(MUSIC) Richard Poon Scores Multi Platinum Awards. Releases The Crooners Songbook


Yesterday I got the chance to talk the sole, legitimate and unstoppable Big Band Crooner. It was a very light conversation about his album, his career and other stuff. While listening to him, I realized that he is really a down to earth person. I personally like artists who knows how to value mentors, or consider themselves as a student, for career and life is a learning process. Richard, is indeed one of the few.

Richard Poon changed the music landscape in the country with his own take of the standards, making more people, not just the older generation, appreciate the genre. No wonder he has been tagged as the multi-platinum crooner as his follow-up album “For You” also reached the platinum mark. His third record “I’ll Be Seeing You” also garnered success as it entered the charts of leading retail stores in the country.

Songs included in the album are: “All of Me”, “Moon River”, “Blue Moon”, “Portrait of My Love”, “Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko”, “The Last Time”, “Way Back Into Love”, “Panalangin”, “You and I”, “Complicated”, “Kahit Di Mo Napapansin”, “I’ll Take Care of You”, “Kumot at Unan”, “That’s All” and “Beautiful As You”.

It also features live versions of the songs “The Way You Look Tonight”, “L-O-V-E” and “All The Way” not found in his previous albums as well as his duets with Soul Siren Nina for “Fever” and Bossa Nova Princess Sitti for “My Eyes Adored You”.

At night, I listen to the CD and geesh, It has never been this good! This spectacular collection also comes with a bonus DVD featuring 8 of his music videos plus minus one of all tracks for an ultimate crooner experience.

Richard Poon was recently presented with a Double Platinum Award for his first album “I’ll Take Care of You” and Gold Record Award for his third album “I’ll Be Seeing You” at ASAP on ABS-CBN where he is currently a mainstay.

“The Crooner’s Songbook: the Best of Richard Poon” is out now in CD+DVD at leading record stores and online via www.mymusicstore.com.ph under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) and is presented in cooperation with Businessworld and HerWord.com.
