A group of Utah and international musicians plan to join forces this weekend for a concert to benefit people fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The show is scheduled for Saturday, April 9 at the Experience Event Center, 1440N. Moon River Drive, Provo. The show starts at 6:30 p.m.

Among those featured are: Utah-based British-born singer Alex Boyé (who sang at a March 12 rally at the Utah State Capitol in support of Ukraine) ; Madilyn Paige, a Provo native who appeared on Season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice”; Jane Beeson, provo pop artist; singer Ryan Innes, a Brigham Young University alumnus who featured on “The Voice” in Season 4; Provo singer Aaliyah Rose, who appeared on season 12 of “The Voice”; and Christian singing group The Bonner Family.

Other artists to perform include The King Will Come, EJ Michels of Foreign Figures and Aaron Kellim.

The show’s producers say, on the event’s website, that “100% of your ticket goes to Nova Ukraine to buy immediate relief like food, medical and personal hygiene supplies, and of childcare” for those who fled the war in Ukraine.

Nova Ukraine is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in 2014. So far, their website says they have raised “over $14 million” in humanitarian aid for Ukraine. They also state that the donations result in “immediate relief”.

Tickets for the event are $25 for general admission. A “VIP Experience” costs $250 and an “Ultimate VIP Experience” costs $500. People can also donate to the event without buying a ticket.
