Ailee and Famed Chinese Pianist Lang Lang Collaborate on ‘If I Ain’t Got You’
Ailee has recorded a special collaboration stage with famed Chinese pianist, Lang Lang.
On November 27, Ailee participated in the recording for MBC’s Beautiful Concert and performed a special duet with Lang Lang.
The two chose to do their take on the famed Alicia Keys song, If I Ain’t Got You as Ailee’s powerful vocals were aided by Lang Lang’s beautiful piano playing.
Ahead of their performance, Ailee and Lang Lang spoke together in fluent English about their stage, and their work chemistry transferred over to the stage.
As Lang Lang is one of the most renown pianists in the world, it isn’t common to see K-Pop artists performing together with Lang Lang but it was revealed the pianist himself requested he wanted to work with Ailee, leading to the creation of their special stage.
Following their performance, Lang Lang shared, “I’m thankful to Ailee for creating such a great performance. I was moved by Ailee’s song and singing.”
Ailee returned the compliments saying, “It was an honor to perform with a global pianist. If another opportunity comes, I would love to do another performance with him.”
The special stage will air on MBC on December 9.
