Kyo York, an American singer famous for his covers of popular Vietnamese songs, will organize a concert in Ho Chi Minh City to raise funds for disadvantaged children.
At the Wednesday concert, York will share the stage with many local singers and pay tribute to Trinh Cong Son (1939-2001), a famous Vietnamese composer, musician, songwriter and painter.
The American singer said the event aims to mark the 15th death anniversary of Son. The artist, famous for his deeply philosophical lyrics, died on April 1, 2001.
All the proceeds will go to Huong Duong Orphanage and charity fund Dau an yeu thuong (The hallmark of love) that supports poor children, York said.
The concert is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. on March 30 at Hotel Continental Saigon, 132 Dong Khoi Street in District 1.
Concert tickets, priced at VND500,000 (US$22) each, can be bought via mobile phone at 0903 808 518 and are available at 20/30 Ky Dong Street in District 3.
