Southern Highlands singers Elizabeth Tondoa and Augustine Emil are calling on all fellow musicians from their region to come together to hold a concert in Port Moresby next week to raise funds for the disaster-struck areas.

The funds raised at the concert on March 10 will be passed on to the National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop as part of the people of NCD’s contribution to the earthquake affected areas.

Tondoa challenged artists from other provinces to join in the cause.

Making the appeal on EMTV News, she said: “The people with money, come with money at this time to support those people in pain, and those who have need.

“Those with clothes, come with clothes.

“Like myself, I am a musician and I don’t have that money. But I have the talent and I want to use that talent to help my people.”

Then she burst into tears.

So far, B-Rad from, B Rad studios has given his support to take part in the concert as well.
