VIVA Records held a successful Le Velvets’ TV and Media Conference yesterday (16 July 2012) at The Peninsula Manila (Makati). The all-male vocal group performed a powerful medley to open the conference, a mix of classical, jazz, folk and pop style.
Le Velvets is composed of tenor singers Tatsuhiko Saga, Shinichiro Hino, Takanori Sato, and baritones Hironobu Miyahara and Takuya Kurokawa. They were smart to answer media questions after the introduction of Robert Wada, a Japan-based S/L company producer, trainer and the man behind Le Velvets. Le Velvets loved Filipino hospitality, the people, the food and I’m suprised about them talking the “It’s more fun in the Philippines” tourism slogan. They graced the conference for another amazing performance, they sang the classic Filipino love song entitled “Dahil Sa Iyo,” a well-performed number I must say.
They’ve recorded OPM songs with the help of a Filipino vocal coach and through Viva Records’ recommendations they will mark their Philippine debut. Now promoting their self-titled album with 2 OPM classic covers, Nonoy Zuniga’s “Never Ever Say Goodbye,” and Sharon Cuneta’s “Sana’y Wala Ng Wakas,” released under VIVA Records.
1. Unchained Melody
2. Fly Me To The Moon
3. Nessun Dorma
4. O Sole Mio
6. It’s Only a Paper Moon
7. Moon River
9. Mas Quenada
10. Never Ever Say Goodbye
11. Sana’y Wala Ng Wakas
12. Mi Vida
Don’t miss Japanese CPOP (classical pop) sensation Le Velvets performing live in Manila for the “Philippines – Japan Friendship Month” celebration this July at SM prime malls; July 20 at The Block Atrium, SM North Edsa, July 21 at the SM Megamall Event Center and July 22 at SM Mall of Asia.
This crossover event is supported by media partners Businessworld, Herword.com, official music channel MYX and SM Department Store and Music and Video, with special thanks to The Peninsula hotel of Manila. Definitely a major musical and cross cultural event to watch out for this month of July.
