Music connoisseurs in Gauteng and Free State can look forward to a fun-filled and entertaining day tomorrow.

This will be when they come face to face with the spellbinding music of their idols, Womack and Womack.

The soulful couple, alongside their children's group the Womack Sisters, will perform at the Fezile Dabi HIV-AIDS and 16 Days Benefit Concert, at the Abrahamsrust Resort in Sasolburg.

The international stars will be sharing the stage with the country's best talent in jazz and Afro-pop.

Included in the bill are Tshepo Tshola, Ringo, Oliver Mtukudzi, Malaika, Mafikizolo, Lesego, Mina Nawe, Kwela Tebza, Peter Nthwana, Maru and Trio Plus.

Tshola, famously known as the Village Hope, will keep music lovers on their feet with his timeless hits.

Afro-pop groups such as Malaika, Mafikizolo, Mina Nawe and Maru will get them dancing too, while Zimbabwean international Oliver Mtukudzi won' t disappoint when he delivers his usual bold performance.

Mtukudzi is a music phenomenon and the energy he creates when he is on stage has endeared him to South Africans.

The festival will be used to create greater awareness of HIV-AIDS and the 16 Days of No Violence Against Women and Children campaign.

The festival kicks off with a gala dinner tonight at Emerald Casino in the Vaal.
