We all know Richard Poon performing Big Band tunes. And this year, Richard will serenade us with his pop music on his newest album Legends under Universal Records.
According to Richard Poon, “Not a lot of people know that I started in the music industry singing pop songs. I perfectly believe that now is the perfect time to go to my roots- pop. This time with my new label, Universal records.”
He adds that making this decision was not that easy, but believes that this project will further improve him as singer, performer.
Richard adds that he welcomes the challenge with open arms, and he hopes that people will continue supporting him and his music.
Richard joins the elite roster of Universal Records artists – Gary Valenciano, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez, Noel Cabangon, Christian Bautista, Gloc-9, JayR, Sam Concepcion, Parokya Ni Edgar, Sponge Cola, Callalily, Kamikazee, among others.
