Their collaboration began in 2014, and Siti's prayers for another opportunity have been answered!
David Foster, a Grammy award-winning composer and producer, personally reached out to Datuk Siti for the two-day performance in Singapore and Malaysia. She told reporters tha she feels grateful and believes it's more meaningful when someone like Foster invites you to collaborate.
She attributes her introduction to Foster and her idol, Celine Dion, to the late composer Datuk Adnan Abu Hassan. Starting her vocal arts journey at 16, Datuk Siti recorded a cover of Foster's song "The Colour of Love" for her second album, which holds a special place in her heart.
The concert will be held at the Mega Star Arena in Kuala Lumpur, where Datuk Siti will perform a song composed by Foster along with her popular selections. While she may not be widely recognized internationally, Siti believes it's never too late to make her mark on the global stage.
Datuk Siti also emphasizes the unifying power of music, transcending backgrounds and bringing people together. The specific song she will perform is awaiting feedback from Foster's team.
In a gesture of kindness, half of the ticket sales revenue will be donated to those in need through the organization Prihatin. The tickets, ranging from RM288 to RM988, are available for purchase on the website www.myticket.asia.
This collaboration between Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and David Foster serves as an inspiration for dreamers, reminding us to persevere and believe in our dreams.
Her journey shows that with dedication and the right opportunities, dreams can turn into reality. May her story encourage us to pursue our passions and work hard, knowing that age or background should not limit our aspirations.
Wah, a dream come true! Congratulations Mak Iti!
