SINGAPORE, March 29 (Bernama) — Malaysia’s YTL Corporation will treat Singaporeans to a free outdoor concert by world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on May 8 as a show of gratitude to the city-state for its successful investment here.
The YTL Concert of Celebration 2010 is part of a series of YTL concerts held since 1994 to give back to the local community that has shown support for the company, said YTL managing director Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh here today.
Speaking at a press conference at his Singapore office, Yeoh said it had been the tradition of the company to thank the host country that welcomed its major investments and proven successful by holding such a free and exclusive concert to the local community.
YTL has previously staged concerts by Russell Watson in Kuala Lumpur, the late Luciano Pavarotti in Pangkor Laut, and the Three Tenors, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Pavarotti, in Bath, United Kingdom, in 2003.
Saying the Singapore concert “is not a public relations gimmick” for the company, Yeoh said “there is no better way to thank God and the local community but through a performance by Andrea Bocelli”.( Delta mentioned after the cutCollapse )Source
