Patti Austin Live in Manila and Davao (This September!)

July 2, 2013

Ms. Patti Austin. The talent behind hit songs like “In My Life”, “All Behind Us Now”, “Say You Love Me” will be back in Manila, but this time, she will be accompanied by Joe Pizzulo who sang for popular Brazilian artist Sergio Mendes as lead singer in the 1980s.

I am a kid of the 80’s and I have heard Patti Austin’s name and songs time and time again before they became classics. Her career started when she was only 4 years old and her impressive background includes 17 solo albums and a consistent mainstay in the Billboards Jazz Album charts. 
Joe on the other hand, is the voice behind the hit singles “Never Gonna Let You Go”,
“What Do We Mean To Each Other”, and “I’m Never Gonna Give You Up” among many others. 
Ms. Patty Austin is heading to Manila (and Davao) this September!
Mark the dates! Patti Austin will be a special guest to George Benson’s Inspiration Tour  at the world class Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila on September 5 and will hold a more intimate performance in Crowne Regency Hotel in Ortigas on September 7, 2012 with singing sensation Joe Pizzulo of Sergio Mendes’ Band providing the opening act. The dinner show is for the benefit of Boystown, a charitable institution dedicated to caring for homeless children. After this, Ms. Austin and Mr. Pizzulo will fly south to Davao City pn September 9 to perform at the SMX Convention Center.

Ovation Productions is the team behind this soulful concert – the same productions that brought Jason Mraz, and Aerosmith in Manila.
