A FANTASTIC aging singer, Phil Perry was successfully mastered the stage acts intimately and emotionally at Hall D1 JIExpo Kemayoran, Jakarta, during the annual BNI Java Jazz Festival 2020 music festival which was held during two his performances on Friday (28/2) and Sunday (1/3) night.
The soul and R&B The Montclairs frontman, real name Philip Eugene Perry, easily swept away viewers in a sea of nostalgia through popular songs such as Just My Imaginations (2006), The World is a Ghetto (2005) and One Heart One Love (1998) .
“Every time I come to Indonesia, I know that you will always welcome me warmly,” Perry said on the sidelines of his appearance. Wearing a nice complete white suit, Perry, who has turned 68, seems to be young again when he performs more energetic songs such as La La Means I Love You (2006) and Ride Like the Wind (2005).
A number of spectators, both young and elderly, were also seen standing enthusiastically, singing to the rhythm and singing of Perry. The man who is identical with his high-pitched voice then wraps his last appearance through ballad songs.
The two songs he sang were The Best of Me (2005) which was popularized by Olivia Newton-John and David Foster, and It Might be You (1982) from Stephen Bishop which was re-arranged. The song It Might Be You is able to hypnotize the audience to sing with it. When he finished his performance, Phil Perry told to audiences about a child who should be polite and respect to their parents, and begged if God would allow me to return to Indonesia. “I’ll be here again,” and he fade away.
