KRU (3)

KRU is a Malaysian pop boy band that was formed in 1992. The group comprises three brothers namely Datuk[1]Norman Abdul Halim, Yusry Abdul Halim and Edry Abdul Halim. Apart from revolutionising the Malaysian music scene with their unique blend of pop, R&B and hip hop, they have successfully established their own entertainment company KRU Studios specialising in the entertainment and media industry.
Early history Edit

Their interest for creating music sparked when they were very young, when one of their aunts bought Norman a keyboard which also attracted his other brothers. They spent their teen years in London where they were exposed to various genres of music, in contrast to the Malay music scene at that time which was dominated by classic rock and ballads.

They continued to write original songs, but little did they know one of Norman's college mates sent a demo to EMI. The International Label Manager by the name of Calvin Wong (now Vice-President at Warner Music Asia Pacific) was very impressed by the song and called the brothers to audition. Thus, KRU was formed on 19 May 1992. KRU (addressed by the initials K.R.U and not "kru") stands for Kumpulan Rap Utama or "Major Rap Group", but it is also the Malay word for "crew", borrowed from English.[2]

In 2000, they formed a virtual band named Tyco, whose members consisted of computer-generated alternate versions of themselves.[3]

They also diversified their ventures into film making through the establishment of KRU Studios in 2008, which has produced large-scale and high budgeted films such as the Cicak Man series, Duyung, Magika and Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa.
