The annual President’s Star Charity is back again with a star-studded lineup from overseas and local artists.
Unlike previous years, President's Star Charity 2020 will be broadcast from The Theatre at Mediacorp without a live audience, where only selected guests and performing artists will be in attendance.
Themed “Believe You Can” this year, Mediacorp’s flagship fundraiser will take place on 4 October, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. The show will be available for viewing across multiple platforms, Channel 5, meWATCH, and meWATCH Youtube.
Hosted by Diana Ser and Fauzie Laily, homegrown artists, Rahimah Rahim and Joanna Dong are slated to serve a medley of crowd-favourite classics, while Jarrell Huang and JJ Neo will be performing the live debut of the first-ever PSC theme song, ‘Believe’, which was specially penned by the Singaporean singer-songwriter duo for the show.
International stars with the likes of Brit Awards 2020 Best New Artist recipient Lewis Capaldi, and Indonesian pop songstress Rossa, are also scheduled to headline the evening as their performances are streamed from their respective home countries.
Guest-of-Honour President Halimah Yacob will be gracing the show by participating in tile painting alongside Mediacorp artistes and Muhammad Saifudeen Abdul Salim, a 23-year-old aspiring motivational speaker with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore). Another one of the many highlights includes Mediacorp veteran artist and local icon, Zoe Tay, who will share the stage with dancers with special needs from the Diverse Abilities Dance Collective to perform a power-packed dance number.
Audiences can donate to the fundraiser now by scanning the PayNow QR code via their bank applications at the website here, which will also be flashed during the show. Likewise, you may also donate through giving.sg/psc2020. All donation proceeds will go towards the 72 agencies supported by the President’s Challenge.
