Videos: David Foster and Friends – Mandalay Bay 5/9/09

Charice

Teenage star Charice Pempengco was one of the many performers who appeared at a concert organized by David Foster on Saturday, May 9.

The 17-year-old joined Cher, Clay Aiken, Donny Osmond, Brian McKnight and Paul Anka at the David Foster & Friends concert at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas to raise money for the David Foster Foundation, an organization established by the legendary composer and music producer in 1986 to provide financial and emotional help to the families of children needing organ transplants.

During the show, Charice thanked Foster and Oprah Winfrey for their help in her career.

“I would like to mention these people who are very special in my life,“ she said. “First, he is my fan, my producer, my mentor...

Interview: David Foster betting on trust factor

David Foster

From Las Vegas Review Journal:

No Groban this time. No Bocelli or Buble either.

David Foster is the first to recognize last year’s “David Foster & Friends” will be hard to top. That was a one-of-a-kind event, with nearly a dozen guest singers filmed for a DVD (“Hit Man”) and PBS pledge drives.

“In a perfect world, as the record business shrinks and I don’t want to retire, I think this might be a good Round Three for me to perform,” Foster says...

CONCERT REVIEW: Foster’s secrets on display

David Foster

From ReviewJournal.com:

His songs always seem to sprout wings and not only fly too close to the sun, but swallow it whole.
He favors singers with voices so big, it’s as if they were trying to smuggle a gospel choir in their lungs.
For David Foster, more is always more, and why nibble when you can gorge? If the guy was a chef, he’d weigh 500 pounds.
Instead, Foster’s a well-decorated songwriter and producer who has seemingly notched that number of hits over his 35-year career.

On Friday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, Foster revisited his extensive canon with more than a dozen singers whose careers he has helped shape, from neo-classical pop superstar Josh Groban to honey-voiced R&B crooner Brian McKnight to former Chicago frontman Peter Cetera.

At nearly four hours long, with a 15...
