American Idol alumni Chris Daughtry was in Singapore with his band recently to perform at Ion Orchard’s fifth anniversary fashion concert. The annual affair held outside the iconic mall has seen a stellar list of performers that include Carrie Underwood, David Cook and Boys Like Girls.
Chris Daughtry was last here in 2010, where he performed at the Formula One Singapore Music Party with his band, ‘Daughtry’. This time, with a smaller set up, they performed an acoustic set with only Chris Daughtry , keyboardist Elvio Fernandez and guitarist Brian Craddock making the trip here
Daughtry kicked off the intimate set with the title track to their latest album 'Baptized'. This was the first of three songs they played from the record- which included the catchy sing-along track 'Battleships' and their insanely popular single 'Waiting for Superman'. The rest of the set was made up of other fan favourites like 'Over You', 'Home' and 'It's not Over'. It was indeed a treat for new and older fans alike.
Despite a 20 minute rain delay, Daughtry delivered and gave a stellar performance throughout the night, proving why Chris remains to be one of the most successful alumni in American Idol history. All in all, it was a night to remember for all present. With great vocal ability and charisma to boot, it is without a doubt that Chris Daughtry will be around for many more years to come.
