Elva Hsiao and Chris Daughtry perform at ION Orchard's fifth anniversary celebrations

ION Orchard is celebrating their fifth anniversary this weekend.

It’s like watching a beloved child grow up – one moment, they are taking their first steps, and then they have suddenly bloomed into a thriving adult.

Yet, you can’t remember what was life like before them, because you know them so terrifically well.

And surely enough, ION Orchard is calling on a whopping celebration with "5 Years of Splendour", in the company of American rock sensation Chris Daughtry, Taiwanese pop star Elva Hsiao and the public.

At the atrium turn red carpet gala event and signature annual outdoor fashion concert held on 16 and 17 October respectively, the international entertainers will be performing their hit singles live.

Daughtry - 'Waiting for Superman'

Hsiao is taking the stage at the Level 1 atrium on 16 Oct, while Daughtry snags the show for 17 Oct at the outdoor public square ION². The runway show at the latter venue will feature the latest fashion pieces from customer favourites, like Bimba & Lola, BOSS, H&M and Zara.

A painting auction will also be held to raise funds for Community Chest. Over 300,000 beneficiaries are going to benefit from the proceeds, including children with special needs, youths-at-risk, the disabled, the elderly and families enduring hardships.

For an even more remarkable birthday bash, there will also be showcasing the work of local photographers through the opening exhibition 'Body of Work' in the ION Art Photography Series from 20 October to 2 November.

Elva Hsiao - 'Shut Up And Kiss Me'

Not only is this event of consideration to disadvantaged individuals and native artists, but ION Orchard also wishes to express their gratitude to the mall’s unwavering supporters.

“[This] is in line with ION Orchard’s vision to bring together fashion, music, entertainment and lifestyle elements. It is also our way of saying ‘thank you’ to all our shoppers, loyalty members, tenants and partners for their support over the last five years,” said Mr Chris Chong, Chief Executive Officer of Orchard Turn Developments Pte Ltd.
