Stacy to open MTV World Stage Malaysia 2015 on Sept 12

KUALA LUMPUR: Akademi Fantasia Season 6 champion Stacy Anam will be the opening act at MTV World Stage Malaysia 2015. 

To be held at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya on Sept 12, the 25-year-old Sabahan was chosen from a pool of 28 local acts when MTV turned the spotlight on fans to decide on their choice as the opening act. 

After two weeks of fans’ voting, the award-winning singer received the highest votes for Malaysia’s #MostWanted Act. 

Stacy will join MTV’s line-up of performers comprising multi-platinum selling, international superstar Jason Derulo, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen, Korea’s favourite K-pop idol female group Apink and hottest Japanese band Sekai No Owari. 

To be recorded live for global telecast, the one-night only outdoor event is one of the biggest Southeast Asia music nights of the year, which brings multi-genre talents onto a single stage. 

“I’m shaking with excitement with this huge opportunity on the MTV stage. Thank you MTV and to my fans who voted me as Malaysia’s #MostWanted Act, I’ll make you proud! So come celebrate with me at MTV World Stage Malaysia 2015!” said Stacy. 

Paras Sharma, Vice President, MTV & Digital Media, Viacom International Media Networks Asia commented: “Our focus was to turn the spotlight on fans and showcase talent in front of the camera and behind the scenes. The fans have spoken and chosen Stacy as their #MostWanted local act to open the show!” 

Stacy first started out as a singer in local clubs to help support her family at the age of 16. Early on, Stacy participated in a few notable singing reality shows, but it was AF that brought her immense fame. 

Her debut album Aku Stacy was released in March 2009. Since then, she has been on a fast-track to stardom, having released two more albums - Stay-C and Stacy #1 in 2011 and 2014 respectively with Warner Music Malaysia. Stacy #1 was also released in Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei. 

Proving her popularity over the last seven years, Stacy has bagged more than 12 awards locally, including two awards at Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian and Best Album Cover at the last year’s Anugerah Industri Muzik. 

Also known as “Malaysia Dancing Queen”, she has performed a number of local shows and made numerous TV appearances.
