A Great Big World Live in Malaysia 2014
Harlo guys, have you heard before this song called "Say Something" by Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World? The good news I would like to share today is they are coming to Malaysia this 7 August 2014! How I wish Christina Aguilera is coming along too!!
Connections define music as much as notes, melodies, and rhythms do. When it strikes the right personal chords, an album can change moods, outlooks, and even lives. New York pop singer-and-songwriter duo A Great Big World—Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino—treasure the precious bond between artist and listener. This is the power of A Great Big World to be able to touch the inner souls of its listeners. The WonderLand+ is most pleased to announce the debut concert of A Great Big World Live in Malaysia 2014, kicking off on 7th August 2014, KL Live, 8:30pm.

A Great Big World - Already Home
The songwriter duo, Vaccarino and Axel first met in the NYU practice rooms while still in college. After a few twists and turns of fate in 2012, the friends formed A Great Big World and released a six-song EP funded by Kickstarter. It spawned the viral sensation "This Is the New Year", which ended up being performed by the cast on Fox's Glee. Soon after, a recording deal was offered to them. In late 2013, everybody who had heard the group's single "Say Something" reacted to it. After playing during a pivotal segment of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, this little song began its journey to becoming a big platinum-selling hit. The terse, tearful piano and Axel's heavenly hypnotic vocals tugged on heartstrings worldwide. One heart that felt it especially hard belonged to none other than Christina Aguilera.
"We got this email from her that was written like a poem about the song," Axel recalls. "She told us that she wanted to work with us, and we were completely floored. We couldn't believe it. A week later, we were in Los Angeles recording it with her. Everything just started happening after that," Vaccarino goes on. "Soon, it was like we'd lived a whole lifetime in just a few months."
A Great Big World went on to perform the song with Aguilera on NBC's The Voice, and that version took off to #1 on iTunes. The same phenomena occurred after a heartfelt performance at The American Music Awards, which generated worldwide applause. They closed out the year bringing the audience at The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to its feet followed up by sold out New Year's Eve gigs supporting Maroon 5. The album also boasts great songs like “Rockstar”, "I Really Want It", "Already Home" that coast forward on swinging piano and uplifting choruses that instantly invigorate and inspire. It's pop with a purpose and a positive message. As Vaccarino sums it up, "There is no separation between people. We're all an integral part of one great big world.”
