Kenny G – Heart & Soul Live Concert in Singapore

12 Nov

SYNOPSIS
Smooth jazz superstar – Kenny G! In a recording career that spans almost three decades and 23 albums, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has grafted elements of R&B, pop and Latin to a jazz foundation solidifying his reputation as the premiere artist in contemporary jazz. Since the early ‘80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart.

In many respects, where it took him was back to the beginning—the R&B of the early and mid 1970s that Kenny soaked up during his teen years at an inner-city Seattle high school where he mixed with a culturally diverse student body at a young age. Inspired by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Grover Washington, Jr., he was only 17 when he landed a gig with Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra at the Paramount Northwest Theatre (now the Paramount Theater) in 1973. After high school, the gigs with R&B and contemporary jazz artists like White and Jeff Lorber kept coming.

In 1982, he landed a record deal with Arista and launched a solo career with three critically acclaimed jazz albums—Kenny G (1982), G-Force (1983) and Gravity (1985). By the ‘90s, he was a multi-platinum seller and a frequent collaborator with some of the most iconic figures in American popular music, including Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole and Frank Sinatra. His subsequent studio albums, Silhouette (1988) and Breathless (1992), were hugely successful, the latter selling more than 12 million records in the U.S. alone and spawning the Grammy-winning single, “Forever in Love.”

Other career highlights include Miracles, a 1994 holiday album that took him to the top of the Billboard chart for the first time and has since become the best-selling holiday album of all time. His two holiday albums since then—Faith in 1999 and Wishes in 2002—have been similarly successful. At Last. The Duets Album, released in 2004, featured performances by Barbara Streisand, Burt Bacharach and LeAnn Rimes and many others.

In 2008 with the release of Rhythm and Romance, an album that united him with an all-star lineup of Latin musicians. Heart and Soul is the thirteenth studio album by Kenny G, which was released on June 29, 2010. It was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

1 Nov

SYNOPSIS
MARINA BAY SANDS SINGAPORE AND LIVE LIMITED are now proud to announce the long-awaited return of Elton John and his highly acclaimed band back to the Singapore Indoor Stadium, this November 20th, 2011.

It has been more than three years since Elton John and Band last visited Singapore. The “Rocket Man Tour” marked a very special night here, with The Singapore Indoor Stadium completely SOLD OUT and NINE THOUSAND fans up on their feet for an unforgettable, one-night-only, three-hour rock n’ roll extravaganza.

For Elton, putting together a “Greatest Hits Tour” has always been a great passion, not least because he’ll be joined on the road once again by his long-time band; Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson, Bob Birch, Kim Bullard and John Mahon, All dedicated and superbly talented musicians who have been playing alongside the piano man for many years.

Another highlight for 2011 are the four backing singers, which include the incredible Rose Stone (Sly And The Family Stone) together with Lisa Stone, Tata Vega and Jean Witherspoon. Their stunning harmonies will light up every corner of the stadium this November. This will be the first time that 2CELLOS will join the ensemble. The young Croatian duo, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser recently took YouTube by storm, quickly landing a recording deal with Sony Music.

Elton’s most recent studio album “The Union”, released by Universal Music in October 2010 was recorded with Elton’s long-time musical idol and worldrenowned pianist and songwriter, Leon Russell. “The Union” sees the duo and a glittering array of guests get back to the nitty-gritty of what they love about rock n’ roll. For Elton, working with Russell had been a life-long ambition. “When I started, he was my idol, mentor and everything I wanted to be as a song-writer.” says Elton. “In the last third of my life, I want to make records that I really want to make.”

To mark over forty years of chart topping success, Universal Music Singapore will be re-launching Elton’s entire music catalogue on CD and DVD, as well as digital downloads via online music stores.

Over his 40 year career, Elton John has won an impressive 5 Grammy Awards, he has sold over 250 million albums worldwide and continues to perform more than 100 shows a year, placing him squarely among the top 10 best-selling artists in music history. In addition to being the most successful rock pianist in the world, he oversees an artist-management company. And his AIDS foundation has raised more than US$220 million since 1992 and benefits programs in 55 countries. The sales of the song “Candle In The Wind” in 1997 raised over US$40 million for the charity, following the death of his friend Diana, Princess of Wales.

The next few months in Elton’s diary are packed and include sixteen nights performing his brand new show “Million Dollar Piano” at The Colosseum, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

“Saturday Night’s Alright (for Fighting)”, ”Rocket Man”, “Levon” and “Your Song” are just a handful of hits we can look forward to hearing here in Singapore this November – it’s sure to be another unforgettable night of music.
