Fourth edition of the Singapore International Jazz Festival promises to be largest edition so far
The Singapore International Jazz Festival (SING JAZZ) 2017 takes place from 31 March to 2 April and offer 30 hours of world class music from multiple award-winning artists such as Esperanza Spalding, Chaka Khan, Gilles Peterson and Ray Parker Jr., as well as local favourites Aaron James Lee and Ernesto Enriquez. World music icon Youssou N’dour will round off Saturday’s Main Stage programme.
A highlight is the two-time Grammy Award winner Corinne Bailey Rae who released her self-titled debut album in 2006 which charted at No. 1 in the UK and No. 4 in the US.
The album featured global hits Put Your Record On and Like A Star that launched Bailey Rae to global stardom. She won her first Grammy just a year later for her collaboration with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock on his album River: The Joni Letters.
Her stars continued to shine with a second Grammy win in 2011 for Best R&B Performance for Is This Love. In May that year, Bailey Rae returned with her third studio alum and first full-length set in 6 years, The Heart Speaks In Whispers, which debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s R&B chart. The album featured hits Been To The Moon, The Skies Will Break, and Green Aphrodisiac, and NPR named it one of their Favourite 30 Albums of the year.
With her latest album being described as being “in the elite category of transcendental genre-busters from Minnie Riperton to Erykah Badu… (with) big-sky songs that play as a continuation of the Prince-style revolution”, you won’t want to miss a single magical moment of Corinne Bailey Rae LIVE on Friday 31st March at #SingJazz2017!
