President Halimah Yacob and her husband are going to be among the performers at the President’s Star Charity 2018 that will be telecast live this Sunday.

The President and her husband will take to the stage for a special closing performance, alongside The Purple Symphony, – Singapore’s first and largest all-inclusive orchestra that includes Singaporeans with and without special needs – visually-handicapped singer Wai Yee and singer Aisyah Aziz.

This is President Halimah’s second President’s Star Charity show and her third major charity event, after the annual President’s Challenge earlier this year.

President Halimah drew widespread flak at her inaugural President’s Challenge earlier this year, when Mediacorp cameras caught her yawning without making any attempt to conceal her yawn during a performance.

This year’s show, which is themed “Shine Together”, will see performances by local celebrities like Zoe Tay and international performers like Hong Kong’s Eason Chan, pre-teen trio sensation TNT Boys from the Philippines and Malaysian R&B singer Dayang.

In a press statement, President Halimah appealed:

“The annual President’s Star Charity has been a key component in rallying the community-at-large to do their part to help the less fortunate. This year, I am glad that the emphasis is on empowering them so that they can achieve independence.

“I encourage all Singaporeans to give generously, whether in terms of monetary contributions, time or expertise so that we can build an inclusive and caring society.”

The President’s Star Charity 2018 will be telecast live on Channel 5 and Toggle from 7.30pm on Sunday. The proceeds from the fundraising event will go to 59 charities.Follow us on Social Media
