Centrepoint Sessions presents 'An Audience with Laura Mvula', which will take place on Friday 29 August, just 100 tickets will be released for this exclusive show, priced at £100 each; with all funds raised being donated to Centrepoint. The hour long performance will include tracks from Laura's acclaimed debut album 'Sing to the Moon', which has been re-recorded with Dutch jazz orchestra The Metropole Orkest and is now on sale.

Centrepoint supports 8,400 homeless young people a year across London and the north of England. All of the money raised will ensure that homeless 16-25 year-olds not only have a safe place to stay, but receive the vital support in finding work and tackling health problems that they need to leave homelessness behind.  

Laura Mvula said: "I'm really glad that we're able to support Centrepoint by doing a show. It's such a great organisation and being able to use music to help get young homeless people off the streets is a huge privilege. Hopefully we raise lots of money!"

Jonathan Ward, Celebrity & Major Donor Manager at Centrepoint, said: "We are delighted that Laura has taken time out of her busy schedule to raise much needed funds for our work with homeless young people, and at the same time give her fans a unique opportunity to see her perform in such intimate surroundings"
