After 4 months of waiting, the day is finally here. This morning, I’ve been listening to David Foster’s music. Feeling really excited. Tonight is the night.
With so many international artistes, Jackie Evancho, Ruben Studdard, Peter Cetera, Natalie Cole and Boyz II Men, the tickets for the concert are not cheap. It took me a while to decide if I should buy PS1 or PS2 tickets. But with 4 concerts and all the tickets that I bought in Apr 15, I chose PS2 instead. The seats were quite high up.
The opening song for the concert was Winter Games.
Unbelievable … I was actually listening to this piece of fantastic music live, watching David Foster and seeing his fingers playing the piano live. Not on TV, not on YouTube.
The first artist that sang was Jackie Evancho, the runner up of the 5th season of America’s Got Talent. She was 10 years old when I first watched her on the talent show.
She has grown up so much now. She’s 15 years old.
Yesterday, Jackie sang 3 songs. One of which was Music of the Night.
The second singer was Ruben Studdard, the American Idol Season Two winner. I’ve forgotten about him for awhile until I watched him singing again yesterday. The first song that he sang was I Swear.
Rubben also sang Home which was produced by David Foster for Michael Bubble, who wrote the song together with David Foster’s daughter.
Other than David Foster, I was really looking forward to listen to Peter Cetera, the Chicago singer-turned-solo artiste.
The funny thing he said when came out to stage was he saw Kenny Roger’s fried chicken in Malaysia. Then, David Foster mentioned he wrote “Hard to say I’m Sorry” for Kenny Roger but Kenny Roger rejected it and finally made popular by Chicago and Kenny Rogers sells fried chicken.
Peter Cetera sang Hard to say I’m Sorry, You’re the Inspiration and Glory of Love. Age is catching up and he couldn’t sing the high notes as well. I’m glad that I watched him performed now before he stop singing.
Natalie Cole … somehow she looked pretty frail on that night. When she sang Miss You Like Crazy, I was worried if she could pull through the chorus and high notes. Hope everything is ok with Natalie Cole.
Natalie Cole also sang Unbelievable, with her late father, Nat King Cole’s voice and video played on the screen.
The last song she sang was This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) which usually light up the room when she sings this song. It did on this concert night but not as much energy from Natalie.
The last artiste that performed was Boyz II Men, the reason most people went for the concert. The first song they sang was Water Runs Dry.
When the group sang I’ll Make Love to You, we just could not help but sang along. It’s such a lovely and nice song to sing along.
Really, really like Boyz II Men. The last song that they sang was End of the Road. The next time they are in town, I would like to go for their concert.
The show ended with all the musical guests reuniting onstage to perform The Beatles’ Hey Dude
David Foster took the opportunity to acknowledge a few Malaysian. One of which is Jimmy Choo who came to his concert and was sitting somewhere. His wife loves Jimmy Choo, for his shoes must be. David Foster also mentioned that he has recently became the ambassador for Air Asia.
For encore, David Foster played Love Theme from St Elmo’s Fire.
The concert ended at about 11.30pm. Wish I can watch the concert again. The following day concert is a private concert held in conjunction with Genting’s 50th anniversary
David Foster, THANK YOU for the beautiful music and songs that you composed.
