THE seventh edition of ChildAid Asia Kuala Lumpur’s (CAAKL) concert is back to raise funds for underprivileged children while giving them an opportunity to showcase their talents.
Dubbed “Rojak 2.0 – Celebrating Diversity”, the talents featured were trained in dance, vocal and musical instruments, including keyboards, drums, bass and guitar through the “I CAAN” programme.
The annual fundraising concert will feature talented youths from Singapore, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia.
The concert will take place at Pentas 1, Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) and is supported by Budimas Charitable Foundation and Suntory Beverage & Food Asia Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
“All children deserve the best experiences and opportunities to succeed in life.
“Not all can excel academically but given the opportunity, some will find their place in the world of performing arts.
“Any form of art be it dance, music, singing or even acting can help build character and bring positivity,” said Budimas principal officer Anne Rajasaikaran.
CAAKL founder Ralph Lim said such events gave children a chance to develop talents that often go unnoticed due to their family background.
“Through this concert, we hope participants will learn to work together and benefit from the sense of togetherness and friendships that are forged in the process.”
He added that the I CAAN programme was for children interested in the performing arts but do not have the means and opportunity to pursue it.
“We must support the artistic spirit among children while giving a hand to the underprivileged,” said Suntory human resources director Jun Ogura.
There will be a performance on Aug 17 (6pm) and 18 (3pm). Tickets are available via klpac.org or pro ticket.com.my
