Guy Sebastian, Human Nature lead all-star cast for online Christmas concert

Australian music legends Guy Sebastian and Human Nature will lead a star-studded line-up for The Sebastian Foundation’s spectacular free online concert, Carols from Parramatta.

Hosted by Guy and his wife Jules on Friday 18 December from 7pm, the streamed festivities will feature fantastic performances by Chris Sebastian, Samantha Jade, Johnny Manuel, Sam Moran, Mark Vincent, Chynna Taylor and Mark Furze.

The yuletide sing-along is presented by The Sebastian Foundation in partnership with City of Parramatta Council and supported by Disney+.

“It’s incredible to see some of the finest voices in Australia bringing much-needed Christmas cheer into homes across the country,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Bob Dwyer said.

“Council is proud to support this wonderful cause, particularly at the end of such a difficult year.”

While the concert is free, viewers are encouraged to donate to The Sebastian Foundation, a charity founded by the Sebastians in 2013 to help those who have experienced domestic violence and mental health issues.

“We can’t wait to bring together some of the finest artists in Australia for a fun evening of carols while also raising money for programs that will really make a difference to the mental health of adolescents,” Guy Sebastian said.

“We hope that everyone can join us from their homes and give a few dollars to help someone who has been doing it particularly tough this year.”

The City of Parramatta has hosted The Sebastian Foundation’s annual Christmas carols in The Crescent at Parramatta Park since 2018 but the event has moved online this year due to COVID-19.
