I Wanna Hold Your Hand
Justin Bieber's My World Tour comes to Singapore on 19th April 2011, and if you haven't got your tickets, chances are it'll likely be sold out very, very soon. But fret not, because what could be the next best alternative, would be this documentary by Jon Chu which charts the teenage sensation's meteoric rise from a nobody in Canada, to a somebody now taking the musical world by storm.
Yes, that boy with the child like voice and floppy hair is hitting the big screens in digital and 3D formats as well in his debut concert film which follows the likes of U2 and Miley Cyrus amongst others to bring you up close and personal through hard to get front row seats to their performances, while at the same time we get to know a little bit more about the consummate performer who has female fans eating out of his hands, shrieking each time they seem his silhouette appear, and getting all in-sync with hand signs that spell c-u-l-t.
But for the uninitiated like myself, I came out impressed that he's no overnight hack, but having real multi-hypenated talent in playing musical instruments, as well as being talent spotted at the right place at the right time, with technology becoming that booster required to take word of mouth to the stratosphere. It's a film that succinctly and subtly examines the power of social media in giving someone a chance to make it, and it's a powerful force to be reckoned with when combined with sheer hard work behind the scenes to make dreams come alive.
It's not all pat on the back that films like these will likely succumb to, and what would be deemed a villain would be Bieber's fight against a hoarse throat as he battles to be fit for his debut concert at one of the world's most iconic performance venue, New York City's Madison Square Garden. But you won't be bothered much by it as you get mesmerized by his discography, which comes peppered with many guest vocalists to ramp up the glam factor.
