Crossover group ‘Forestella (Bae Doo Hoon, Kang Hyung Ho, Cho Min Kyu and Ko Woo Rim) successfully wrapped up their first five-city tour in North America with a concert in Atlanta.

On the 5th, the Symphony Hall at the Woodruff Arts Center in Downtown was filled with excitement as more than 1,600 Korean and American audiences gathered to watch Forestella’s performance.

Forestella member Go Woo-rim spoke fluent English and Cho Min-kyu’s witty speech drew a positive response from the audience.

When they talked, they looked like pretty boys, but when they got into the song, they elicited cheers from the audience with their mature singing skills.

The four male choirs who presented their first song with ‘Like Someone in the Legend’ on this day, sang many songs including ‘Nella Fantasia’, the insert song of the movie Mission, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the hit song of the group Queen, and ‘Shape of you’.

In addition, as a four-person, four-color soloist who made full use of their own voice color, they sang the theme song of the musical ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and the famous song ‘The Prayer of Gethsemane’ and Remember from the musical ‘Jesus Christ’, showing that they are wonerful singers as soloists.

Forestella sang their latest album ‘Utopia’ as the last song and once again presented great harmony. The song features a chromatic progression like The Phantom of the Opera, and an abrupt, very brief solo like Bohemian Rhapsody.

Also a cappella harmony appears immediately after a solo, and dots final note singing the Phicardy third (ending note in a major chord during minor key). It added a sense of mystery as if it had created a new genre, such as mixing traditional techniques such as , counterpoint, and chorale.

After presenting three encore songs even after singing Utopia passionately, Forestella bade farewell, saying, “I will definitely come back with a better stage in the future.”

This Atlanta performance was hosted by the Korean Association of Atlanta, supervised by the Georgia Atlanta Beauty Association, hosted by Y&Y Entertainment, and was specially sponsored by the Federation of Korean Association, S.E.U.S.A.

Lee Kang-ha, chairman of the Georgia Atlanta Beauty Association, said, “I wanted to present a high-quality performance to the Koreans in Atlanta.”

Forestella held their tour concert ‘Forestella N.AMERICA TOUR’ in Los Angeles on January 20th, then in Vancouver, New York, Dallas, and 5 cities in North America, including Atlanta on the 5th.

Also a cappella appears immediately after a chant, including singing the Phicardy third (ending note in a major chord during minor key).

It added a sense of mystery as if it had created a new genre, such as mixing traditional techniques such as old chant, counterpoint, and chorale.
