Zainal Abidin, the legend among legends

Part 3 of a 4 part series celebrating the superstars of the Legendary Concert: Jamal Abdillah, Sheila Majid, Zainal Abidin, and Amy Search.

In a career spanning over 30 years, Zainal Abidin has seen and done it all. Multi-award winning hits. Tens of thousands of album sales. Sell out concerts. Controversies with his personal life. The life of a superstar isn’t easy, and no one knows that better than him. And it often takes a certain type of person to survive it all, a person with not just the talent, but the charisma and perseverance to see it through. Zainal has all these qualities in spades.

His performance during the Legendary Concert took the cake for me. He weaved a story into the songs he sang, sharing with us intimate details about why each was important to him. He told jokes, made us smile, laugh and sing with him. It was a complete performance, perfect.
