"Hitman: David Foster and Friends" Live in Manila!

Finally, David Foster is coming to Manila for the first time to stage a show called Hitman: David Foster and Friends set for October 23, 8 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum.

Fifteen-time Grammy winner, record producer, composer and also a singer, Foster helped propel Charice by producing Charice's eponymous debut album (with Pyramid as the hit carrier single) after he saw her on Ellen DeGeneres' show which was Charice�s first appearance on a US TV show. It was Foster who introduced Charice to Oprah Winfrey who promptly invited Charice to guest on her show and eventually became Charice�s manager.

Charice herself will perform with Foster at the Big Dome show, together with Natalie Cole, Peter Cetera, Ruben Studdard and the Canadian Tenors. The singers will interpret songs composed by David.

"I was just with Charice the other day and we were talking about how exciting the Philippines is. I'm looking forward to my first visit to the Philippines." said David.

If he had the time, Foster said he would like to see the house where Charice lived and grew up. He also wants to meet other Filipino talents whom he described as "something great."

Foster is the producer and composer of hits such as Chicago's Hard to Say I'm Sorry, Cetera's The Glory of Love, John Parr's Man in Motion, Toni Braxton's Unbreak My Heart, Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You, All-4-One's I Swear and Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me, plus those by Alice Cooper, Al Jarreau, Hall and Oates, Kenny Rogers, Kenny Loggins, Boz Scaggs and Olivia Newton-John.
