Grammy Award–winning singer–songwriter Richard Marx will be performing again in Singapore this November after a three-year absence, and is set to set to sing his best-known tunes live for local fans. Tickets go on sale today at Sistic.
Since the height of his popularity in the 80s, Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide over the span of his 30-year career, and is the only male singer to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
The musical genius is responsible for classic hit songs including ‘Right Here Waiting,’ ‘Now and Forever,’ ‘Don’t Mean Nothing’ and ‘Endless Summer Nights.’ He also co-wrote ‘Dance With My Father’ with the late R&B singer Luther Vandross, and sang the duet ‘At The Beginning’ with Donna Lewis for the soundtrack of the 1997 animated film Anastasia.
Richard Marx released his eighth studio album last July. Titled Beautiful Goodbye, the album features a departure from his signature ballad style.
According to the singer, he was out to make a deliberately sexy album this time. “The songs on this record were influenced greatly by everyone, from Sade to Bebel Gilberto, to various EDM artists to even Chopin,” he said.
“I’m known for romantic music in the past, but this music I wrote is all more sensual and ethereal, and the lyrics are more adventurous than I’ve been willing to go in the past.”
Fans of Richard Marx won’t want to miss this chance to catch the ballad maestro live in concert. Who knows when he’ll come back for another show? You might just be stuck right here waiting.
This concert is presented by MediaCorp VizPro International.
