Charity concert to benefit HIVAids affected children

Music has largely been used to celebrate or tackle love’s downside or to talk about different aspects of life. Esther Nabatanzi Ssemakula, an upcoming singer and lead vocalist of Ejazz Band, has chosen to use music to raise awareness about one of society’s pertinent concerns- HIVAids.

She is going to be live in a concert dubbed My Musical tales, from which she will raise money to help the Reach Out Mbuya Parish HIVAids initiative, a home for vulnerable children infected and affected by HIVAids.

“I felt there was need to help these children and also raise awareness to our community of how one can contract HIVAids. That is what my song, My Love Tales is about,” Nabatanzi, an upcoming artiste, explains, adding that she came up with the idea after visiting the Mbuya facility.

She will use the money raised to procure scholastic materials and pay school fees for the needy children. Ejazz Band comprises of 10 members and was formed one year ago. It has six songs to its name.

“Revellers should expect to be educated, inspired and entertained. It is going to be musical in the most appropriate way of communicating because it involves drama and music,” Nabatanzi added on what those attending the concert should expect.

Entrance fee is Shs50,000 for silver tickets Shs100,000 for VIP tickets. The gig kicks off at 7pm, at Theatre La Bonita, located along Colville Street, above Christ the King church.
