Shannon Noll will rock the stage during the first ever Vibe Alive in Moree on 19 and 20 May.
The Condobolin boy and runner-up of Australian Idol will hit town with Aboriginal hip hop artists, the Street Warriors to perform for two nights at the free community concert.
The trio will bring their energy and positive lifestyle messages – and big voices – as they cover the legendary anthem `Solid Rock’ and also pump out their latest release.
Executive Producer of Vibe Alive, Gavin Jones said the line-up was a coup for the event as he looks forward to the first Vibe Alive in Moree.
“Partnering with these guys to bring Moree a massive couple of days and give young people and the community the opportunity to meet Abie and Wok from Street Warriors and Shannon Noll is fantastic,” he said.
“They will be joined by role models, such as basketball legend Rohanee Cox, amazing dancer Albert David, comedian and artist Kevin Kropinyeri and Courtney Walter from So You Think You Can Dance?, so it will be a star-studded couple of days.
“During the day, registered school groups will compete in the creative learning activities, including goal-setting art workshops, Indigenous games, hip hop classes and numeracy and literacy workbooks, as well as the health and careers expos.
“Then as the suns sets, the main stage will light up for the massive community concerts on Wednesday and Thursday nights, featuring celebrities and the best of the best school groups from the singing and dancing workshops.”
Schools from across NSW and southern Queensland have registered to travel to Moree for the event and it is expected that all schools in Moree will participate in the festival, which promotes teamwork, creative learning and tolerance.
Participants will be inspired and challenged through sport, culture, singing, dancing, painting and hearing the life stories of positive role models and their messages of encouragement and strength.
