LAMC Productions is excited to announce that global YouTube sensation, THE PIANO GUYS, will be returning to Singapore on 25 Sep (Tue), 8pm at The Star Theatre! They will be performing their trademark classical renditions of today’s pop hits.
“We are so happy to be coming back to Singapore. We love the country and its wonderful people. Cannot wait to see our very special fans at the Star Theater.”
The Piano Guys – Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson – became an online sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos, which have far surpassed 1 billion views and garnered 6 million subscribers on YouTube. They’ve made over 50 music videos since 2011, including their breakout hit, an innovative multi-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful”, a gorgeous reinvention of the hit song “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen and the amazing wedding song “A Thousand Years”. Christmas Together is the Utah-based classical-pop group’s seventh major label album on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks, following: Wonders, The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, A Family Christmas, The Piano Guys – Live! and Uncharted.
The group originated as a social media strategy for Anderson’s piano store, The Piano Guys, in St. George, Utah. Anderson was acquainted with Schmidt, a locally notable pianist who often came in to practice on the pianos when he was in town. In 2009, Anderson saw a music video that Schmidt had uploaded to YouTube, “Love Story Meets Viva la Vida” – a musical blend of the Taylor Swift country pop version and Coldplay’s Baroque pop song “Viva la Vida”, which Schmidt performed with Nelson on cello. That video logged more than one million hits. Anderson asked the musicians to do more videos that he would professionally film and upload to his store’s Facebook and YouTube pages to promote his store.
‘The Piano Guys’, ‘The Piano Guys 2’, ‘A Family Christmas’, ‘Wonders’, ‘Uncharted’, and ‘Christmas Together’, each reached number one on the Billboard Classical Albums and New Age Albums charts.
The Piano Guys’ story is a miracle. Their mission will always be to produce music videos that inspire, uplift, and make the world a better place. If we can make a positive impact in even one person’s life it has all been worth it to us.
