In one event, SS was invited to perform for the audience. First, SS was charging quite a hefty sum for only five songs. Second, other than his hefty fee, SS had specific requirements for his performance. He requested for a teleprompter and an earpiece to hear himself on stage. In short, the client adhered to his fee and his technical rider (requirements), which added extra production expenses that the client had to shoulder. During the contract signing, the client specified the five songs for SS to sing. The representative of SS agreed, and the contract was signed and sealed.
On the day of the event, SS did not perform any of the five songs the client requested. Worse, the audience noticed that SS did not sing live, and he just lip-synched his numbers. It is worth nothing that sometime ago, SS had an interview with a well-respected international female singer (IF), who expressed her strong opinion against singers who lip-synch and do not memorize lyrics. SS even expressed his agreement with IF on the matter.
Given his interview with IF, SS is such a disappointment for performing in this manner. Professional singers should adhere to their contracts and perform live each day that they have to go on stage. The audience expects and deserves more. They are no longer fooled by a singer who merely moves his lips to his own recording. What was SS thinking?
Performance stands out like a ton of diamonds. Nonperformance can always be explained away. Harold S. Geneen
