An upcoming concert in Camden aims to lift people's spirits but also raise awareness of two vital health issues.

The inaugural Gospel Soul Show will be held at the Camden Civic Centre on Friday, March 22 from 7pm.

Organiser Andre Daniels said people could expect a night of up tempo and positive music.

However, he said the event would also raise funds for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and ReachOut to help prevent youth suicide.

"These are two issues very close to my heart," the Raby resident said.

"My son Adam was diagnosed with a brain tumour, he had an operation and has been stable now for two years.

"A local choir member I met also committed suicide - he was just 20 years old.

"Our target is to raise at least $5000 on the night."

The Camden Gospel Soul Show will feature plenty of home-grown talent.

The Voice Australia 2016 winner, Catherine Field's Alfie Arcuri will headline the concert alongside special guests Lane Sinclair and Joseph Gatehau.

The show will also feature a 14-piece choir and band, made up mostly of ex-St Gregory's College and Mount Carmel Catholic College students.

Former Australian swimming star Sarah Ryan will emcee the show.

Daniels invited everyone to come along and support the event.

"It's not your usual concert, there will be plenty of uplifting songs," he said.

"It's also about getting people to talk openly. Because young people, in particular, don't talk [about issues]."

Tickets are cost $20 per person.
