Legends: Richard Poon’s Unique Spin To Classics
Nothing is better than listening to Richard Poon’s Legends with his unique spin to classics, if you’ve been a big fan of the Philippines’ Big Band Crooner. Legends is his latest album featuring covers of legendary artists songs. It’s been common to cover great popular songs but Poon’s has terrific vocals that never fade and has arrangements reserved only for him. He is one of the few artists who proved that it can still be done today with acquired talent and identity.
He’s been candid in answering media queries in the press launch held at the classy Hotel Celeste in Makati. It has been a successful live music launch in Eastwood Mall Open Park held last 26 April 2013 which was attended by his real-life sweetheart Maricar Reyes, family, friends, the Universal Records executives and fans. He performed Love Boat, Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko and songs from the album like Crazy, Can’t Help Falling In Love, And I Love Her, Ready To Take A Chance Again, Evergreen and the rendition of a Lionel Richie classic and his first single Truly. You can also vote for Truly on MYX!
And as he returns to pop, Legends is his first project with new label Universal Records. In “Legends,” Richard breathes new life to classics by Lionel Richie (Truly), Whitney Houston (All At Once), Barbra Streisand (Evergreen), Madonna (Borderline), Barry Manilow (Ready To Take A Chance Again), among others. He is also collaborating with Diamond Asiansation Christian Bautista in the Michael Jackson hit The Girl Is Mine.
