Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: When You Say Nothing At All

Shaun and Zara’s wedding was a marriage of people and cultures. It was my first time singing for a Russian bride – a model no less. Zara’s beauty was matched by her feisty personality, and she wouldn’t hesitate to tell us what her opinions.

Shaun was a meticulous groom. He had in-laws to take care of, banquet matters to attend to, and goodness knows how many million other things to manage. Yet he still found time to rehearse two songs with us: When You Say Nothing At All and Wonderful Tonight.

He chose these two songs because he wanted the songs to be romantic and moving. His song choices and rendition scored on both counts. Zara walked over to join him as he serenaded her, with outstretched arms and assured vocals.

We had a great time performing. The cocktail reception was taken care of by Justin and Alvin, while the dinner banqquet had Eleanor, Regi, Jordan and myself. A special guest star joined us late into the party. Boon Gee, drummer extraordinare, was the icing on the cake. The moment he took over, the music-making went to a whole new different level. There was spontaneous singing and dancing as the guests felt the infectious power of live music.

Congratulations Shaun and Zara!
