Natalie Imbruglia is set to perform at the second annual Reach Out to Asia (ROTA) benefit dinner being held on November 4, in Doha, Qatar’s capital city.

The Australian pop singer certainly won’t be the only celebrity attending as organizers for the event, which is being hosted at the city’s Ritz Carlton Hotel, are hoping for an even more glitzy and successful benefit than last year’s, when it drew in big names like Bill Clinton and Sir Richard Branson and was able to raise over $10 million for charitable causes in Asia.

ROTA’s philanthropic purpose is community development within Asia “with specific emphasis on promoting global responsibility for basic, quality primary education” as stated on the charity’s website.

ROTA has in the past rebuilt schools in a part of Kashmir devastated by the 2005 earthquake that hit Pakistan, and has sponsored a library and rebuilt schools in a part of Indonesia hit by the 2004 tsunami and a more recent earthquake.

CNN International news anchor Richard Quest is slated to act as emcee for the evening’s festivities.
