Petaling Jaya, 9 September 2015 – JOOX, the latest free music streaming app by Tencent, has recently broken new ground by taking on the role of co-organiser for a first-of-its-kind live showcase alongside the popular Neway Karaoke Box and the country’s sensational duo, Fuying & Sam (FS) to shine the spotlight on Malaysia’s vibrant musical talents. Throughout the unique collaboration with Neway and leaders in the music industry, JOOX will also provide a unique platform that will continue to provide support for local talents.
The showcase, being held at The Gardens Theatre on October 3rd, will mark the first time three key players in the Malaysian music industry have worked hand-in-hand to give Malaysia’s developing music industry the chance in the spotlight by not only raising awareness towards the talents of local artists and bands but also instilling in local listeners a sense of pride towards Malaysia’s talents.
As one of the co-organisers for the showcase, JOOX is committed to playing an active role to promote the works of local talents. During the showcase itself, some of Malaysia’s finest musical talents will be given the opportunity perform live on stage as part of the opening act for the duo FS and demonstrate their amazing talents! Going one step further, JOOX will also be creating a set of unique playlists that similarly feature local musicians so that fans can continue discovering a robust part of Malaysia’s culture wherever they are.
With its latest collaboration, JOOX is now positioning itself to become a new platform that helps connect artists and fans to each other in a meaningful and personal way. JOOX will be bringing fans closer to FS by giving them the full ‘FS” experience with exclusive access to unique content including behind-the-scenes interview footage and special versions of their hit songs! Thanks to JOOX’s unique interface, fans can even take their participation to the next level by voting on their favourite songs from a list of ten where the top two songs chosen will be performed by FS live at the showcase!
