A 10-time Grammy award-winning R&B star, Kenny “BABYFACE” Edmonds, will enchant Malaysia for the very first time, making Kuala Lumpur the first stop for his South East Asian tour. The “BABYFACE LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR” concert will be held at the Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Friday, 5th March 2010, at 8.30 pm.As a singer, producer, and songwriter, Babyface was an inescapable presence in virtually every major facet of pop music during the '90s. His own recordings helped rejuvenate the R&B tradition of the smooth, sensitive, urban crooner and made him a staple of urban contemporary radio.
In 1996, his guest-laden album, “The Day”, spawned another Top Ten Pop/R&B hit with his single “Every Time I Close My Eyes”, which solidified the singer’s crossover credentials by winning the Grammy for Record of the Year as producer of Eric Clapton's “Change the
World”.He has penned songs for many artistes including the world’s biggest-selling and most universally popular recording artists like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, En Vogue, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Boyz II Men, TLC, OutKast and Usher with album sales in excess of over 500 million units worldwide.
“BABYFACE LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR” is organized by Pineapple Concerts (M) Sdn Bhd. The Managing Director, Razman Razali, stated that despite the full-blown drama in 2009 that involved the temporary exclusion of the company from the local entertainment scene, Pineapple Concerts is ready to put that behind and kick-off 2010 with a new fresh start. Grateful that the company is now back on track, he stated that Pineapple Concerts’ objectives remain, which is to focus in bringing high quality international acts to Malaysia for the entertainment of local music fans, and also to realize the company’s vision of making Malaysia a premiere destination for live entertainment.
Babyface’s first ever visit to Malaysia is a long overdue event for Malaysians as he has many fans here. Playing with a live band and going through his repertoire of classic evergreen songs, this is a unique opportunity to witness one of R&B's true legend live in action.Tickets to the “BABYFACE LIVE IN KUALA LUMPUR” concert are available from 28 January 2010 through AXCESS Hotline: 03-77115000, online at www.axcess.com.my and all authorized AXCESS outlets”.
