The project is expected to become an annual event that not only brings the world's top music to Vietnam but also utilises all proceeds for charitable activities run by the newspaper.

This is Kenny G’s second tour to Vietnam after the first one in 2015.

The show entitled “Kenny G Live in Vietnam”, part of “Good Morning Vietnam”, is set to last for over two hours at the National Convention Centre in Nam Tu Liem district.

The Grammy Awards winner and his accompanying band will perform famous compositions throughout his career, such as "Going Home," "Havana," "Romeo & Juliet," and "My Heart Will Go On." He will also play a Vietnamese folk song on the occasion.
