The Grammy Award winning Flack, who is best known for a string of hits like Killing Me Softly With His Song, Set the Night to Music and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face will give a special live performance at the event which will honor four distinguished individuals – Professor Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the University of the Free State; Geoff Rothschild, Head of Government and International Affairs (and former chairman) of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange; Ndaba Ntsele, CEO of Pamodzi Investment Holdings; Teresa Clarke, Founder & CEO of Africa.com and co-founder of Student Sponsorship Program – who will be recognized for their work and achievements in championing education in South Africa.

James Urdang, Education Africa's executive director, said: "We are thrilled to have Roberta Flack perform at the awards dinner. I think it's amazing that such an outstanding performer is doing this pro bono for charity. Her performance on our stage will not only be exciting for the guests, but also for the Aqua Vista Marimba Band, which is made up of young students from a school in East London in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, who will also be performing at the event."

The awards are being hosted by Education Africa and Brand South Africa. Education Africa is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit tax exempt organization which is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa and has registered offices in the USA, Austria and the UK. Brand South Africa is a publicly funded trust with trustees appointed by South Africa's president. It works with partners in and out of government to see that South Africa's value proposition as a place to do business, invest in and visit – and from which to source products, ideas and inspiration – is fully appreciated.
