Clayderman dedicates ‘You Raise Me Up’ for Yolanda victims

French pianist Philippe Pagès, or Richard Clayderman as the world and his fans know him, dedicated the song “You Raise Me Up” to the Philippines and its people whom he expect to remain strong and eventually rise up from the latest tragedy that struck following the devastation wrought by super typhoon Yolanda.
 
Clayderman, during his first ever concert in the Philippines held at the PIOCC Plenary Hall last November 16, mentioned his love story with his piano which he likened to one’s love with his family and his country which he said is like the Filipinos love for the Philippines.
 
“I’d like to play for you tonight, ‘You Raise Me Up’,” he said before playing his rendition of the song accompanied by a Filipino string orchestra.
 
He also wowed his fans with his famous songs like “Ballade Pour Adeline,” which most Filipinos know as the theme song of the former television program “Lovingly Yours, Helen”; “Adagio” from “Spartacus,” and a medley of the songs from the 1998 hit film “Titanic.”
 
Other songs he played were a medley of the songs written and sang by Stevie Wonder whom he said he has a great admiration for; a medley of various movie theme songs like “Chariots of Fire,” “Lara’s Theme,” “Song for Ana,” “Exodus,” and “Don’t’ Cry for Me Argentina,” among others.
 
Clayderman, during a press conference organized by MCA Music Philippines, in expressing his sympathies for the Filipinos, acknowledged that he may have come to the country at an unfortunate time since it was just barely a week after Yolanda.
 
“Unfortunately I am here at a very unpleasant time for your country and I am aware of the devastation that happened due to the typhoon in some areas of the county, but despite everything, I am still here and really happy to be here with you,” he added.
 
 He said he looks forward to returning to country when he is not working to be able to do more exploring to visit some of the famous sites and taste the famous Filipino cuisines.
 
Dubbed as the “Prince of Romance” by former United States First Lady Nancy Regan, Clayderman began his solo career as a classical pianist in 1976 with the song “Ballade Pour Adeline,” which was written by Olivier Toussaint for his daughter Adeline.
 
Toussaint and Clayderman would have been happy if they sold at least 10,000 copies of the singles especially at a time when “disco” was the “in” thing among the public, never expecting that it would sell some 22 million copies in 38 countries.
 
Almost four decades and 80 million records sold, Claydreman is back with his new 13-track album “Romantique” which he said contains some of his favorite songs.
