Another all-out concert is on its way!
This May, Richard Poon, who recently signed with Star Music, will have his 10th year anniversary concert on Resorts World Manila.
During his contract signing last Thursday, April 5, Richard gave us a sneak peak of his concert!
"Well, it's a celebration of 10 years so I'll be singing 'yung mga hits like "I'll Take Care of You," 'yung mga wedding songs na nakilala sa album... So big band. We'll be singing all the favorites ng nanay at tatay natin - 'yung mga "Portrait of my Love," "The Way You Look Tonight," "Memories of You," "Moon River," lahat ng classics na naalala mo. 'Yung mga "Copacabana," 'yung mga hindi mo naririnig masyado ngayon," he said.
While that is exciting enough as it is, he also mentioned that he will have ~special~ guests.
By special, we mean his fellow "Sessionistas" Kean Cipriano, Sitti Navarro, and Nyoy Volante. His close friends Erik Santos and Christian Bautista will also join Richard on stage.
To further build up the excitement, here comes a major explosion!
Richard, whose soothing voice we love, will show us his dance moves!
"Gusto kong sumayaw more," he said during the contract signing.
The singer also mentioned that he chose actor-dancer John Prats as his concert director.
"I picked him because he's a dancer. I picked him kasi sabi ko kay John [that] I wanna make a Bruno Mars fused with Michael Buble [concert]," he added.
Now, that is something we can't wait to see!
Another thing to be excited about is Richard's big band. The singer said that there will be a 21-piece band alongside him in his concert. While we hear classic songs from him all the time, he will be singing millennial hits on his concert such as Ex-Battalion's "Hayaan Mo Sila."
"So panggulat lang kasi you'll never expect me to sing that. So we'll be doing a classy version of [it]," he said.
Wow! For sure, Richard's 10th year concert will be out of this world!
