"Fishing has been our family history, my husband and brothers fish as well, and I know and understand the risks and dangers," she said.
"The Fishermen's Mission is a vital charity to the fishing community in Cornwall and I want to raise funds that will benefit fishing families here in the Duchy."
The event is set to take place at Mansion House, Bolitho School in Penzance and classical, opera and show tunes are all on the bill.
Julian Waring, superintendent at the charity branch, said he is looking forward to the event and was grateful to Hannah for her efforts.
He added: "She wants to do what she can - the best thing she can do is to utilise her talents. It's all come together quite nicely."
The concert goes ahead on Friday October 11 at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the Mission, W. Stevenson's Fishmongers, Newlyn Cheese and Charcuterie Shop and Morrab Studios in Penzance.
Entry is £7.50 per person and includes cheese, biscuits and a glass of wine.
