Lovers of 70s and 80s music—arguably the best decades for music—have the chance to catch in action three singers who epitomise the greatest of that era. The Peabo Bryson, Regina Belle, Deniece Williams Greatest Hits in Genting concert is a chance to relive the magic of sophisticated urban contemporary sounds that first emerged in the 80s.

Peabo Bryson, Regina Belle and Deniece Williams were among the American R&B and soul singers who led their generation in revolutionising the music scene with such hits as Tonight I Celebrate My Love and Let's Hear It for the Boys. The concert, to be held at the Arena of Stars on 17 December 2016, 8.30pm, will showcase such hits as these—no doubt reminding the audience that they are watching iconic stars, each with their own noteworthy backstory.

The smooth and silky voice of Peabo Bryson is sure to wow those who attend the concert. Best known for such love ballads as Beauty and the Beast and A Whole New World, Bryson is widely recognised as one of the premier male vocalists in contemporary music. The singer who reached his pinnacle with such songs as the Top 10 hits Can You Stop the Rain and Treat Her Like a Lady, made his professional debut at the age of 14, singing backup for Al Freeman and the Upsetters. It was in 1974 that he finally tasted big-time success after the release of his debut album Peabo that featured many songs composed by him.

Bryson enjoyed a long history with Regina Belle. The duo's Grammy Award winning duet, A Whole New World for Disney's 1992 animated feature, Aladdin, marked one of the highest points in Belle's career. The American singer-songwriter and actress also enjoyed big success for her singles, Baby Come to Me and Make It Like It Was. Best known for her sensuous, deep voice, Belle began her career in the mid-80s, releasing her debut album All By Myself in 1987. The album included her first hits, So Many Tears and Show Me the Way.

Then there's Deniece Williams, owner of a distinctive soprano voice who first ruled the airwaves in the 70s. At her peak, Williams spent a decade at the top of the soul charts, winning acclaim for both her four-octave range and delivery style. A fixture of urban and pop radio formats in the 80s, Williams is best known for such hits as Let's Hear it For the Boy, one of the tracks from the movie, Footloose.

The American singer-songwriter and record producer is also a Grammy Award winner, bagging the award for the song, I Surrender in 1984, and another one for I Believe in You in 1987.
