MAKES music with a guitar, sings and rides a unicycle…Truly a genius who is ambidexterous and uses both cerebral hemispheres of his brain, I truly enjoyed his show on board the Mariner of the Seas. I relaxed in my plush chair very near the stage in the VIP area and just absorbed everything like a sponge, in the very well appointed Savoy Theatre. Named after the Savoy Theatre in London, next to the iconic Savoy Hotel where I love to stay, this huge theatre inside a cruise ship, has two levels and is different in some ways from the theatre of the same name in London. However, both boast state of the art audio-visual equipment, sound effects and acoustics.
What delighted me most was seeing David DiMuzio juggling huge gleaming Turkish Scimitar Daggers which are made of steel and very sharp…balanced precariously on a big unicycle. He sang too as he juggled with various objects. Absolutely amazing! David got a volunteer form the audience to be his helper. The horizontally challenged jovial Singaporean with a fatty tummy was quite amusing and made me and the audience laugh a lot.
The over 2000 Singaporeans on board were stunned by his command of Mandarin aka Huayu. I was too. The PRC (People’s Republic of China) passengers were equally pleased with is high level Mandarin and clapped boisterously.
In person, he impressed with is high IQ and equally high EQ. Truly, an artiste extraordinaire. Despite his obvious talents, David is a very modest and humble gentleman. I have become a fan and yo will too if you ever see his show. He is also on Youtube which was where he got his “Big Break”. I liked his finale song…”Defying Gravity” from the hit musical “Wicked”.
As the very positive lyrics go:
“There’s no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
With you and I
Talent will always emerge just like how the cream floats to the top of a jug of milk…
