With the event now firmly established as one of the most exclusive high society event on the annual Malaysian social calendar, the 11th edition of the Petronas Grand Prix Gala has yet again fulfilled all expectations of the high profile VIPs and guests in attendance.
With the ballroom again transformed into a fantasy world, this year’s event featured the legendary James “JT” Taylor, more popularly known as the “voice” of legendary group Kool and The Gang. Relentlessly pumping out classic tunes such as Jungle Boogie, Ladies Night, Get Down On It, Joanna and Cherish among others, JT Taylor certainly infected the 500+ VIP guests with his up tempo set list.
This year’s event also marked the very first event attended by Y.B Dato Sri Najib Razak in his capacity as the Prime Minister of Malaysia, having been officially sworn in earlier in the day. As always, the usual array of local & foreign dignitaries was in attendance with of course the Formula One fraternity.
