K & K: Kea Chan & Kayla Merrow in Live Virtual Concert to Celebrate Love and Valentine’s Day

K & K: Kea Chan & Kayla Merrow in Live Virtual Concert to Celebrate Love and Valentine’s Day

Of all the singers I have heard recently Kea Chan and Kayla Merrow are beyond fabulous! For those who know me, I am extremely critical of young singers as I was one, so I know the ends and outs of this profession. If I find singers who go beyond the average talent, I am their biggest fans. These two young artists are ones to watch and I highly recommend this concert.

On Saturday, February 13th, 2021 at 3pm EST/12Noon PST, K & K (Kea Chan and Kayla Merrow) will bring to you a new concert created and produced by Robert R Blume of Step Forward Entertainment, along with Pat Labez and Cambridge Productions. Love Springs Eternal! will feature this duo of rising young stars in a brand new concert on Metropolitan Zoom!

Kayla Merrow and Kea Chan in  Looking for Tomorrow

K & K return to the virtual concert stage of MetropolitanZoom.com where they previously enjoyed a ‘hit’ debut concert Looking for Tomorrow in August 2020. This February 13th, concert will highlight musical numbers celebrating all things to do with love. This is the perfect pre-Valentine’s Day treat. The concert will also feature international music director Bobby DeLeon on the keyboard. Justin Senense has returned to virtually stage the concert.

Robert R. Blume, President of Step Forward Entertainment said “Getting a call from Metropolitan Zoom owner Bernard Furshpan to do another concert because of the tremendous success of the last one was exciting for all of us.  We are looking forward to getting together at the new Metropolitan Zoom Studio A in Long Island City to perform this live 4-camera show at the virtual nightclub site which adds to the excitement.”
