If you grew up in the 80s, you got to know Kenny G, the biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era and one of the best-selling artists of all time, with global sales totalling more than 75 million records.
This is the man who made playing a saxophone sexy and charmed many fans with his music and signature long, golden curls.
Who can forget his soulful classic, “The Moment”, often played at many wedding receptions and ceremonies:
Or this collaboration he did with Mandopop King, Andy Lau:
Or this love ballad with 80s R&B star, Toni Braxton:
Kenny G will be performing in Singapore on 8 Nov, 2018 for a solo concert, “One Night Only – Kenny G Live in Singapore”.
The saxophonist will be treating his ardent fans to a one-night only concert at The Star Theatre. The concert will feature his album, “The Brazilian Nights” which was released in early 2015. The album which helped Kenny G get on to the Billboard 200, at number 86, was inspired when he was touring and travelling in Brazil, especially in Rio de Janeiro. Whilst there, he fell in love with the bossa nova genre, the people in Brazil and the nights of dancing and singing. He decided, then, to include the bossa nova sounds into his new album. The album’s deluxe edition also contains four live versions of Kenny G’s biggest hits, such as “Forever in Love” and “Heart and Soul.”
The winner of several music awards including a Grammy for Best Instrumental Composition for “Forever in Love” and American Music Award for Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist, Kenny G is excited to be back, having held his last concert here in 2015. He is eager to share his love for bossa nova that has inspired him for a long while, with his Singapore fans at the exclusive one-night-only performance.
“I cannot wait to meet all my loyal fans in Singapore to give them a taste of what a romantic and exotic night in Brazil is like, through my music. It will be such a great reunion. I hope to be able to share my love for bossa nova with all my fans in Singapore,” said Kenny G.
With a career that spans over three decades, Kenny G is the most celebrated instrumental musician of the modern era with his signature smooth jazz. He was ranked the 25th best-selling artist in America by the Recording Industry Association of America with 48 million albums sold in the U.S. as of July 31, 2006.
