The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Music - – Gor­don Kho

MALAYSIAN singer-song­writer Shila Amzah, pop­u­larly known as “Asia’s Sweet­heart”, will soon light up the stage at Re­sorts World Gent­ing with her unique brand of mu­sic that has won her in­ter­na­tional fame across Asia.

The name of her con­cert also hap­pens to be the ti­tle of her lat­est al­bum and it is a be­fit­ting con­cept for her con­cert as it high­lights the mile­stones she has chalked up thus far in the world of mu­sic, from the time she first be­gan to sing pro­fes­sion­ally till now when her ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity will see her stag­ing her sec­ond con­cert in Malaysia.

Known for her soar­ing vo­cals, Shila has made quite a name for her­self in coun­tries such as China and Hong Kong.

Among the ac­co­lades that have con­firmed Shila’s suc­cess in the in­ter­na­tional Man­dopop mar­ket are Best Fe­male Singer at the 15th Global Chi­nese Mu­sic Awards, Fe­male Artist of the Year (Hong Kong and Tai­wan) at the 2015 Guangzhou Mu­sic Awards, and Best Fe­male Singer (Hong Kong and Tai­wan) at the 2016 Mu­sic Pioneer Awards.

Shila’s up­com­ing My Jour­ney Con­cert in Malaysia 2017, will be held at Arena of Stars on Aug 26 at 8.30pm.

Tick­ets are priced at RM108, RM138, RM188, RM248 and RM318. Gent­ing Re­wards Card mem­bers are en­ti­tled to a 10% dis­count when they pur­chase tick­ets by cash or credit card, and Gent­ing Points re­demp­tion.

For fans of Amer­i­can pop-rock band DNCE, make sure you keep Aug 8 free as the quar­tet will be bring­ing their brand of mu­sic to Malaysia.

The group, com­pris­ing front man Joe Jonas (for­merly from the group Jonas Brothers), gui­tarist JinJoo Lee, bassist/key­boardist Cole Whit­tle, and drum­mer Jack Law­less, was formed in 2015.

We were first in­tro­duced to its mu­sic with the dance smash Cake By The Ocean.

Its other dance-ready stand­outs like Tooth­brush and Body Moves bring the same com­bi­na­tion of youth­ful en­ergy, groov­ing bass, fea­tured in its epony­mous de­but al­bum.

DNCE’s show in Kuala Lumpur on Aug 8 will be held at 8pm at KL Live, Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail. Tick­ets, priced at RM288, RM388, RM538, are avail­able from www.myt­icket.asia.

Shila will be per­form­ing at Re­sorts World Gent­ing on Aug 26. — Hand­out
