Grammy-winning singer Kenneth Brian Edmonds, better known as Babyface, will perform at the 2022 HCMC International Music Festival in December.

The winner of 12 Grammy Awards will be the most significant of 250 national and international artists to perform at the festival.

Musician Huy Tuan, director of the festival, said he knew Babyface, also a producer and songwriter, after participating in music festivals in Europe. But he was surprised when he agreed to come to Vietnam as he is one of the big names in the international music industry.

“It’s not just a financial issue, it’s also his love for Vietnam,” Tuan said.

Tuan revealed that in addition to Babyface, many international artists from the United States, South Korea, United Kingdom, France, Spain and India will participate in the performance.

Vietnamese singers and bands performing at the festival will include Uyen Linh, Van Mai Huong, Vu Cat Tuong, Dong Nhi, Bich Phuong, Ngot and Unlimited… All singers will perform with live bands, without using tracks.

The 2022 HCMC International Music Festival will take place from December 8 to 11 at two locations: Nguyen Hue Walking Street (District 1); and Thu Thiem Bridge Park 2 (Thu Duc City).

Babyface wrote more than 26 R&B number one hits during his career. He won a record four Grammy Awards as Producer of the Year.
