PETALING JAYA: Despite her hectic schedule over the next six months, Indonesian singer Kris Dayanti has put her coming concert at the Genting Highlands in conjunction with National Day as her priority. 

“I feel honoured to be invited to perform at a public concert in conjunction with the National Day. I always love performing to a Malaysian audience,” she said. 

SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: Indonesian pop queen Kris will be performing at the First World Plaza in Genting Highlands on the eve of the National Day celebrations.

The Indonesian pop queen, who would perform at the First World Plaza in Genting Highlands on Aug 30, said she would be singing her hits as well as popular Malaysian songs. 

In a telephone interview at Wisma Genting recently, Kris said she had been kept busy with several projects including the final preparation of a book Kris Dayanti’s Lifestyle and a solo album, scheduled to be out in February. 

Next on line is the telemovie Doa & Anugerah with actor Anjasmara Praseteya and a movie, which will start production next year. 

“I am excited about the movie as it will be produced by veteran actress Christine Hakim. The offer came as a surprise especially when it comes from a producer with a big name in the industry,” said Kris. 

Commenting on the recent bombing at the JW Marriot Hotel in Jakarta, the 1993 Asia Bagus winner described the whole episode as a shocker. 

“I feel very sad and so embarrassed that this has happened again in Indonesia.  

“It is so heart wrenching to see the public who suffered. I am so ashamed that it happened as it would it reflect badly on Islam and Muslims in general. Islam does not teach us to do cruel and evil things. Islam is a peaceful religion,” said the singer.  

Her debut in the Malaysian music scene with Menghitung Hari, sold over 50,000 copies and earned a platinum award.
