RICHARD POON Gives New Flavor To Old School Classics In His Brand New Album


Richard Poon is back with a new album where he gives new flavor to the classic hits of music icon Burt Bacharach!

Titled "The Crooner Sings Bacharach," the album contains 12 songs including "What The World Needs Now," "I Say A Little Prayer," "Close To You," "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," to name a few.

"I never imagined na ganoon kalakas ang Bacharach songs sa mga Pinoy," said Richard. "Usually yung market ko which are moms, they had a very nice response na 'Uy Bacharach! Favorite ko yan!'" he added.

Richard said that when he heard about these positive responses he got when he shared that he'll be doing an album from the hits of Bacharach, he got more open and excited doing it. "I think Bacharach songs are really part of a lot of people's lives especially mga 70's, 80's. A lot of the people that got married had Bacharach songs in their weddings. I think that's a big deal so naging excited ako."

The Crooner also revealed that he was very much hands-on with this album "People call me the OC boy. Nakikialam talaga ako sa arrangements, eh. Being OC (obsessive compulsive), I'm happy with the end product. Ako mismo, I like listening to it," Richard said.

"The Crooner Sings Bacharach" under Universal Records will be available at all leading record bars nationwide SOON!
