The talented singer is set to fulfil her dream and boost her career as she flies to America for the one-and-only, Olympic-style international competition for aspiring performers and entertainers.

Charity comes from a musical family, and she grew up singing in church with her dad, sister, and some of her nieces and nephews. She is also part of the Mon Che Vocal Quartet, performing the greatest hits from the 1940s to the 1950s.

All she has ever wanted in life is to sing and having been chosen to sing and represent Australia at the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) is a huge opportunity for her to make her dream a reality.

To help her compete in the WCOPA, Charity is currently raising funds through her GoFundMe page. Whilst the competition offers great opportunities for talented performers, it also comes with quite high costs. Charity will need financial support to help her get through the competition with ease.

Contestants from over 60 countries will be participating in the event. Before the start of the competition, all the contestants go through the Worldstars Bootcamp which offers a full day of comprehensive performing arts seminars and workshops delivered by top industry experts.

In 2017, prizes for the competition include a recording contract from Indasoul Entertainment and over half-million dollars in scholarships which includes $50,000.00 USD from CSM Music, $30,000.00 USD from the Millennium Dance Complex, $150,000.00 USD from the New York Film Academy, and $280,000.00 USD from the New York Conservatory for Film and Television.

Charity will be preparing two songs for the competition. As a tribute to the fact that she is representing Australia, one of her song choices is “Chains” by Tina Arena.
