Earlier in 2012, award-winning producer and songwriter David Foster was made chairman of Verve Music Group by Universal Music Group (UMG). The announcement of the move, in efforts to expand further into the growing adult contemporary and pop music markets, was made by UMB chairman and CEO, Lucian Grainge.
Based in Los Angeles, US, David Foster now leads the creative operations of Verve Music Group, with strong focus on identifying new talent and further developing UMG’s roster of adult music and pop artistes. Previously, his portfolio includes A-list artistes such as the late Michael Jackson, the late Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, Bryan Adams, Mariah Carey, Chicago, and many, many more!
So it didn’t come as a complete surprise to us when he picked our very own Malaysian darling, Yuna Zarai to be part of Verve Music Group. Yes, it’s true! It was confirmed when David Foster himself tweeted the following recently:
“Keep an eye out” indeed!
Yuna then retweeted it, confirming her move to Verve Music Group. As a matter of fact, she’s already getting busy in the studio! We hear that she’s also in the process of recording a new album for Verve Music Group. And we’ll be honest – we can’t wait to hear it.\
Congratulations, Yuna! You’re truly an inspiration for all Malaysians. And we’re with you every step of the way!
