Lisa Punch

Punch will return to her native land for a performance at two concerts in Guyana on August 8th and 10th.

The songstress is among several artistes already confirmed for the Guyana Festival which said it welcomed Punch on board.

Punch was eliminated from ABC’s Rising Star on Sunday night during Week 7 of the series after her rendition of Alicia Keyes’ “This Girl is on Fire” failed to attract more than 59 percent of votes on the East Coast. The 21-year-old recently moved to Brooklyn from Guyana in hopes of a better life. She has held jobs as a broadcaster, deejay and actress.

Punch performed on TV in Guyana and Barbados and wrote music, too. Her nickname in Guyana is the “Knockout Punch,” and she’s passionate about music

Among the other artistes slated to perform  are Jumo “Rubber Waist” Primo, Melissa “Vanilla” Roberts, First Born, Big Red, Rajesh Dubraj, Alabama, and Kwasi Edmondson.

The Guyana Festival covers three days, and will feature our most celebrated legends in sports, culture, art, music, food, entertainment, and much more. Day One will feature a GDF air show and national concert. Day Two’s audience will experience the Night of the Legends and the thrilling Festival Cricket and Football matches; while Day Three will feature a National Cook Out with food from every culture, followed by the Generation Next Concert.
