Singapore’s biggest female entertainers will come together for Superwomen in Concert, a fundraising concert by AWARE on Friday, 10 April 2020 at
Esplanade Concert Hall.
AWARE is Singapore’s leading women’s rights and gender equality advocacy group. It works to identify and eliminate gender-based barriers through research, advocacy, education, training and support services.
Mandopop icon Stefanie Sun will headline the all-female, all-star show, alongside an array of local legends such as singers Rahimah Rahim and Joanna Dong, musical cabaret trio the Dim Sum Dollies and violinist Lynnette Seah.
Other performers include Tamil rapper Lady Kash, singer Aisyah Aziz, Narelle Kheng and Sandra Riley Tang (RRILEY) of pop band the Sam Willows, jazz vocalist Alemay Fernandez, singer-songwriter Inch Chua, stand-up comedian Sharul Channa and theatre actress Siti Khalijah Zainal.
The vibrant, diverse line-up will also feature some family pairings: ChildAid 2018 singer Heema Izzati Zainudin with her sister Maya and mother, Lazmin (formerly of local band Culture Vulture) and mother-daughter hip-hop dancing duo Sheena Seah and Jade Riccio. Rahimah Rahim will also perform a song with her 14-year-old granddaughter, Alyaa Qistina, marking Qistina’s first public performance.
Actress-presenter Nikki Muller and director Beatrice Chia-Richmond will be hosts for the night.
Supporting the female talent will be a 15-piece, all-male group from the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra, led by Music Director Julian Wong. Entertainer Pam Oei once again produces and directs this year’s Superwomen in Concert, as she did in 2010.
Every single woman I asked to perform at this concert said ‘yes’ immediately. I nearly fell off my chair when Stef Sun agreed. She said it was a cause she really believed in and would be happy to support AWARE and its work. It is a really powerful gesture: women coming together to help other women.
Superwomen in Concert is part of AWARE’s 35th anniversary celebration in 2020. Proceeds will benefit AWARE’s Women’s Helpline and Sexual Assault Care Centre services — integral parts of the NGO’s wide-reaching work towards gender equality.
This year’s concert comes 10 years after the first edition of Superwomen in Concert, held in 2010 to mark AWARE’s 25th birthday.
The very first Superwomen in Concert in 2010 was a smashing success — a fabulously entertaining, joy-filled night of community and camaraderie. I wasn’t sure that we could ever top that edition! However, this year’s show promises even more star power than before, towards our ever-more urgent mission. I cannot wait to share the experience with a new audience.
Tickets for Superwomen in Concert will be available to the public at two levels – Charity packages, priced at $438 and $488 (tax-deductible), with top-tier seating, a VIP after-party and other bonuses. These tickets are currently available at aware.org.sg/superwomen
