Have you ever wondered how much time and effort goes into nurturing a differently abled person, so that they can enjoy some semblance of a normal and happy life? The answer: More than you can imagine, and most caregivers can’t do this alone. 

There are many ways we can help, and Extra·Ordinary Stars is one platform designed for the cause. The event is a unique fundraising concert happening on Dec. 1, 2023 at The Star Theatre, aiming to help special needs youths on their way towards independence.

Organized by an IPC charity called Extra·Ordinary People, this star-studded fundraiser is headlined by Taiwanese songstress A-Lin, Netflix-featured magician Cyril Takayama, and Singaporean celebrities like Benjamin Kheng and Glenn Yong. 

However, one might argue that the true stars of the show are the differently abled performers, who have each received specialized training in order to discover their talents, and who are on their way to being able to support themselves and chase their dreams.
