Singh said these performers were almost universal.

"Where would we be without music?” he said.

"Music and the artists that made it are our time machines, their songs and stories transport us to moments in time.

"Heaven's Greatest Hits is a tribute to those incredible artists we've loved and lost. "May their legacy live forever.”

Heaven's Greatest Hits hits the Civic Centre next Saturday, September 14, from 8-11pm.
