Mr Poon was a former member of U Turn band, and he started his singer career in a restobar. When he entered showbiz, he was known as the Michael Bubble of the Philippines. Most of his songs are Bubble style or should i name it as Jazz. "I'll take care of you", "Kumot at Unan", and his cover of "Kahit Maputi na Ang Buhok ko" were just among his famous hits. 

He admitted that most of his fans are mommies, daddies, and lolas. But during this mini concert in SM Lanang Atrium, it was from all ages and all walks of life. It was his first time to perform in SM Lanang and he said during the presscon that hes excited and honor to sing for dabawenyos. He sang one of his favorite song You and I which happens to be a memorable song for him and his girlfriend Maricar Reyes. Reyes was the girl of this music video and it was their first meet up then eventually became a couple.

Richard Poon will soon be releasing a new album and this time he will try some pop songs like songs of Michael Jackson and even Madonna songs. He's excited and would love to sing all these songs again in SM Lanang Premier. Watch out for his series of Valentine show here and abroad.
