The event opened with a photo montage of the singer in the theme of ‘past, present, future’ followed by a performance of his hit songs including “Falling in Love,” “Happy Happy,” “Pinetree” and “Polaris.”
He gave his rendition of R&B singer Brian McKnight’s “One Last Cry” and Japanese artist Standooh’s song “TSUNAMI.”
