BRINGING ‘UNFORGETTABLE’ HITS TO LIFE
Kuala Lumpur, 6th July 2019: Growing up, Yannick Bovy used to be heavily influenced by his grandparents’ taste in music, which led to his love for Nat King Cole. In March 2019, the American Jazz Legend would have turned 100 and Bovy felt it was only natural to honour the founding father of silky ballads and catchy swing with fourteen covers, including “The Soul of Nat King Cole” – written by Will Tura in his album, Yannick Bovy Celebrates 100 Years of Nat King Cole.
“I had done a few live recordings with the VRT Big Band and did some studio recordings of Nat King Cole songs and I felt like I could put together an album with a lot of variety,” he adds.
This young crooner, who is signed to Universal Music released his debut album “Better Man” in 2015 and has been making waves in the music industry ever since. In Southeast Asia, Bovy brings in the largest revenue from Indonesia, followed closely by Malaysia.
This 4 th and 5 th October, Bovy will be bringing Nat King Cole’s music to life in Istana Budaya, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is one of the stops for the Yannick Bovy Celebrates 100 Years of Nat King Cole album world tour. For two nights only, be treated to renditions of some of your favourites from all phases of Nat King Cole’s career including “Unforgettable”, “L-O-V-E”, “Let There Be Love”, “Mona Lisa” and “The Very Thought of You”.
There were many things that captivated Bovy about his childhood idol, which he will embody during his world tour. “His voice. His pronunciation. His warmth and depth. It was so easy to remember his lyrics and words, because you could understand him so well. The man’s voice really carries. Fans can expect a very intimate concert with wonderful musicians I’ll be bringing along. The show has the purpose to honour Nat King Cole and his emotional songs. I hope to take everybody back to an era of romanticism for a few hours,” he adds.
According to Grace Lee, Managing Director of Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, “It’s great to see Jazz as such a prominent genre of music these days – from live jazz sessions to swing sessions. I believe that fans of all ages will come and be treated to a spectacular night with Yannick!”
