Indonesian actress-singer Bunga Citra Lestari, known as BCL, will reportedly still perform in an upcoming Jakarta concert this Saturday alongside Irish singer Ronan Keating following the death of her husband, Malaysian actor Ashraf Sinclair just a week ago.
"Though still in mourning, BCL [remains] professional [and] will still perform at the concert alongside Ronan Keating; an artist she has known since the 90s," said spokesperson for the singer's management, Yenny Erlin, in a statement as quoted by kompas.com on Monday.
"It is a positive thing for BCL to continue her work and surely her late husband would want the same thing as well," added Yenny.
The "Romantic Valentine Concert", set to take place at Pullman Jakarta Central Park's Grand Ballroom in West Jakarta on Feb. 29, is also scheduled to feature Filipino singer Christian Bautista.
BCL is said to have prepared several songs that she will perform solo, as well as a duet with Keating and Bautista.
Ashraf died of a heart attack on Feb. 18 at around 4 a.m. in Jakarta. The celebrity couple were married in 2008 and have a son, Noah Aidan Sinclair. (kes)
