Venturing into the food and beverage industry among local celebrities is not a new thing. Some have succeeded tremendously within and beyond the country. The latest local performer to join this league of celebrity restaurateurs is singer and former TV host, Alvin Anthons.
After travelling to India, Alvin came home and shared his experiences. Alongside his mother he then decided to come up with a string of recipes (including his mother’s) for his restaurant, now christened the Sri Suria Curry House in Kelana Jaya.
And in conjunction with the opening of his restaurant, Alvin took the opportunity to promote his upcoming album.
Set for release in early July, the album features eight tracks that are produced by local award-winning singer/songwriter, Ajai. The album also sees collaborations with rappers, Filsuf and Syko G. It also contains a special recording of the famous Aidilfitri song ‘Menjelang Hari Raya’ once made popular by Datuk DJ Dave.
Having done its mastering in the Grossinger Mastering studio in New York, the album completes Alvin’s dreams of becoming a recording artiste.
Alvin has also just completed the shooting of his latest music video for his next single called ‘Sally’. The video was shot in Indonesia and will be seen by local music lovers very soon.
