ACEMA to hold LoveFest benefit concert for hurricane victims


LoveFest is a benefit concert organized by Arch City Entertainment Management Agency (ACEMA) to bring relief to hurricane victims in the Leeward Islands.

The concert will see a line-up of international, regional and local gospel artistes at Victoria Park, starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October, 7.

Images of island wide devastation by Hurricanes Irma and Maria fill the Internet, as residents of the Leeward Islands grapple with near total loss of property and personal belongings.

“Although St Vincent and the Grenadines has not been affected directly, we feel the pains of our fellow brothers and sisters, as these horrific pictures saturate the media. We therefore feel moved to respond to the needs of those affected across the Caribbean through this Hurricane Relief Concert,” lamented Hayden Billingy, one of the directors of ACEMA.

The LoveFest will feature international and regional artistes such as Rizon, Curtis Jordon and the D’Furnace from Trinidad and Tobago, Allison Norville from Barbados and Naycha K.I.D from Antigua. Local artistes include Nadine Howell, GB, EM16, Hayden Billingy and Torell Doroaz.

Three cans of food items or a Ziploc bag of toiletries (1 toothbrush, 1 toothpaste, 1 soap, 1 deodorant, 1 body cream, 1 rag, etc) will be accepted as admission to the concert.

All Vincentians are asked to support this love initiative geared at bringing relief to hurricane suffers. Persons who are not able to attend the concert are encouraged to leave food items, articles of clothing, blanket, etc at Aeropost in Kingstown or Georgetown.

Sponsors for this event include LIAT the Caribbean Airlines, Aeropost (SVG) Ltd, SVGHTA, Paradise Beach Hotel, SVGAMP, Dynamic Guys, National Lotteries Authority and Carnival Development Cooperation.
