Lisa Surihani can now add 'concert crew' to her impressive resume, according to what her husband Yusry KRU wrote on Instagram. The Malaysian singer, who recently performed with his band KRU at Esplanade in Singapore for their 25th anniversary, credited his wife for how well the concert turned out.

"My lovely wife in our dressing room at Esplanade," Yusry wrote on Instagram. "By now, some of you already know that she was the 'surprise' back up dancer for KRU25 concert in SG. It was one of the highlights of the show. The truth is, her part was more than that."

"Throughout the fasting month while I was arranging and programming my half of the concert, she would come into the studio and sing the songs with me," he continued. "Most of the time she remembered the words better than I did. She would tell me what she liked bout the new arrangements.

"When it's late at night and she's gone quiet, when I peek at her, she actually fell asleep on the couch in the studio. When it came to rehearsals, she was the 'drill instructor' making sure I remembered every move and didn't cheat on the steps. When it came to the costumes, she went and bought all the accessories I needed and packed everything for me. Every costume change, she's there like a F1 pit stop crew... Everything was arranged while holding up my jacket.

"Needless to say, I always changed in record time ;) Darling, the concert wouldn't have been the same without you. Thanks very much for your understanding, support and patience throughout the preparation & execution for KRU25... And thanks for the cool moves too," Yusry said.

 

My lovely wife in our dressing room at esplanade. By now, some of you already know that she was the 'surprise' back up dancer for KRU25 concert in SG. It was one of the highlights of the show. The truth is, her part was more than that. Sepanjang bulan puasa while I was arranging & programming my half of the concert she would come into the studio and sing the songs with me. Most of the time she remembered the words better than I did. She would tell me what she liked bout the new arrangements. Bila dah lewat malam tiba2 dia senyap. Bila intai rupanya dah tidur atas couch dalam studio 😢 When it came to rehearsals, she was the 'drill instructor' making sure I remembered every move and didn't cheat on the steps. Bila bab costume, dia pergi beli all the accessories I needed and packed everything for me. Every costume change, she's there macam F1 pit stop crew... Semua tersusun rapi while holding up my jacket. Needless to say I always changed in record time ;) Sayang, the concert wouldn't have been the same without you. Thanks very much for your understanding, support & patience throughout the preparation & execution for #kru25... And thanks for the cool moves too ❤️ from Yusry KRU, your husband ;)

You think that's cute? Wait till you see Lisa's appreciation post where she said "To my dearest Yushby, as I watch over you putting Yahaira down for her nap now, I think you praise me way too much. Too much. More than what I deserve. With you in my life, I'm the lucky one here...I love you Baby Daddy."

 

Found this pic of us from the #kru25 from your dear fan Sayang. Now I'm not too sure where to begin. Way too many people to thank for #kru25 in Singapore. First and foremost, to KRU for letting me live one of my dreams to be a backup dancer for KRU. One might say being a wife, it was all by default, but the fact they invested the faith and trust in me to do so, syukur Alhamdulillah for what I consider to be a golden opportunity, I didn't want to let KRU especially Yusry down. I had so much fun because I was learning from such a friendly, humble and super duper fun dance crew @onstageproductionsm , seeing their determination and passion too, had to learn everything in the short time that we had, i'm glad that throughout the whole journey, we had fun. Would like to also thank the KRU Staff and Team ; Felicia, AC, Archie, Rizal, Yat, Razif, Aidil, Fahmy, Petch, Arin, KRU Academy interns, Musicians, Backup Vocals, Dancers, Syamil TMO because without your hard work and support, it wouldn't have been as successful as it was that night. I would also like to personally thank Eri for doing my hair and Norman's and for Kak Jun for making me up despite your tight schedules. I truly and appreciate all of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Esplanade Singapore and Rendezvous Hotel for your professionalism and hospitality. To my dearest Yushby, as I watch over you putting Yahaira down for her nap now, i think you praise me way too much. Too much. More than what I deserve. With you in my life, i'm the lucky one here.. I love you Baby Daddy.
