HCM City (VNA) – Renowned young French singer Joyce Jonathan will perform in the concert “Joyce Jonathan Live Concert in Vietnam” next month in Ho Chi Minh City to raise funds for disadvantaged children.

The concert, hosted by non-governmental organisation Poussieres de Vie, will take place at Ben Thanh Theater on June 6 evening, said Patrick Desir, Director of the organisation at a press conference on May 29.
