In Case You Missed It (ICYMI), Khalid performed at KL Live yesterday on 4 Nov 2018 — forming just part of Urbanscapes 2018's line-up of hot acts. #TeamCLEO had worked together with Urbanscapes to give away tickets to very well-deserving readers and followers who were die-hard fans. (Psst — we hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did!)
Khalid is a talent and wunderkind who has take the music world by storm. The 20-year-old has already released two albums in two years and has since won seven awards. It's no wonder: with his smooth, buttery vocals (he's dubbed as a "baritenor" — a mix of baritone and tenor), catchy beats that become an earworm after just a listen, smooth moves and lyrics to speak to the spirited millennial. ("Young, Dumb and Broke"? "American Teen"? "8Teen"?! Just get out of our minds already.)
His show at KL Live on 4 November 2018 was a sold-out gig, a full-house and a night to remember. While fans are still reeling (and repeatedly playing "Eastside" on Spotify *cough* like us *cough*), here are five details that you need to know about Khalid's first performance in Kuala Lumpur.
2: Opening act and local singer alextbh brought the energy
Our very own talent AlexTBH opened the night and had the immense role of warming up the crowd before Khalid (which wasn’t so difficult since Alex is one of our hottest acts, and the crowd was definitely hyped up for the night ahead!).
Draped in a rainbow (yass!) flag, the local crooner (known for his dreamy vocals and soft, R&B-infused pop tunes) definitely brought the energy and the crowd sang along, especially going crazy for his amazing tune, Still Mine. (#TeamCLEO’s personal fave too!).
