KUALA LUMPUR: She has been to 17 Il Divo concerts last year and still, has not had enough of the pop opera quartet. 

Curran Cheryl of England has been supporting Il Divo since she first saw them on “The Parkinson” show in September 2004. 

“I fell in love with their voices and their music. Of course, their looks are also part of it. But it was all because their music is so powerful and the four strong vocals just blend in perfectly,” she said when met at the Shangri-La Hotel yesterday, where she and two other friends Walton Hazel (also from England) and Sioe Lan Teng (from Holland) are staying. 

Cheryl said she supported Il Divo all throughout their world tour in Europe and America last year.

“This is my first time in Malaysia.”  

After Malaysia, Il Divo will be performing in Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai and South Korea. 

Tour mate Hazel, who has been to ten Il Divo concerts, said: “It is tiring but worth every penny. We spent a fortune on the trip and we used up all our annual leave just to do this. ” 

Indonesian-born Sioe, who migrated to Holland decades ago, said: “I have been to ten of their concerts all across Europe and America and I'm still loving it.”  

The three women, all in their 50s, met during one of the Il Divo concerts and have since kept in touch. 

Il Divo will be performing tomorrow at the Plenary Hall KL Convention Centre at 8pm. 

The Star is the official media, while CIMB bank is the title sponsor for the concert, and Shangri-La Hotel the official hotel.
