RICHARD POON: I'll Be Seeing You mall tour


I was at SM Megamall cinema 4 last Saturday, not for watching a movie but for covering an event. We have decided to watch harry Potter (finally found time) later but my wife didn't come until 6pm so I asked Jeman Villanueva to tag me in his next event. Sure enough, there's a major one about to unfold at the ATRIUM. No less than Richard Poon, the Big Band Crooner is on a concert tour and Jeman's orangemagazinetv.com/ is one of the media partners.

I was lucky to get up close to Richard Poon again. The first time I saw him sing was Christmas last year when he and Sam Milby had a concert here in Saint Monique Valais. I didn't have a good camera that time so I was frustrated for not getting decent photos of them. I am a big fan of Richard and the Sessionistas. I always watch them every Sunday in ASAP XV.

He currently touring malls in Metro Manila to promote his latest Album entitled I'll be Seeing You which features distinct rendition of the classic hits with I'll be Seeing You as the carrier single. Other songs included in the album are PANALANGIN, Fever (feat. Nina) , My Eyes Adored You (feat Sitti), Call Me and many more. Of coarse, it will not be complete without my favorite song --THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT.

I honestly love that song. And so when Ms Marianne of MCA Music Inc., the host that day mentioned of the game where one should sing a few line from any song included in the album, I immediately jumped on the stage. Hahaha. I felt numb but I don't know why I was in the mood to challenge myself that day. I sang good enough I guess. My wife and her sister arrived just in time to see me sing. As a bonus, I got a GC from HUSH PUPPIES. yihhh!!!!

The mall tour also features Asian Acoustic Sensation Sabrina as special guest. She sang a few songs from her album including her rendition of Baby originally sang by Justin Beiber as well as I wanna be a billionaire. I heard that her album "I Love Acoustic" has achieved the DOUBLE PLATINUM . Congratulations Sabrina!!!!

Richard Poon  is one of the best things that happened in the Philippine music industry as he tries to bridge the divide between old songs / classic song and its expected audience. Young people usually have the perception that anything classic is for the old generation and is therefore "baduy". The Big Band Crooner changed all that. Now, you see a lot of his followers are actually kids who are also hooked to his style of singing.

getting intimate with the young fans...


Album signing followed later and I observed that Richard Poon really loves getting up close and personal with his fans , especially with the young ones. I guess it really inspires him to know that people such age really love his songs. That's really heartwarming.

If you failed to watch his SM megamall tour last week, you can still catch him in the following schedules and venue.

December 18. 6PM. SM Fairview Atrium
January 9. 6PM. The Podium 2/F Lounge
January 15. 6PM Sm Mall of Asia Main Mall Atrium


The Mall tour is presented by HUSH PUPPIES. Media partner: http://www.orangemagazinetv.com/

Thanks to Ms Grace Foronda of MCA Music Inc. for inviting us to the event Jeman of orangemagazinetv for tagging me along, Marianne of MCA for being so nice and Sarah of Hush Puppies for not laughing at me when I was one of the first to jump on the stage during the game. hahaha
