Maria Cordero Returns to Perform Two Charity Shows for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation

May 17, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Following the overwhelming popularity of the 2017 Frances Yip S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Concert, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation is excited to host another superstar from Asia to perform in Vancouver this summer.

Maria Cordero, affectionately known as “Fei Ma” by her fans and friends, will be performing on August 17 and 18, 2018, at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond for the 2018 Maria Cordero S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Concert. Her beautiful vocals and razor-sharp wit are sure to delight audiences in Vancouver.

All proceeds from the concert will go to support important social services and programs at S.U.C.C.E.S.S. that are unfunded or partially funded by the government, such as programs that serve youth, women, families and seniors. S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation is aiming to raise $150,000 from the two concerts. 

 

Maria Cordero began her singing career in 1985. Known for her powerful and versatile vocal style, Maria’s music transcends language and genre. In 1988, the song “Beam of Friendship” from her debut album won gold in Hong Kong’s prestigious “Top 10 Chinese Gold Songs Awards.” In October 2013, Maria, along with two other well-known singers Frances Yip and Elisa Chan, gave sold-out performances at the “Three Divas Concert” in Hong Kong.

In a pre-recorded interview, Maria expressed her eagerness to support S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation and her excitement in seeing her fans and friends in Vancouver. “It brings me joy every time I perform in this beautiful and culturally diverse city,” said Maria. “It also gives me pleasure to lend a helping hand to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation’s fundraising efforts.”

“Maria has always been very supportive of S.U.C.C.E.S.S.,” said Walter Soo, Jeffrey Chan and Cheryl Kwok, co-chairs of the 2018 Maria Cordero S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Charity Concert. “Her performance at the 2014 Bridge to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gala was marvellous and was the talk of the town here. We’re excited and thankful for her return to support S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation again.”
