Charity event MTV Staying Alive to hit Manchester

Mancunian Fashionista and singer Jsky has teamed up with skin, hair and body brand Kiehl’s to host MTV Staying Alive – a charity night for the charity Staying Alive.

Staying Alive is an amazing charity who do great work with HIV, with one of their main ambassadors being X-Factor Winner and global singing sensation, Leona Lewis, who speaks very passionately about the work they do. You can watch her video below to find out a little bit more.

MTV Staying Alive is happening on the 26th October, and will help to raise awareness and money for such a worthy charity. You can find out more about the amazing work that The Staying Alive foundation do by heading over to their website and taking some time to really digest the information on there and look at ways in which you can support the charity.

The MTV Staying Alive event will feature some incredible talents who will be performing on the night, and we have the low down on each act!

Tobi Sunmola – Originally born in Nigeria, and now living in Manchester, Tobi has been working extremely hard over the last few years to get his name out into the music industry and it certainly seems to have worked. Last year, Tobi played Radio One’s Big Weekend, appearing on the BBC Introducing Stage.

Jsky – Mancunian fashionista, singer and event organiser Jsky is not only hosting the event but will be performing himself! Recently being featured on BBC Introducing, and having an amazing response to his performance at his very own fashion night, Jsky’s performance is set to be breathtaking once again.

Kris Evans – Some of you might remember Kris from BGT Boyband, The Mend. But now Kris is going it alone and is taking the music industry by storm with his solo career. With the release of his latest single ‘Mine’, and an incredibly positive response from fans, Kris’ performance is certainly one which we can not wait to see.

Kiera Weathers – Kiera has recently hit 5 million streams on Spotify, which is astounding, and with new original music on the way, this X-Factor girl knows how to put on a show. She will be taking the stage at MTV Staying Alive to show everyone how talented she is.

Damon Hess – Damon is an incredible DJ and Producer, and certainly knows how to get people on their feet and enjoying their night.


MTV Staying Alive is set to take Manchester by storm, and raise crucially important awareness and money for the charity. Even if you aren’t going to this event, you can still get involved on social media by using #MTVxSAF or you can donate £5 by texting “KIEH99 £5” to 70070.
