Event. The Circular Head Youth Leaders are turning fluoro in support of World Vision’s 40 Hour Famine and are welcoming a special guest to share in the fun.

Musician Lakyn Heperi will headline the ‘Fluoro for Famine’ event, helping to raise funds for those less fortunate around the world.

The Melbourne-based 23-year-old rose to fame after posting covers on Youtube with his channel receiving more than eight million views to date.

Now signed with Universal Music Australia, Heperi has been busy writing, recording and covering popular songs on his YouTube channel.

Heperi takes inspiration from various genres such as acoustic, folk, RnB, hip-hop and soul.

“I started with covers, just trying to put my own emotions into the songs,” he said. “I’ve been doing a lot of planning for the future lately. I’m hoping to release something later this year.”

Having only been to Tasmania once before Heperi is looking forward to the local youth event.

“I met so many nice people when I was in Tasmania last. I’m looking forward to just having a walk around and a coffee,” he said.

Teaming up with Circular Head Christian School students, CHYL are hosting the drug and alcohol-free youth party for ages 14 and up, encouraging the community to dress in neon clothing and support the school’s goal of raising $40,000 for the 40 Hour Famine, now in its 40th year.

Tickets for the event are $10, which can be purchased from Smithton High School and Circular Head Christian School front offices. All proceeds will be donated to World Vision’s 40 Hour Famine.
