JAMAL ABDILLAH “AKUSTIKASIH” (ACOUSTIC LOVE) LIVE IN CONCERT
PRESS CONFERENCE, 4TH APRIL 2011
Jamiyah Singapore will be holding a charity event–a much awaited concert by Malaysia’s legendary singer, Jamal Abdillah on 24th September 2011. A singing sensation with powerful and unique vocals, Jamal Abdillah has magnanimously come forward to hold this concert in support of Jamiyah Singapore’s Education and Welfare Services.
Being in its 79th year of service to the community and nation, Jamiyah runs welfare homes such as Home for the Aged, Nursing Home and Children’s Home. It also focuses on education, running a number of such institutions as kindergarten, childcare centres, student service centre, student care centres and a business school. This Charity concert will help support Jamiyah’s Education and Welfare Services and the proceeds from this concert will be channeled to fund the operation of its services.
Speaking at a press concerence on 4th April 2011 to promote ‘Akustikasih’ Live in Concert to be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Jamal said that although he has sang in Singapore in the past, this would be his first major scale solo concert here. He shared that there have been several offers in the past for him to hold a concert in Singapore but the organizers were unable to meet his demands as an artist. Jamiyah Singapore however, was able to meet his terms and expectations. He shared that his experience in Singapore has been limited to singing on Television and a small presentation during the launch of his album just over 20 years ago. Now, with this charity event, fans will get to experience favourites like Kekasih Awal & Akhir, Mati Hidup Semula, Sendiri, Sepi Seorang Perindu and many more in an evening of Music, Song and Charity.
Tickets are priced at $150, $130, $90 and $50 (excl. Sistic fees) and will be available at all Sistics outlets from the 24th June 2011.
