Grace Community Services presents the ‘Ignite Love K-pop Charity Concert’ featuring the popular K-Pop group, 3rd Wave. To be held on 1st December, 2012 at Plaza Mayang, Petaling Jaya, Ignite Love is the first charity event in Malaysia which collaborates with K-Pop artistes from South Korea for a charitable cause. The concert is in aid of Birthright, a social work established by Grace Community Services to provide crucial help to pregnant teens and young, unwed mothers who have no other means of support.
Besides raising funds, the aim of the Ignite Love concert is to draw attention to the plight of young, unwed mothers, many of who have been known to resort to desperate measures like baby dumping and indiscriminate abortions, without timely intervention.

With the wide popularity of K-pop music in Malaysia and the issue of teen pregnancy being a foremost problem amongst today’s youths, this concert collaboration between 3rd Wave and Grace Community Services is a fitting platform to create greater awareness of the dire consequences resulting from this social malaise.
Officially registered under the Akta Pusat Jagaan 1993 as Pusat Jagaan Birthright (No: 001571), Birthright provides temporary shelter, medical aid, legal advice and counselling services to pregnant, unwed women in a caring and loving environment. With the belief that it is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth and the right for every child to be born, Birthright works closely with the Welfare Department to find suitable adoptive parents if the mother is unable to keep her child. To date, Birthright has successfully aided more than 160 unwed mothers, between the ages of 15-25 from various races and religious background.
In recent years, Korean Pop or K-Pop has become a musical phenomenon, fast gaining popularity in many parts of the world, including the USA. Founded by singer-songwriter, Johnny Lee, and also featuring K-Pop artistes, Brian Joo and Alexander Lee, 3rd Wave is riding on the crest of this phenomenon but with a distinct difference. 3rd Wave strives to go beyond the mere popular appeal of Kpop to use music as a platform to bring a positive influence to today’s youths. The group is powered by the desire to reach out across continents, ethnic boundaries and languages through music that carries a message of hope to this generation. The band has been making waves beyond South Korea, having performed in various other countries namely Taiwan, Japan and Thailand.
Catch 3rd Wave live at the Ignite Love K-pop Charity Concert on 1st December, 2012 at Grace Convention Centre, Mayang Plaza, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. There will be two sessions that day – the first concert will be at 4pm and the second, at 8pm.
