South African singing sensation Bianca Le Grange will be performing her “Live and Loud” concert directly from her lounge to yours this Saturday night.
Her online performance promises to be something spectacular. Remember Andrea Bocelli’s solo performance in the Duomo di Milano? Or Lady Gaga and friends in the One world: Together at Home concert, hosted by Global Citizen? #justsaying
Bianca will share her greatest hits – plus a few surprises! – starting at 7pm on Saturday, 2 May 2020.
Bianca, who has been entertaining South Africans as a musician and actress for coming up on 20 years, says live-streaming concerts is the only way artists get to perform during the lockdown.
“I am truly grateful for this opportunity,” she says. “The lockdown has been tough for performing artists. We have essentially lost our ability to entertain live audiences in the traditional way. But at least we have the benefit of technology to help us stay in touch.
“Being able to put on a concert online is hugely uplifting and energising for all involved. We hope to share our joy and energy with everyone who tunes in on Saturday.”
CN&CO Events is hosting the concert on our Virtual platform.
“It’s great to be able to support local artists through our events site,” says CN&CO Events’ Llewellyn du Plessis. “Entertainers can only earn money if they can perform, and unfortunately, during the lockdown, live events are prohibited. With the Virtual platform we can connect artists with their fans and we have the opportunity to give back to the industry.
“Each and every South African can support local entertainment by buying tickets to virtual concerts.”
Bianca recently wowed the EasyEquities team with an online concert at their virtual staff meeting, which was hosted by CN&CO Events.
What an epic @EasyEquities staff meeting. Amazing performance by @Biancalegrange to open and close the meet and with her youngest fan, mesmerized! pic.twitter.com/EUPI3zs2X0— Tristan Finnemore (@TristFinn) April 24, 2020
“Seeing how popular Bianca was at the EasyEquities meeting, we just had to provide a platform for her to perform to a wider audience. And that’s what this Saturday’s online concert is all about – bringing lekker, live, local music to anyone with an internet connection!”
The concert kicks off at 7pm on Saturday, 2 May 2020. Tickets cost just R50 and are available via the CN&CO Events website. Hope to “see” you there!
