RELEASE DATE: 2nd May 2013

Recorded live onboard Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas, ‘Live In Brazil’ includes a medley of Gipsy Kings classics; Brazilian favourites like songs by Roberto Carlos and Tom Jobim; and Sinatra’s biggest crowd-pleasers My Way and New York, New York. 

There are a few surprises too with brilliant tributes to Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue, both in the big band style. Gary’s even recorded songs in German and Japanese.

Explaining why this album means so much to him, Gary said, “For as long as I can remember I’ve had a love affair with Brazil. I love the people, the weather, the food and of course, the music. When Royal Caribbean offered me the chance to headline for two Brazilian seasons, I jumped at the chance.”

In 8 months the show was seen by over 20,000 Brazilians and judging by their reaction, it’s obvious Gary loved every minute of his time on stage. ‘Live in Brazil’ is a great addition to Gary’s other albums and captures the energy and fun of his live shows.  

Reviews

“I must have enjoyed this CD because I let it repeat itself and found myself singing along to some of the tracks. Williams obviously has what it takes to be a cabaret artist – one of the most difficult occupations for a singer. He has charisma and a great voice.” Musical Theatre Review

“Gary comes across as enthusiastic and reactive throughout this 62 minute, 22 track, master class in entertaining an audience. It is always difficult to transfer a “live” performance to an album as the contact between performer and audience is so much a part of the success of the show. This album brings with it all the atmosphere of a modern cabaret/stage show.” Encore Magazine
