This years event is sure to be a showstopper with Gospo Collective as the powerhouse act! If you don’t know Charmaine Jones and the Gospo Collective, you are in for a treat! And if you do, then you know how amazing this event is going to be! Malibu Drive will start off the evening in style, before Gospo hit the stage.

ABOUT BREAKTHROUGH MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION
Breakthrough support ground breaking research that will help to transform the lives of those affected by mental health issues. Mental illness is going to be the biggest health challenge in our lifetime. One in five Australians has a diagnosed mental health condition, and more people between 15-44 years are dying from suicide than any other cause. This is not acceptable.
Their mission is to create a life free from mental illness.
Freedom to live your life without restriction.
Freedom to chase your dreams.
Freedom to leave your home, build relationships, to fall in love.
Freedom from the economic and social costs and impacts.
The Unley Road Association is proud to support Breakthrough Mental Health Foundation and encourage concert attendees to give a gold coin donation to the Foundation.
ABOUT GOSPO COLLECTIVE
African rhythm meets western harmony and worlds of hymns and hip-hop collide, while Australia’s leading choral ensemble displays the intricacy of the human voice like no other in the Southern Hemisphere. Collaborating with accomplished instrumentalists from around the nation and often a backing choir of sixty plus, this vocal powerhouse is a sonic and visual feast to inspire the mind and heart.
Director, Conductor and Arranger, Charmaine Jones is reputed for her vocal stylings, influenced by her musical journey through life which in turn creates a unique and powerful ‘choral experi
ence’. Charmaine spent over a decade teaching jazz voice at the Adelaide University Elder Conservatorium of Music where she completed her education under the tuition of Connaitre Miller (conductor of renowned Afro Blue, US). Over the years, Charmaine’s desire has grown steadily to musically excite and teach, not only those in such learning institutions but the general public. So in true roots style, she takes it to the ‘streets’ with the help of ‘The Collective’ for all to enjoy.
In 2019, Gospo Collective undertook a two week season of Jackson vs Jackson at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.. This soulfully sharp production saw more than 5,500 people through their Gluttony tent doors, once again winning a Weekly Award for Best Music and gaining a position as one of the 20 highest selling shows of the season.
