I Love Richard Poon. Now Na. Forever Pa.

The first time I watched a Richard Poon concert was in 2011.  Kasabay nya that time ang ASAP Sessionistas na sina Nina, Aiza Seguerra, Sitti Navarro and Duncan Ramos.  Am not a Richard Poon fan but that concert really changed my perspective of The Crooner.  That time, he started off rather plain but began warming up the crowd with his charisma.  This guy really knows how to play his audience — me included.  I’m very difficult to please but boy-oh-boy, I became an instant fan.  Kaya super happy ako that I got another chance to watch him perform in Gensan.

Of course, it helped na pogi si Richard Poon.  But more than that  fact — he’s got the air pipes to brag about.  Swabe sa pandinig ang boses nya and he knows this kaya naman he has his audience in the palm of his hands — captivated by his charisma.  Kung iisipin he sings mostly songs for the oldies pero mapapansin mo na pati ang younger generation eh kilig na kilig pa rin sa kanya.  Keber nang awitin nya ang PUT YOUR HEAD ON MY SHOULDERS — you can still hear the shrieks of the younger set.  Ang gusto ko sa kanya is when he gels the beat of old songs with the latest hits.  (Think Baby by Justin Bieber to the tune of Mr. Lonely)  and he comes up with Novelty Songs (Think Jukebox Medley) that further cements his “relationship” with his fans.

 And Richard Poon is game.  He knows his power over his admirers but it somehow never affects his rapport with them.  You’ll never feel na plastikan lang ang ginagawa nya kasi pakiramdam mo na sincere talaga yung paglalambing nya and when he poses for pictures hindi mo mararamdaman na napipilitan sya.  In fact after the concert, nagulat ako that he stayed for almost an hour for autograph signing, picture-taking and exchanged banter with his fans.  That night I wanted to buy his 3rd CD kaso naubusan na.  Buti na lang, I had the opportunity to have a late night dinner with him and up close I saw that this guy is the REAL THING.  Tutuong tao.  Talentado.  Idol ko.  I love you Richard Poon.  Now na.  Forever pa.
