MALAYSIAN and international artistes presented top notch performances in front of a big crowd at the Ivory CNY Charity Concert at Penang Times Square.
They serenaded the audience with hits from various languages and dialects, including Malay, English, Mandarin and Cantonese.
Passing pedestrians also halted in their tracks to watch the concert which started with the performers dishing out the Gong Xi Gong Xi and Coffee Song tracks from a newly released Chinese New Year album called ‘FEAT-TING room’.
It is an album by former 988 FM radio station DJ Luke Loke who rocked the stage with fellow Worldwide Platinum Records artistes Mickey, Satrina, Michelle and Max Ku.
The singers also endeared themselves to the crowd through a game of charades which saw the audience acting out English translated Chinese idioms, much to everyone’s laughter and enjoyment.
Every participant of the game took home a complimentary FEAT-TING room album, courtesy of Worldwide Platinum Records.
The crowd was held transfixed during a rendition of the sentimental ballad Ketakutanku penned by rising songstress Satrina.
Men On Heels and GoGoGo Girls also took centre stage and danced to the fast-paced music.
The night’s excitement increased even further when Canadian band Ovaload delivered multiple electrifying tunes with explosive energy.
From dedications ranging from oldies by Beyond to the latest hits by Taylor Swift, they hit the right notes with the crowd.
Throughout the performance, Ivorycares volunteers and performers also made the rounds with collection boxes for donations in aid of flood victims in the east coast.
The night culminated with a fire performance by Sarakasi, eliciting enthusiastic applause.
The concert was supported by the Penang Press Club, with Penang Times Square as the venue sponsor and The Star as the media partner.
