This week in... 1999
Ronan Keating is coming to town on Aug 24 to promote his 10th studio album Time Of My Life
When You Say Nothing At All
The smile on your face / Lets me know that you need me / There's a truth in your eyes / Saying you'll never leave me / The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall / You say it best when you say nothing at all
The Irish singer and Boyzone group member's debut solo single peaked at No. 1 on the Irish, UK and New Zealand charts and was given platinum certification from the Australian Recording Industry Association and British Phonographic Industry (BPI).
It was recorded for the soundtrack of the 1999 hit rom-com Notting Hill and also appeared on Keating's debut solo album Ronan.
That was then...
Ronan was also a success, hitting No. 1 on the UK albums chart. It has been certified four times platinum by BPI for sales of 1.2 million copies and kick-started his solo career.
This is now...
Keating signed a new three-album contract with Decca Records and in February, released his 10th studio album Time Of My Life, what he considers his "most personal" work to date as it was inspired by his second wife Storm Uechtritz, whom he married in August 2015.
It is his first album in four years (since 2012's Fires), marking the longest span between two albums.
The 39-year-old father of three has also been juggling music with reality TV singing competitions.
He spent five years on the judging panel of The X Factor Australia and recently joined The Voice Australia as a judge, replacing US-Spanish singer Ricky Martin.
Keating will be in town on Aug 24 for a special acoustic performance at Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa, at 7.30pm.
Fans can attend the gig by purchasing regular park admission tickets or an after 5pm pass.
