Yes, its’ the R&B, Soul legends The Mighty Manhattans with Gerald Alston and Regina Belle.
Last night at Montecasino-Teatro they brought tears to fans (young and old), who packed the sold out arena only to be serenaded by these legends. Oh, what a night…
With Regina as an opening act, she took everyone down the memory lane with hits after hits, and a fan only known as Diana, was called on the stage to share the rendition with her, much to applause and standing ovations. Emotional must say, stru!
In comes the much awaited four-some old timers, who defy the age- the Mighty Manhattans.
Dressed in white suits- typical Angels- they took were Regina left off, and none of the fans were left seated as they sang along on every song belted out.
According to legendary Alston, the group has been together over 54 donkey years’ and still going strong. “I hope our South African musicians will take a leaf from them,” said a companion who was celebrating his birthday on the evening.
The legends perform at Teatro tonight Friday July 22 and sign off on Saturday 23 before heading to Cape Town’s Grand Arena on 24 July.
With South African’s having etched a special place in their heart’s, this calls for another star studded show back in mzansi by these legends, or kanjani?
Tickets for the concert are available at Computicket and ranges from R405 – R775.
