HÀ NỘI — Famous Vietnamese singers, including young ones, will be the guests of a new music series which will debut tonight.

Entitled Giao Lộ Thời Gian (Intersection of Time), the series will feature singers of different generations who will perform together with hits of their own.

A production of FPT Play – a TV app developed by FPT Telecom, one of the Việt Nam’s biggest internet service providers – the series is conducted by music producer-composer Dương Cầm.

According to the composer, who is the music director of the series, unlike previous music series, the new series will pair artists of different generations who have different performing styles on the same stage.

“Performed in the show, they need to get beyond the limit of their creativity to present their hits that will be remixed completely. In addition, they are required to present freshness and artistry when they duet the hits of their stage fellows,” Cầm said.  

The composer also said that every hit song will have a “rebirth” thanks to the “hit interchange” of the singers.

Alongside the performance, under the guidance of MC Liêu Hà Trinh, the guest singers will also reveal many interesting stories about their careers and life.

The FPT Play Content Director, Nguyễn Thu Hương, said that audience will have a chance to enjoy the old hits which were their favourite during their youth, but now have been refreshed by the top Vietnamese singers.

“I think the audience will be surprised when they listen to the trendy songs by young singers but now will be sung by veteran singers,” she said.

The series will include 12 shows which will be live-streamed on the second and the fourth Saturday every month.

The debut show tonight will feature the duo of young singer Đức Phúc, winner of The Voice of Vietnam in 2015, and singer Ưng Hoàng Phúc, who is most well-known with V-pop ballads during the 2000s.

Other duos will be invited to join the series include Quang Hà - Hà Nhi, and Khánh Ly - Hồng Nhung.

Diva Thanh Lam will also be among the guest artist of the show. However, the producer hasn’t revealed who will be paired with her yet.

“Whether old or young, regardless of different opinions and experiences, I think, all artists will sing with their own heart’s feelings," Hương said. — VNS
