Jun Xiong’s thoughts: You’re The Inspiration
The wedding season is upon us! I’m due to sing for three weddings in consecutive nights, and the first is Alvin and Jennifer’s wedding at Mandarin Oriental.
It was indeed my pleasure to perform for the loving couple. Jennifer was from Hong Kong, and she moved to Singapore a few years ago mainly because of Alvin. Hence, there were two emcees that evening — one who addressed the guests in Cantonese, while the other spoke in English.
The song list was also a representation of the couple’s varied influences and backgrounds, as it contained Cantonese numbers and a fair mix of jazz and pop. It was quite a challenge to perform all these songs, as I was singing some for the first time! Luckily, I had Ji Xiang, my long-time collaborator with me; it was also a joy to work with Brad, who infused the songs with a jazzy style which was a pleasure to my ears.
Congratulations Alvin and Jennifer, and thank you for engaging us to be a part of your special night!
