In this letter of invitation, a musician is invited to perform. It is customary to expect to cover the expenses of any guest speaker or musician you invite, however, there are time when a group cannot possibly afford to cover such cost and the guest speaker or performer may still be willing to honour the invitation. If you have someone to invite, you can always explain you situation to them and who knows, your invited guest may feel passionate about your cause enough to foot his/her own bills.
Whatever the case, always remember to write formal letters on the organisation’s letter headed paper and sign at the end.

Mr. Frank Edward
Area 3, Garki Abuja
Dear Frank Edward
We are having our “Annual Christmas Carol of Nine Lessons” in the New Law Theater of University of Abuja Main Campus December 9-11. The theme of this year’s event is “Christ Is Come”. We are focusing on the birth of Christ and the lessons that came with his birth.
Would you be our guest artist? We are overwhelmed by the impact your music has made in the lives of everyone both young and old. Your performance will set the tone perfectly for our event. A 10 minute to 15 minute performance will be fine. We expect an attendance of over a thousand students.
Due to financial constraint, we will not be able to pay or cater for your expenses for performing at this event. We are hoping as a means of giving back to the society and mentoring and motivating aspiring young singers and other students will be a sufficient incentive for you to be with us.
I look forward to a favorable reply, and just as soon as I receive it. I will send you complete details. Our meeting place is New Law Theater just east of the university gate.
