A strong line-up of up-and-coming and established acts are expected to perform at 'Night of the Stars' benefit concert, scheduled for the Kingston 10 Sports Bar & Grill on Hillcrest Avenue in St Andrew tonight.

Promoted by Junior Chamber International, (JCI) part proceeds from the event will go towards the Rock Hall Basic School in rural St. Andrew.

“The aim of this event is to increase awareness of local business, tradition, culture; increasing community participation; introducing new and challenging ideas and expanding on cultural perspective while raising funds for reconstructing a perimeter fencing for the Rock Hall Basic School,” said Lamoy McLean, event promoter.

This will be the first event geared towards assisting the institution.

“This is the first staging and we plan to make it an annual event,” said McLean. “As a member of the Junior Chamber International, I thought it would be great to start charity at home. The JCI St Andrew is solely responsible for the Rock Hall Basic School, so I took the initiative to do this event, expose some young talent and help however I can, because they do need the assistance.”

Billed to perform are Anthony Cruz, Loyal Flames, Rebel Ianna, the Mighty Diamonds, Young Garvey, Magasha, Fyah Frenzi, Hardio, Jah Certain, Talee, Lejahni and Drastic. Music will be courtesy of DJ Blush.
