The 18th staging of Powerful Women & Men Perform for Charity Show is scheduled to take place at the National Indoor Sports Centre in St Andrew next Sunday.

The show begins at 6:00 pm.

According to founder of the annual charity event, Thyra Heaven, last year's show was one of the most memorable in recent times for various reasons. The show returned to the National Indoor Sports Centre, with one of the largest crowds in recent years; there was an increased number of the island's influencers at the highest levels of government, business, diplomatic corps and civil society on stage; a number of new corporations came on board as sponsors.

“The June 10 show promises to be even more exciting than last year. Loyal and first-time patrons can look forward to the inaugural appearances by many of Jamaica's influencers,” said Cordel Green, chairman of the Planning Committee of the Powerful Women & Men Perform for Charity Show.

About 50 of Jamaica's well-known leaders have confirmed that they will perform on the show. These include Juliet Holness, wife of the prime minister and MP for St Andrew East Rural; Marlene Malahoo Forte, Attorney General; broadcaster Emily Crooks-Shields; Norman Grant, president of JAS; Dr Michael Abraham, stage personality, obstetrician and gynaecologist; Carmen Rives Ruiz-Tapiador, deputy head of mission, Embassy of Spain; Ali MacNab, former national footballer; Cordel Green, executive director of Broadcasting Commission; Dr Nicholeen DeGrasse-Johnson, principal, Edna Manley College; Ingrid Christian-Baker, general manager, Jamaica Private Power Company; Stephen Shaw, communications manager, NWA; and Christopher Barnes - COO, RJR/Gleaner Communication Group.

One special item will return to the Powerful Women and Men stage: Blossom O'Meally-Nelson, will perform a comedic piece “Since Mi Did Gawn”.
