The Greatest Love of All is Belinda Davids’ tribute concert to one of the most beautiful voices of all times. Directed by Johnny Van Grinsven, the concert has already toured the US, Europe, Canada, Asia, South Africa, UAE, Australia and New Zealand, to arrive at the London Palladium for one night only. And what a night!
With a live six-piece band, four skilled dancers, a background vocalist and the wonderful London Philharmonic Orchestra, Davids sings all Whitney’s hits: ‘How Will I Know’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Have Nothing’, ‘I’m Every Woman’, ‘Greatest Love of All’, ‘One Moment in Time’, ‘Your Love is My Love’, ‘So Emotional’ and many more (but where is ‘Run to You’?)
It is sad to think that Whitney Houston is no longer with us anymore. She had a troubled life: drugs, domestic violence, allegations of sexual abuse. But her peerless voice gave us eternal music and shows like this one help us to keep Whitney’s memory and legacy alive.
Davids’ perfect voice goes from song to song without much dialogue in between: the queen of the night is the music. And the audience responded greatly to the energy coming from the stage: multiple standing ovations, people screaming up on their feet, dancing along to the tunes. A wonderful party, one of those parties that you never want to leave.
Whether if you are a fan of Whitney or not, don’t miss The Greatest Love of All, because it is a magical way to pay homage to the legend of pop, gone too soon.
You are a star, Belinda. Whitney would be very proud of you.
