Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: On The Wings Of Love
Jessica and Clarence felt the first stirrings of romance, time and distance were not on their side.
They were close friends for a while, but they really started to miss each other when Jessica took on a job in Hong Kong. A long-distance relationship soon developed over frequent late-night MSN conversations, and the couple officially got together on Christmas Day three years ago.
While Clarence was “pining” for Jessica, she made the monumental decision of changing her job last year to be close to her man.
Before I started singing On The Wings Of Love, my corny sense of humour started to manifest, and I said, “When Jessica was flying back to Singapore, she must be doing so on the wings of love!”
I had so much fun performing for Jessica and Clarence! Joel and Leo were on fire that night, and their chemistry was amazing.
But what made my evening was the enthusiasm of the guests. A few, in particular, sang loudly with me. In fact, their voices were so robust it seemed as if I had a backup choir echoing me! It was fantastic!
Congratulations Jessica and Clarence! May the both of you be blessed with joy and happiness always.
P.S. When I had a few minutes with Jessica and Clarence before the wedding reception, I asked Jessica what made her decide to return to Singapore. She simply said, “Because he’s worth it!”

Songs To Recommend:
Stand By Me by Shayne Ward, winner of the second series of The X Factor – The song starts off slow and quiet, and builds up to an anthemic chorus. A great wedding song!
On The Wings Of Love – I’m so glad Jessica chose this song. Do click on the link and listen to Jeffrey Osborne’s masterful live performance of the song.
Compliments from Jessica:
Hi Hsin Yeow, Joel & Leo,
Thank you very much for the excellent performance that evening. It was a pity that I didn’t have much time to enjoy most of the songs personally.
Relatives and friends were raving about your performance, especially Clarence’s uni mates (the two tables that decided to be your backup choir). The song, If We Hold On Together, was a very special song for all of them as it was their orientation song back in their NUS days. That explained for the spontaneous sing along session.
I’m so glad we had you guys with us that evening. It made a whole lot of difference to a otherwise typical chinese wedding dinner.
Thank you once again for ‘spicing’ up our special night.
