So much love filled the New Frontier Theater last February 15 as singer Rick Price held his first ever concert in the Philippines. Many from the crowd were couples on a post-valentine date, and a romantic one at that. Accompanied by a piano and a guitar, Rick Price sounded amazing as his music radiated in the theater.
Another moment fans looked forward to in the concert was his performance with Pinoy singers Jinky Vidal and Joey Generoso. The two owned the stage during their individual performances, but it was their duet with Rick Price that wowed the crowd.
Prior to the event, the Heaven Knows singer expressed how excited he was to share the stage with these two Filipino artists. That was surely felt on the concert night.
Before Jinky and Rick started performing, Rick complimented Jinky for being beautiful and amazing, and commended her strong voice. They performed Roberta Flack’s Where is the Love together, and totally nailed it.
When it was Joey’s turn to join the stage, anticipation was apparent on both faces. Rick started strumming the guitar, and Joey led the vocal. Every now and then, Rick would heartily say, “wow, what a beautiful voice!” They performed James Taylor’s You’ve Got a Friend. They were in perfect harmony, and the crowd absolutely enjoyed it.
Rick proposed to Joey that they have another duet soon, and Joey happily agreed. Before he could leave the stage, Rick Price even half-screamed, “this definitely won’t be the last!”
The concert lasted for two hours, ending with Rick’s solo performance of his hit song Heaven Knows. Rick Price Heaven Knows PH Tour was presented by Wilbros Live.
