Jessie J surprises 10sq, a designated charity of Sands for Singapore and recipients of the Business Times Budding Artists Fund, by inviting them to sing on stage with her.
My fellow singers and I feel very privileged to be given this rare opportunity by Sands for Singapore to perform for Jessie J. We did not expect her to invite us on stage to perform with her, and it is definitely a dream come true! She is one of my idols and has inspired me to pursue my passion for singing. This experience is truly memorable and one that I will never forget
