His opener was the Christmas carols concert at the Prime Minister’s residence, at Temple Trees, where he entertained the invitees with four festive specials.Describing the event, he said it was a classy evening that had an exclusive gathering of Sri Lanka’s best citizens and Ambassadors from all over the world.
The scene was equally exciting when he performed for the President and his Cabinet Ministers, at President’s House.
The public got the opportunity of seeing the ‘Disco Lady’ hitmaker, in action, when he made a live appearance at the Christmas Street celebrations (Green Path, Colombo 7).
At all the events, Alston’s repertoire consisted of those beautiful songs, connected with Christmas.
Alston was also involved in the launch of the special double decker bus (with Minister John Amaratunga), for the festive season, and the ‘lighting up’ of the City of Colombo, and the Christmas Tree, at The Arcade, by the Prime Minister.
