SOTA Dance graduate Adelene Stanley returned in the second run of award-winning dance musical, INALA! Part of the original cast in the sold-out run in London (2014), Adelene approached this year's production as part of the creative crew as well. She and the other dancers had the opportunity to develop ideas for choreography and add to the creative process.

The only Asian and Singaporean in the show, Adelene was excited to be back in Singapore in June to present this spectacular concert. She shared, "As an original cast member, I am thrilled to be returning for another run of the show, this time with the legendary Soweto Gospel Choir! It'll be around my 80th show since the start of INALA, I've had an incredible time on the last tour and I’m very excited that the show is coming to my hometown this time round. I’m looking forward to perform at the Marina Bay Sands and for the Singaporean audience to see it - it’s unlike anything that’s been done here before and I’m sure they will love this Grammy-nominated show filled with soulful music and dance."
