Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Memorising Your Lyrics
By some strange coincidence, 3 of my clients in January sang for their wives during the wedding dinner.
Joe was the first; he surprised me because he wanted to sing 勇气 (Courage). You need about three lungs to sing this song properly because there’s a huge chunk of words to plough through before you hit the chorus.
Li Wei and Joseph
I needn’t have worried. As Joe sang, it became obvious he knew the song well. He also kept his eyes glued to the lyrics sheet, and occasionally flicked nervous glances at his beautiful wife Li Wei, who was looking slightly amused.
But what happened next was truly unexpected. Somewhere during the middle of the song, Li Wei went right up to her husband, and snatched the lyrics sheet away! While clutching it close to her chest, she cried, “You should have memorised the lyrics!”
Li Wei snatching lyrics from Joseph…
Joe nodded wordlessly, and gamely finished the song without missing a single beat!
Joseph singing the song from memory!

Compliments from Joseph:
I write this message with my hearf-felt thank to the guys/gal in A Little Dream.
Thank you for the wonderful performance on my wedding night.
You have certainly enchanted my guests with your singing (both on the stage, and roving style) and added the “X” factor to the event. Not forgetting your backing me up during my nervous solo performance
for my wife!
To those couples out there wanting to spice up your dinner event, you have got to see these guys! They are truly professional and have got lots to offer.
They are punctual, thorough in preparations and well set-up, have a large repertoire of songs, and most importantly, they can SING!
Thank you, once again, for your magic that night! Cheers!
