Additional performances are also featured in Ms. Austin’s itinerary—including one with renowned singer and jazz guitarist

Patti Austin will appear as s special guest in George Benson’s Inspiration Tour on September 5, 2013 at the
Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. Ms. Austin will also hold a more intimate event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Ballroom at the Ortigas Center on September 7, with singing sensation Joe Pizzulo of Sergio Mendes’ Band providing the opening act. The dinner show is for the benefit of Boystown, a charitable institution dedicated to caring for homeless children.

Ms. Austin, the American R&B, pop and jazz artist behind such smash hits as “In My Life”, “All Behind Us Now”, “Say You Love Me” —all perennial favorites among locals — has performed in Manila many times before. She is very excited to come back to the country again and to entertain the Filipino audience.

This time around, Ms. Austin will be having as front act Joe Pizzulo who sang for popular Brazilian artist Sergio Mendes as lead singer in the 1980s. He is the voice behind the hit singles “Never Gonna Let You Go”, “What Do We Mean To Each Other”, and “I’m Never Gonna Give You Up” among many others.


George Benson is a ten-time Grammy Award-winning American artist. He began his professional career at twenty-one, as a jazz guitarist. Benson first came to prominence in the 1960s, playing soul jazz with Jack McDuff and others. He then launched a successful solo career, alternating between jazz, pop, R&B singing, and scat singing.

The Philippines has recently enjoyed hosting a number of international performers such as Jason Mraz also promoted by Ovation, and the concert held by Ms. Austin’s fellow Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame inductee, Steven Tyler. Mr. Tyler performed with his rock band, Aerosmith.
