Grammy Award-winning producer, arranger, composer, and music expert David Foster is in the country to perform in his one night only concert.
David will be accompanied by singer Natalie Cole, American Idol season 2 winner Ruben Studdard, Boyz II Men, and Charice for a one-night concert at the Araneta Coliseum on August 18. Two Filipino singers – Mark Mabasa and Asia’s Got Talent finalist Gerphil Flores – will also perform at the concert.
“I love coming to the Philippines for many many reasons, the biggest reason is, of all the countries that I have ever been in the world, the Filipinos are the biggest music-lovers I’ve ever met,” he said during the press conference for Hitman: David Foster and Friends at the Marriott Hotel, Monday, August 17.
It was reported earlier that the award-winning music producer is in the works with his “Golden Girl”, Gerphil Geraldine Flores – the runner-up of the First Season of Asia’s Got Talent.
The concert, known by its popular name “David Foster and Friends”, will also be a reunion collaboration of Charice and the producer.
Charice’s career dwindled after she announced in public about her sexuality a couple of years ago. Many fans turned their back from the singer when she changed her appearance from feminine and beautiful girl into a thug-like boy.
