How often do you see the crowd’s singing go louder than the vocalist singing the vocals? The Chainsmokers shared a video last night of them playing out their latest his “Closer” in a packed arena in Manila, Phillippines, with the entire crowd singing along, in fact managing to drown the voice of Drew Taggart !!
Before breaking into the song, Drew Taggart, who lends the male vocals on “Closer” could not help, but exclaim how ‘lit’ the crowd was. Once Alex Pass, fellow member of The Chainsmokers got the 20,000 strong crowd even more pumped, the crowd started performing the song – and then you could hardly hear Drew sing for most of the song.
The sing-along seemed so unreal that Drew exclaimed out aloud “You guys love us more than the United States loves us”. That is a serious compliment to the music-loving crowd of the Philippines.
Alex Pass and Drew Taggart still couldn’t get over the amazing experience after the show was over, as they shared a video of the craziness on their Instagram page captioning it, “WHEN THE WHOLE ARENA SINGS WITH YOU.”
