In particular, renowned saxophonist Kenny G will perform in Hanoi on November 14, marking the opening of "Good Morning Vietnam," an international music project dedicated to the community in Vietnam, initiated by the Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper and IB Group Vietnam.

"Good Morning Vietnam" is expected to be an annual event that not only brings the world's top music to Vietnam but also utilizes all proceeds for charitable activities run by the Nhan Dan Newspaper.

Nhan Dan Editor-in-Chief Le Quoc Minh said that in recent years, the newspaper has organized numerous major artistic and charitable programs aimed at supporting wounded soldiers, martyrs' families, disadvantaged students, and teachers in remote areas.

The "Kenny G live in Vietnam," the opening program, is set to last for over two hours at the National Convention Centre in Nam Tu Liem district, with the Grammy Awards winner and his accompanying band performing all famous compositions throughout his career, such as "Going home," "Havana," "Romeo & Juliet," and "My heart will go on."

Nguyen Thuy Duong, the event’s executive producer, said the organizers received many requirements regarding the sound and lighting systems from the artist. To meet these requirements, the organizers had to rent and deliver two mixers from Japan to Vietnam to use in the concert.

Kenny G is an American composer, producer, and saxophone legend with hundreds of instrumental music pieces. He has sold over 75 million records worldwide and became one of the best-selling artists of all time. He was a very familiar name for the Vietnamese audience during the 1990s.
