Charity is at the heart of Usain Bolt's Star-Studded 9.58 Party!

Charity is at the heart of Usain Bolt's Star-Studded 9.58 Party!
The 9.58 SuperParty will feature an exceptional blend of music, top class achievers and performers combined with the spirit of giving, and uniquely packaged in an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime party experience.

Usain Bolt will invite his friends, family and fans to celebrate with him, in a uniquely Jamaican style, at the end of what was a most exhilarating international athletics season
In addition to celebrating , Usain who is a major giver to the United Way seeks to find ways to increase the contributions that he can make to charities which involve the development of youth and sports, as well as other needy projects. Proceeds from the SuperParty will be channeled through the United Way to be distributed among the projects with which he has aligned himself. A significant percentage of the proceeds will also go into assisting with the purchase of land for a health centre in his hometown of Sherwood Content, which now faces the possibility of losing its home.

In addition to the above, Usain takes his self-appointed task of promoting his home Jamaica to the world very seriously, and tries to do this in every way that he can. He will be inviting persons from all over the world to come and experience Jamaica and to get to know the country which he holds so dear. The event will be a party and concert featuring a range of high quality international acts as well as top Jamaican artistes. The night will feature pulsating reggae and dancehall music mixed in with hip hop and R & B. Stars who have been contacted for performance include Rhianna, Akon, Damian Marley, Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Etana, Tarrus Riley, Sly and Robbie and a host of other top class performers.

Highlights of the night will include an exchange of gifts between Usain and the Marley family as well as presentations of autographed gifts from Usain to invited celebrity guests. Usain himself will act as the main host of the event, randomly interacting with the audience on every level and injecting bits of his unique personality into the event.Usain will extend personal invitations to a special list of friends who he has met over the months of his athletic season, as well as to individuals who he has admired over the years and whose work and achievements he holds in very high regard. He hopes that based on their availability some of these persons will be able to attend the event and celebrate with him.

There is no doubt that the SuperParty will be magnificent and it is expected to attract a large audience from Jamaica and abroad.
