa Mi Club performing.
"The Journey is inspired by the Books For Children project, which is being held for the past two years," Phan Tố Nga, the project’s communication officer, said.
"When we do charity projects in the northern and mountainous provinces, we experience severe weather conditions, which are the reasons for the interminable poverty. We understand that material support is very small and is not a stable source to help children escape hunger and poverty."
"We hope the young talent from popular television shows will meet each other in The Journey with one desire, which is to give poor children the opportunity to interact with their favourite singers."
All the proceeds will be used for organising a charity gala at the Xín Cái Junior High School in Mèo Vạc District in Hà Giang Province on January 15, aimed at encouraging and inspiring children to pursue their dreams.
The concert will kick off at 7.30pm tonight and tomorrow. Ticket prices are from VNĐ120,000 (US$5.3) to VNĐ500,000 ($25) and can be booked at www.bit.ly/vechuyendi. Please call 0934628739 for more information. — VNS
