Whitney set for charity show

Monday, February 18, 2008

Whitney Houston is to perform live in London at a charity event to raise funds for disabled children.

The I Will Always Love You singer will treat guests to a string of her hits at Caudwell Children's Legend Ball at Battersea Evolution on May 8.

The 44-year-old American soul diva will sing before a 2,000-strong audience which will include British entrepreneurs and celebrities.

Caudwell Children is a national charity based in Staffordshire, providing direct donations of treatments, therapies and specialist equipment throughout the country, and has so far donated over £5 million to more then 2,000 children with 160 medical conditions.

Last year £1.2 million was raised for the charity from the Bedrock Ball at the National History Museum, where Tina Turner sang before an audience which included Sir David Frost.

John Caudwell, founder of the charity, said: "We are thrilled to have an artist of Whitney's calibre to headline the event. Last year was a huge success and with Whitney's support, we are fully expecting this year's event to be bigger and better than ever!

"Moving to a bigger venue for this year's ball means more people can come and support the charity, raising vital funds to make a difference to the lives of disabled children in the UK."
