A passionate artist from Parkwood is calling on his community to support him in delivering a community concert in support of local talent.

Lionel Smith, a gospel singer from Parkers Walk, says the show titled I Can Change will feature up to 120 children from the underprivileged area.

“This show will be my message to all youth of Parkwood that they too can change. My songs I’m going to do with the children are called ‘I Can Change’ and ‘I Know Who I Am’.

“I would like to involve youth from other areas as well. If there are musicians, dancers and singers that want to be part of the concert, they are welcome to join no matter what age,” he says.

Smith has composed and recorded many of his own songs and works under the leadership of well-known music producer Damian Roman from Crybaby Entertainment.

He has performed at various events across the Cape Flats to date.

“We are still in the planning stages of the concert and call on locals to assist in making it a reality. We plan to host the event at the end of April. My focus is on our youth in order for them to think positively about the life we live.

“I can’t change our youth, but I can only sow in their lives. We need to do positive things in our community in order to help our youth to change,” he adds.
