Singer Son Ho-young to Go Solo

Sept 4, 2006

Singer Son Ho-young, a member of the male group G.O.D., will go solo through a showcase concert on September 12.

Son will present some songs from his solo debut album, including “I Cry” and “Yes,” at the concert, which will be held at the Seoul Fashion Art Hall in Dongdaemun, Seoul. The title song “I Cry,” a lyric ballad, highlights the powerful voice of Son, who can sing three octaves. The medium-tempo funky style “Yes” is a dance song with a pounding beat.

Son has reportedly abandoned his old singing style which he used for the last seven years during his G.O.D. days, and acquired a totally new style for the solo album.

Son said, “I’m more nervous than when I debuted as a member of G.O.D. I’m afraid of presenting a performance alone without the other members. But I will show fans everything I have as a musician at the concert.”

Other G.O.D. members like Park Jun-hyung, Kim Tae-woo and Danny Ahn, and his close celebrity friends including singer Oak Joo-hyun and actress Jo Yeo-jung, will appear in the concert as guests to congratulate Son. Comedian Jung Jun-ha will host the show.
