Janice Vidal joins a host of international artistes for Ntv7’s Star Live Concert 2008.
Fans of Cantopop star Janice Vidal are in for a treat next month as the Hong Kong singer is set to party with local fans at Ntv7’s Star Live Concert 2008 barely half a year after her debut concert in Malaysia held at Stadium Merdeka in May.
“I miss my fans in Malaysia, and also the Seremban Siew Pau that fans bought for me,” she said in a recent phone interview from Hong Kong, adding that she would leave a message on her online forum for fans to support her at the concert.
Ntv7’s second annual star-studded year-end party is set to usher in the new year with performances by 13 local and international Chinese pop acts.
Held in conjunction with the Dongzhi or Winter Solstice Festival, the concert will be telecast live on Ntv7.
Apart from Vidal, the concert’s top draws are Hong Kong’s Wakin Chow and Vincy, Taiwan’s Harlem Yu, Jam Hsiao, Fan Wei Qi and Y2J, and Singapore’s JJ Lin. On the local front are Danny One, Cheng Lee, Ming, Manhand and Desiree Tan.
The pretty lass was excited to hear that Chow would be performing at the concert. “I’ve been a fan of his since my high school years. The first time I listened to him, I felt very touched. I really look forward to performing on the same stage as Chow. I’ve never met him before, so I’ll take this opportunity to ask for his autograph!”
Would she be singing with Chow? “I certainly hope to do so, although I’d be very satisfied if I could just shake his hand,” replied the 26-year-old bashfully.
Having just staged her Magic Live Concert in Hong Kong, the pop princess will be releasing her fourth album Serving You at the end of this month, two years after her third effort, Do U Know.
“I’ll be performing a new song Even If There Are No Fairy Tales in this World. Unlike other songs that I’m used to singing, this song is full of warmth and hope. Besides love songs, I hope to explore other genres. That’s why my new album will include more tunes with elements of hope and encouragement.”
Star Live Concert 2008, Ntv7’s second annual year-end concert, will be held on Dec 13, from 8.30pm to 11.30pm at Padang Timur Petaling Jaya (opposite Amcorp Mall). For concert details, visit ntv7.com.my.
The three-hour concert, to be telecast live, is organised by Galaxy with sponsorship by Sports Toto.
