SSR Jakarta - Ruben Studdard Visits SSR Jakarta
Ruben Studdard Visits SSR Jakarta
We were delighted to recently welcome Ruben Studdard to SSR Jakarta!

Ruben is an American singer who rose to fame by winning the second season of American Idol. He received a Grammy Award nomination in December 2003 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Superstar, and in the years following Idol, Studdard has released five studio albums, including his platinum-selling debut, Soulful and the top-selling gospel follow-up, I Need an Angel.

Following his performance in the An Evening With David Foster & Friends concert in Surabaya, Ruben travelled to Jakarta to undertake commitments with the Indonesian Idol programme, overseeing a practice session with the contestants.

As you may know, SSR has a strong partnership with Indonesian Idol, part of which sees the show’s contestants using SSR’s facilities as part of their coaching and rehearsal sessions. During the visit to SSR Jakarta, Ruben was there to offer his advice to the finalists, coaching and mentoring the Indonesian contestants to help them prepare and improve their techniques ahead of the next live shows.

Following the coaching session, Ruben also performed for the audience himself, singing his song Unconditional Love which was a recent single from his latest album. The performance was very special and a real treat for everyone in attendance.

It was a real pleasure to welcome Ruben to SSR and see him perform and we would like to thank him for taking the time to visit and offer tips to the Idol contestants.
