Stephanie Benson thrills guests at Holland-America Friendship Foundation dinner



stephanie bensonA lot of good feeling has been swelling up recently in United Kingdom-based Ghanaian singer, Stephanie Benson as she gets called to perform at high profile charity events across Europe. She was in Holland on April 15, where she was the toast of guests at a dinner to mark the 10th anniversary of the Holland-America Friendship Foundation (HAFF). The charity event was to raise funds for under-privileged Dutch children to go on scholarships to the United States. HAFF was established in 2003, for the purpose of further strengthening the friendly ties between the Netherlands and the United States of America through exchanges in the educational and cultural field. Stephanie sang from a repertoire that included jazz, blues and ballads and a couple of her songs to be released in Ghana sometime next month. Guests at the event, which was dubbed, “Night of the Stars”, included Princess Margaret of Netherlands and Lieutenant Governor of Michigan in the United States. “I have always had a soft spot for charity work and that is why I’m anxious to come home and engage in activities to help our own people,” Stephanie said in a chat with Daily Graphic after the Holland gig. She was billed to perform at another charity event last Friday at the Lighthouse Club in South East London. That event raises money annually for the homeless in UK. Meanwhile, work is progressing on her Benson Entertainment Production Institute on the Spintex Road in Accra. Facilities for the school would include a sound recording and television production studio for both training and commercial purposes]]>
