Acclaimed English singer/songwriter Joss Stone performed a sold out intimate concert in front of just 400 lucky fans in Bangkok recently, the open air rooftop concert being held for charity at the swanky Cloud 47 restaurant.
Part of her Total World Tour, where Stone ambitiously aims to perform in every country on the globe (Thailand marking her centenary show and nation), the March 9 performance was stripped back with just a three-piece band and Stone barefoot in a white summer dress, zestfully making her stunning voice heard immediately on the funky opener “(For God’s Sake) Give More Power To The People”, dedicated to the previous day’s International Women’s Day.
More uplifting messages were delivered with “Big Ol’ Game” and the reggae flavoured “Love Me”. A charged up “Super Duper Lover” got everyone out of their seats to dance along while a chatty and feisty Stone bared her Dover soul on music, which built into a flamboyant crescendo from her band.
The ska groove of “Harry’s Symphony” kept the dance flow going before she expressed her remarkably versatile voice further on a bewitching cover of “I Put A Spell On You”.
Leaving with the ballad “Right To Be Wrong” saw Stone playfully throwing out orange chrysanthemums into the appreciative crowd. It was indeed an enchanting evening under the stars.
