The popular singer puts on a great show at Impact Arena to celebrate Toyota's golden anniversary


Helping Toyota celebrate 50 years in business, Da Endorphine rocked the crowds last Saturday at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani with her “Magic of the Night” concert, singing hits from all her albums, including those from the days when she was with her band Endorphine.
The audience screamed as Da’s eyes were shown on the big screen and roared even louder as the 26-year-old singer appeared on stage, launching into the first verse of “Ya Tham Hai Fah Phid Wang” from the band’s second album, 2005’s “Sakkawa”. The fans took it upon themselves to act as the back up chorus.
Da continued with “Dai Yin Mai” from her second solo effort “Sound About…” released in 2008 and last year’s “Ruang Khong Rao” off “Dokmai Fai” before taking her fans back again to her band’s hugely successful debut outing “Phrik” with “Sing Sam Khan”.
“I’ve been so happy following the music road,” said Da, taking a breather and greeting fans, before singing “Ying Roo Jak Ying Rak Ther”, a new song written for the motor company’s anniversary.
Da then presented a medley of her inspirational covers before taking us back again in 2004 with “Puean Sanit”, the first song recorded for GMM Grammy.
Then it was to meet her guests, among them songs-for-lifer Eed Footpath’s daughters who surprised and entertained the audience with a cello and violin rendition of Lady Gaga's “Poker Face”. Purze, Earth, and Dream were all picked through YouTube and sang Da’s songs and covers. Filipino singer Janice impressed the audience with her high pitches on Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You”, though she was a little weaker on the hook.
With more luk thung singers crossing over into pop and rock, fans gave a warm welcome to popular luk thung singer Apaporn Nakhonsawan who performed her hit “Shape Ba” and Christina Aguilar’s “Phood Aik Thee”.
Da then handed over the stage to 25 Hours. Fans enjoyed their show, standing up and dancing to all the numbers. The rock chick then returned, performing songs from “Sound About…”, “Dokmai Fai” as well as the debut “Phrik”.
Marsha Wattanapanich chose not to sing any of Da’s songs but instead performed her own hits, among them “Taek Hak” and “Od Jai Mai Wai”.
Before the concert came to an end, Da dug out more old songs from her solo debut “Phap Luangta” in 2007, “Nam Tem Kaew” then performed an acoustic version of “Sing Sam Khan”.
