Residents of Maun last week braved the chill to watch, probably for the first and last time in their lives, American recording artist Joe Jonas performing live at a charity event last week. The old and young alike thronged the grand stand of Maun stadium to watch Joe Jonas performing for a charity event. His performance was part of Prince William’s visit and charity work in Botswana, which attracted a large size of the US and European media.
“I am so happy to be here. It is cold, but we are going to have fun”, said the 20 year old Joe as he got on stage. Joe Jonas is an American singer, musician, actor and dancer. He shares the lead singer role with his younger brother Nick, in pop rock band The Jonas Brothers, which also includes their brother Kevin. He currently stars as Joseph Lucas in the Disney Channel original series Jonas.
Joe later told the Sunday Standard he it was his first visit to Botswana.
“This is my first ever time in Africa”, he said.
Joe, who was also doing his charity work in the country also got the chance to meet Prince William.
The Prince was doing his charity work in Maun as part of the Coaching for Conservation initiative, a conservation project in Botswana that blends soccer skills with wildlife protection.
He has been in the country since last week as part of the charity tour.
“It is incredible what the Prince is doing here. He is a great guy and he makes a huge difference to these kids. Children will be able to respect each other through music and football”, said Joe Jonas.
After he performed on stage, Joe had the chance to chat with Prince William.
“We primarily talked about the event. He thanked me for coming here” he said.
The Jonas Change for the Children charity gives hope to children around the world.
