Fever’s Candlelight concerts have been lighting up stunning Singapore venues with flickering candles and talented musicians since they first arrived. The series of concerts have grown in number and scale to also include Candlelight Jazz—a selection of candlelit concerts that just hit different.
Unlike the traditional Candlelight concerts that feature classically-trained musicians wowing audiences with their skilled musical precision, Candlelight Jazz performances feature jazz bands. Very good jazz bands that sweep you up in the magic of the illuminated evening and recreate the feel of a low-lit jazz club. It’s the best way you can experience the greatest hits of jazz greats and soul queens in Singapore.
Candlelight’s offering of jazz tribute concerts pays homage to artists like Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday among many more. Between them, they have sold millions of records over multiple decades, been inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame and won numerous other awards for their contribution to music.
For the upcoming candlelit performance by Vocalise Jazz featuring soul-singer Carol Gomez, it’s all about the women who broke down barriers, opened doors and paved the way for the sisters who followed. From Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday to Nina Simone and, much more recently, Amy Winehouse, they’re all being celebrated because the world is a much richer place thanks to their music and their voices.
Keep an eye on this space for more upcoming concerts celebrating some of the most iconic singer-songwriters and musicians as well as the genre of music that has had an undeniable effect on music this past century.
