David Foster and Jackie Evancho

Robin Leach –

When hit-maker David Foster presents the second of his three monthly Mandalay Bay concerts Friday night, he’s going to introduce two unknown singers he believes will be America’s next superstars, just as he did when he ran a talent contest in Pennsylvania in 2008 and discovered tiny Jackie Evancho. She has become such a recording giant that she will co-star with him at his third concert here in December.

David and Charice


The ‘Hitman Return’ concert will be held in Mandalay Bay on October 15, 2010. It promises to be a memorable night filled with unforgettable musical numbers and entertainment that will make your Vegas trip even more meaningful. Aside from Charice and Ne-Yo, other David Foster friends who will grace the show include Seal, Martina McBride, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Kenny Loggins, Michael Bolton, Ruben Studdard, Earth, Wind & Fire plus some surprise guests.
According to David Foster, he will cheat a little with the Las Vegas show as he used up a lot of his catalogue for the first edition.

“For instance, this show will feature Dreamweaver, a song composed by Gary Wright, which is not in my catalogue,” said Foster. “I will definitely go deeper in earlier catalogues.”
