I’ve ever had in my life as a musician” - Seal (2011)

To describe Night of the Proms? It’s complicated!

How to describe Night of the Proms to somebody who has never seen the show? Whether you’re a big fan, an occasional visitor or have never actually been to the show, it’s not an easy question to answer! However, we took the bold step and asked Joe Jackson, Natalie Imbruglia, Roger Hodgson and many other artists that have been on our stage to give it a shot. The result? It’s all in this video:

Our secret weapon

This year’s first soloists for Belgium and The Netherlands are singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw and ‘secret weapon’ Fernando Varela. Still in the blossom of his career, 38-year-old DeGraw  conquered many hearts with his music. After his studies at the Berklee School of Music in San Francisco, he got signed to Clive Davis’s J Record Label, which immediately launched his career, leading to smash hits such as ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’, ‘Chariot’, ‘Not Over You’. From the other side of the music spectrum we present you Fernando Varela, a young tenor from Puerto Rico, who was recently discovered by 16 time Grammy winner David Foster. Varela shared the stage with Neil Diamond, Kelly Clarkson and Lionel Richie, with a repertoire that stretches from Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’ to Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’. A real shooting star! Meet Fernando:

 

Coming up: the first Night of the Proms of 2015!
