As if Ricky Martin was not enough, Life Ball organisers have announced that UK singer Leona Lewis will also be performing at the event.
Lewis, who rose to fame in 2006 when she won a UK TV song contest in 2006, will be joining European Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst and Christina Perri on stage at the Opening Show of the Life Ball in the Vienna City Hall square.
The singer will, together with Franca Sozzani, Chief Editor of the Vogue Italia, also present the "Life Ball Queen Award donated by WOLFORD" to the Life Ball guest with the most creative costume.
Ticket holders will also be treated to a live-gig of Leona's chart toppers including the international hit "Bleeding Love", amongst others. There are a few Life Ball VIP-Tickets left for those who don't want to miss this performance.
Taking place on May 31, 2014, the 22nd Life Ball is dedicating itself to the topic "The Garden of Earthly Delights" and aims to raise further funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS and to hoist a flag for living in solidarity – is also reflected in 2014’s slogan: "Love is a bloom growing anywhere".
As well as the performance from Leona Lewis and Ricky Martin, the Life Ball will also feature the world of male models with a host of Adonises, beguiling beaus, wild boys and sensual charmers, strutting their stuff in the first Male Fashion Show of the Life Ball, presented by L’Uomo Vogue.
