The vocalists made their triumphant debut in Bangkok in December 2010 and were also featured in many popular Thai Television Specials, including Star Stage and the star-studded Pattaya international Film Awards (the equivalent of the Asian Oscars) and headlined this year’s Songkran celebration at the Three Kings Monument in Chiang Mei, Northern Thailand . They will be heading back to Asia to continue their tour , where they will wow their fans with their mystical musical magic. On the 3rd June 2011 they will perform a special performance dedicated to the King Of Thailand’s 84th Birthday celebration. This is a huge honour for these proud young Thais!
These Thai prodigies are taking the pop-opera market by storm with their inspirational and impassioned recital of traditional opera and contemporary pop music.
VIVA! will perform a wonderful variety of eclectic pop and rock classics at the Chiang Mai Festival that includes such as Oceano, 21 Guns, Toreador, Prayer in the Night, You Raise Me Up, Unchained Melody, Libiamo, Adesso and Barcelona, to name a few.
