It did not take much to convince top-selling American boy-band group Backstreet Boys to perform again in Singapore.

The best-selling boy band – with record sales of over 100 million records – and multi-Grammy Award winner Chaka Khan were two of the entertainment acts that race organisers revealed on Thursday as part of the entertainment package for the event from September 25 to 27.
“Both the Backstreet Boys and Chaka Khan normally perform at concerts… they see a sexy element to the night race and reckon they will have a blast,” said Singapore GP director of operations Sarah Martin.
