Bevlyn’s thoughts: Just Because
I was looking forward excitedly to this wedding performance because of the excellent song choices by Janice. She had chosen some songs which were not so commonly heard in weddings (or I should say, I don’t commonly sing) – Time After Time, Lady In Red, Crazy For You, Just Because, just to name a few.
On top of that, pairing up with James was a delight, because his funk-influenced playing gave each song (well almost every except the ballads) a brand new arrangement.
James and I were located right facing the ballroom door, and it was a refreshing view for us this time round, because I finally get the catch the first view of the couple for a change. I still remember vividly the surprise look on Wee Teck’s face when he first see so many guests standing up to receive Janice and him into the ballroom – priceless 🙂
Janice told me she got to know about us through Wee Teck’s colleague Aloysius – Wee Teck attended Aloysius’ wedding in Jan this year. 8 mths later, it certainly was great to meet up with Aloysius at a wedding again, only difference was, he was seated throughout the dinner!
It was a while since I last sing at M hotel’s ballroom, and I was surprised to hear the excellent sound quality of its in-house system – I thought I was giving a concert (yes the system was THAT good). The staff and manager were very nice to us too – I think it’s important to have happy staff when we’re dealing with weddings!
The guests were a bit shy with their applause, but I suppose they did take to the music afterall because some of them came up to me for song requests towards the end of the performance!

Songs To Recommend
Just Because by Anita Baker – This is my all-time favourite, I can hear it in repeat forever. I felt like I’d struck lottery when Janice requested for this song:
