West End star Steve Balsamo announced for 100 Voices charity concert at Llanelli's Ffwrnes

West End star Steve Balsamo announced for 100 Voices charity concert at Llanelli's Ffwrnes

ONE of the West End's biggest male stars will be coming to Llanelli with plans revealed for a huge charity concert.
Following the success of last summer's 100 Voices charity variety night, the show will return next month with an even bigger bill of acts.
The show is the brainchild of Llanelli lad Dale Francis, a musical theatre enthusiast who has used his connections to help to raise cash for local charities.
Last year's show raised money for the Welsh Guards Benevolent Fund and Ty Bryngwyn Hospice.

The charities are close to the 28-year-old's heart as he lost his brother in the forces and his mum to cancer.
He hopes to up the charity effort this year to further boost local causes.

Mr Francis said: "It was going to be a one-off extravaganza last year, but with the success and the sum of money we raise for charity there was no reason we were going to let it go.
"From this year we are going to try to grow and grow and grow."

Taking place on August 29 and 30 Llanelli's Ffwrnes, the show will featuring everything from vocal talents to comedians and TV dance troupes to all round entertainers.
Swansea-born Steve Balsamo is one of the stars of the night.

He made his name in the theatres of the West End and is highly regarded for one of the best portrayals of Jesus in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar.
Mr Francis said: "Lloyd Webber himself even said he was one of the most talent guys he had worked with.

"Steve Balsamo has a massive following, and nobody can sing Gethsemane like him.
"I thought it would be nice, as there have been so many amateur productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, that people could come and meet him.

"I think he is the most talented male musical theatre star ever."

Other stars will include Britain's Got Talent dance acts Pre Skool and Nu Sxool.
There is also Karl Morgan from the band Who's Molly, who has just released a single about Swansea City and has been on tour with Steps.
But this is by no means the extent of the range of acts performing on the night.
Mr Francis said he was particularly pleased to have Denny Twp involved as compere for the show.
"He was the one that discovered me back in the pantomimes, so it's nice to be back working with Denny again," he said.
Tickets for the event are £15 and are available from the Ffwrnes box office, or from the 100 Voices website

"It's going to be a night of pure variety," Mr Francis added.
"There's something that is going to whet everyone's appetite."
