In her very first commercial concert in Indonesia, our very own AsiaÆs Acoustic Sweetheart, Sabrina once again proved her popularity and charm in a concert simply titled "Sabrina Live in Malang!" held last May 18 at the Graha Cakrawala UM.
The show was produced by the Electrical Science students of Brawijaya University in Malang City, Indonesia. The said concert was the culminating event of the 2013 Essentials Electrical Science and Art Festival.
Flocked by 2,500 people, the concert that featured SabrinaÆs solo-acoustic performance showed her devoted talent in singing and playing guitar for more than an hour of performance rendering a total of fourteen songs, all from her albums and including two of her very own original compositions to the delight of the crowd.
Heavy rains did not dishearten the supporters as more people actually turned out than expected. The support and adulation of Malang were truly overwhelming. From the first song down to the encore, everyone was enjoying and singing along to SabrinaÆs acoustic rendition of popular hits.
"This is a truly wonderful experience, a genuine milestone in my life both as an artist and as a person," Sabrina said.
Her 4-day visit to Indonesia was capped by a 2 day promo in Jakarta for her albums ôI Love Acoustic 5ö and ôI Love Acoustic: Sweetheart Editionö. She performed "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" in Trans TV program called Indonesia Mencari Bakat, JakartaÆs popular talent search show during the showÆs all-star showcase featuring the past winners.
Her last day, May 20, was spent doing media interviews. She met and shared some quality time with her Universal Music Indonesia family and was surprised by a special award.
"Seeing in person the 10x platinum award at the UMG Indonesia office was undeniably a special treat that gave me goose bumps," Sabrina expressed.
"It was an amazing tour. YouÆll forget all the long travels, long lay over at the airport, traffic, lack of sleep and very tight flight schedules. Everything turned-out well and exceeded all expectations. IÆm so grateful for all the love and support everyone showed me and I thank God for all his abundant blessings," She added.
