When you have sung with the likes of Plácido Domingo and Pavarotti you are perhaps used to ovations and accolades, but when you are an opera singer, singing a song from ‘Old blue eyes’ at an event filled with people half your age into trap music, you would be forgiven for thinking that you may not be the highlight of the evening, wrong!
Robert Magyar who has been singing at the highest level from his days at school, starting at The internationally acknowledged choir of Tóth Lajos Általános Iskola in primary school and going on to perform with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, Yevgeny Nesterenko, Elena Obraztsova, Éva Marton did not expect his music to have such an impact at the G Salvatore Fashion showcase, his first UK performance.
It has taken us almost a month to catch up with the elusive singer who flew straight from the G Salvatore Showcase to events in Europe and has only just found a moment to speak to us.
we asked was he surprised by the response of the audience to his singing?
Yes and No. I know the power of good music, good singing, good vibrations in music will reach even the coldest heart. I did not expect the response I got because everything was new for me. This type of audience, this type of venue and event was new for me, so I did not know what to expect, but I believed in Stevie [Eagle E] when he told me not to worry about the audience to just do what I do. He told me the only one that needs to like it is him [Laughing].
You are first and foremost an Opera trained singer, why did you sing Frank Sinatra’s My Way?
Maybe I was wrong in thinking this, but I thought opera might be a bit too much for this audience or event. I think I was wrong, but in the end, I had a good effect on people so I am happy. I spoke to Stevie [Eagle E] just before I went on, I asked him should I sing ‘My Way or Elvis, Stevie told me that Elvis was a favourite of his father so I was going to sing Elvis, but he said, sing ‘My Way’ So in the last seconds I told the guys, play ‘My Way’ and it worked out very well.
You have performed all over the world with many great singers and choirs, how did the G Salvatore Showcase rate for you?
First I want to say that I love to sing, I love what I do, I am passionate about it so every event for me is great no matter where it is or who I am singing to. I felt very at home with this event and I hope that Stevie [Eagle E] will invite me again. I met some fantastic artist like Beate Jacobsen, Stephan Dante, Prince Bayo and Marcellina, I made some good friends and I even had enough time to record something with some of these artists, but I cannot say too much right now. This event had many types of musical styles, it was very different from many events I perform at with one style, one vibe, one type of thing. There were many different styles at this event, it was a ‘music lovers’ dream and then all the beautiful women and fashion. It was very special I hope to do something like this again.
