Tinchy Stryder will be performing a one-off show at The O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. On Thursday 4th November 2010, Tinchy will be joined on stage by an array of special guests and friends (names to be revealed at a later date). All proceeds from the tickets sales for the night will be donated to Alicia Keys’ charity, Keep a Child Alive (KCA).
Star In The Hood Tinchy Stryder was 2009’s biggest selling male solo artist in the UK. In the past eighteen months Tinchy Stryder has scored two no. 1 singles and a no. 2 album in addition to embarking on two nationwide sell-out headline tours, opening the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury 2010 and supporting both Akon and Rhianna on the UK legs of their recent Arena tours. Tinchy Stryder will be releasing through 4th & Broadway/ Island Records his third album, ‘Third Strike’, on November 8th this year, and the first single from this album, ‘In My System’, on August 9th.
Tinchy Stryder was inspired by KCA’s work after attending their recent Black Ball London 2010, hosted by the charity’s co-founder Alicia Keys: “The work that Alicia Keys and Keep a Child Alive do to help those suffering with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India is very inspiring. I hope that by donating the proceeds from this gig I can help further their work.”
Keep a Child Alive (KCA) is dedicated to providing lifesaving treatment, care and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. KCA currently funds 10 clinical and orphan care centers in India, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and South Africa. To date, Keep a Child Alive have helped over 250,000.
Tinchy Stryder’s one-off live date in aid of Keep a Child Alive will take place at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on Thursday November 4th 2010. Tickets are priced at £15.00 and are available from www.ticketweb.co.uk.
