Though the complete line-up of artist for the event has not been released yet, Charice will most likely perform with the Hitman himself, David Foster, The Canadian Tenors, and Babyface. This is based on the image header of this event page, which was tweeted last March 23 by @David Foster: “Join David Foster & Friends in the Napa Valley at Robert Mondavi Winery for an evening of music, wine and food. http://wbr.fm/eHB0bn”
The David and Friends Concert is part of the 6th Annual Festival del Sole. This summer festival is a celebration of music, wine, art and food in California’s famous Napa Valley. Rick Walker, a Grammy-award winning music producer, first started this in 2006. Previous concerts included performances from Chris Botti, Nikki Yanofsky, Robert Redford, and the Russian National Orchestra.
The concert will be held at the Robert Mondavi Winery, Highway 29, Oakville, California on July 16, 2011, Saturday at 7:00 p.m. General admission lawn seats are at $85 while reserved lawn seats are at $115. The Robert Mondavi Winery, for four decades, has served as venue for great performances from Tony Bennett, Dave Koz, and Ella Fitzgerald.
The proceeds of the concert will benefit children who need critical organ donations. On July 17, there will also be a gala dinner and auction to help raise funds for the David Foster Foundation.
