Her soulful cover of the classic song, Somewhere Over the Rainbow widened her appeal to mature audiences.
With his curly hair and cheeky personality, 15 year old Bastian Steel continues to wow fans as a singer, presenter and actor. Before embarking on a solo career, the multi-talented teen was a member of leading Indonesian boy band, Coboy Junior. Bastian has appeared at events across Asia and his fun singing style includes pop, hip hop and reggae.
Both artists will take to the stage for an uplifting concert that is expected to appeal to music lovers of ages. It will commence at 7pm with a succession of solo performances by Citra and Bastian. There will also be a heartfelt collaboration with children choir from Bali’s leading music school.
Tickets for this annual charity event are priced at just IDR 150,000 per person. All proceeds will be donated directly to UNICEF for a project that provides educational opportunities and vaccinates children across the Asia Pacific region.
