Must Go’s: Bringing ‘Unforgettable’ Hits To Life – Yannick Bovy celebrates 100 years of Nat King Cole

Dubbed Europe’s version of Michael Bublé, Yannick Bovy is set to grace the Malaysian stage yet again come 4th and 5th October 2019 at Istana Budaya, Kuala Lumpur. This is not his first time setting foot here, having had concerts and highlighting smaller events over the years.

The curry-loving jazz singer will be paying homage to the music of Nat King Cole this round. Growing up, Yannick Bovy used to be heavily influenced by his grandparents’ taste in music, which led to his love for Nat King Cole. In March 2019, the American Jazz Legend would have turned 100 years old and Bovy felt it was only natural to honour the founding father of silky ballads and catchy swing with fourteen covers, including ” The Soul of Nat King Cole ” – written by Will Tura in his album, Yannick Bovy Celebrates 100 Years of Nat King Cole.

Some of the tunes he’ll be performing both evenings will be from different times in Nat King Coles’ life, including “Unforgettable”, “L-O-V-E”, “Let There Be Love”, “Mona Lisa”, and “The Very Thought of You”. There were many things that captivated Bovy about his childhood idol, which he will embody during his world tour.

“His voice. His pronunciation. His warmth and depth. It was so easy to remember his lyrics and words, because you could understand him so well. The man’s voice really carries.”

“Fans can expect a very intimate concert with wonderful musicians I’ll be bringing along. The show has the purpose to honour Nat King Cole and his emotional songs. I hope to take everybody back to an era of romanticism for a few hours,” he adds.

According to Grace Lee, Managing Director of Milestone Production Sdn Bhd, “It’s great to see Jazz as such a prominent genre of music these days – from live jazz sessions to swing sessions. I believe that fans of all ages will come and be treated to a spectacular night with Yannick!

Fun Fact: Malaysians make up Yannick’s 2nd largest fanbase in the whole of South East Asia! We love ourselves some jazzy tunes and swinging dances!

Getting to know Yannick Bovy

Yannick started his musical quest in Belgium, his home. His debut album, ‘Better Man’ consists of 15 tracks. ‘Better Man’ can be described as a classy tribute to the Big Band, crooner and jazz traditions of yore, spiced with solid own work and surprising covers including absolute classics such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” (Sinatra), “My Cherie Amour” (Wonder) and “All My Loving” (Beatles). Yannick Bovy’s music can be heard in all corners of the world. Songs from his first two albums ‘Better Man’ and ‘All The Way’, just like ‘Theoretical Love’, ‘She’s Even More Beautiful’ and ‘Six’ soon found success in the German, Polish, Greek, and also Brazilian, Indonesian and Thai charts. He has been a supporting act for Lionel Richie, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, and has taken to the stage with Lisa Stansfield and Amy MacDonald among other greats. It was the Belgian music legend Wil Tura, who out of his great love for jazz and swing, presented Yannick with a number of songs with an international character that would form the main thread for ‘Love Swings’, his third album. His music career recorded a great success worldwide. 

In April 2019 Yannick Bovy released his album “Yannick Bovy celebrates Nat King Cole” as a tribute to Nat King Cole’s unparalleled repertoire. The album already got rave reviews from fans around the Globe and the singles ‘Let there be love’ and ‘Let’s face the music and dance’ can be heard on radio’s from Europe to Canada and the Far East at the moment.
