Live: LaGracia - The Bello Bar, Portobello, 28th November

La Gracia Dublin

LaGracia - No One

Info: Soul/ R&B act LaGracia are releasing their single, 'Don’t You Ever Leave', to raise funds to financially support Cheryl Mulvey as she is treated for bowel cancer. 

The single will be released at a special event in Dublin’s Bello Bar on Saturday, 28th of November, featuring performances by LaGracia and a variety of special guests.

Joining LaGracia on the night are singers from Discovery Gospel Choir – Emma O' Reilly on keys and BVS, Esosa Ighodaro (Republic of Loose) and Kate Madoo on BVs, as well as Richard NG (Popgun Warfare) and James Steele on saxophone, and Graham Heaney (TĂșcan) on bass.

Mother of three, Cheryl was diagnosed with bowel cancer in March of this year, and in her words, "I never expected to hear the words, tumour and cancerous.
But there I was, head spinning, with all the emotions and feelings you might imagine; shock, fear, dread, guilt."

"When you're told you have cancer, you immediately think of your family, how you fear not being with them any more, getting to enjoy watching your kids grow and be there for them."

Cheryl’s cousin and LaGracia guitarist, Kevin decided that the best way he could support the family was to use his talents and work with the band to raise both vital funds and awareness of the financial impact a cancer diagnosis can have on a family. All sales of the single, and proceeds from the Bello Bar event, will go directly to supporting Cheryl and helping with the day-to-day costs of her treatment and recovery.

Tickets can be purchased at €8 on the door but are also available at a discounted price through LaGracia’s eventbrite page,
