A Ukrainian singer will perform at Catholic Church in Penzance this Saturday May 28th.
Anna Zoshchuk who fled her home city in Odesa only two weeks ago, is now living with a family in Truro Cornwall.
Zoshchuk aims to give an emotional performance introducing the audience to Ukrainian songs about life and love.
Over 14 million Ukrainians have fled their country from the Russian conflict.
When asked about what she feels leading up to the performance she said: "For me I'm trying to keep my emotions but I'm always crying because you know in our country now war and one part Kiev is destroyed and I feel so much sadness about this fact.
"I'm excited about this because it's another language, another country and another experience for me, it's next level in my life."
Ms Zoshchuk will perform alongside the Mousehole Male Voice Choir at the church from 19:30.
