Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Lucky

I’ve known Jad for more than a decade, and it was a true joy to attend his wedding dinner. Jad had initially not wanted a live band for his wedding dinner (I was cool about it of course) but strangely, he and Jaymee engaged a 4-pc band (with percussion) in the end! Looks like he likes to either not do it at all, or do it with style… 🙂

To top it off, Jad and Jaymee had planned to sing the 2nd march-in song ‘Lucky’ together. I was nervous for a friend whose singing voice I had never heard of, and Jaymee’s singing part was challenging as she had to sing the harmony. During the rehearsal, my worries were totally put to rest. It was surprising that they could sing so well despite the nerves they felt! It’s talent that made them wow the crowd with the song, but it’s definitely destiny and good luck that led them to find a soulmate in each other:

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

There were two songs which I really love from their selection,  and I think Josephine did an incredible job with them:

After All (Peter Cetera & Cher)

And this funky number by Bill Withers – Just The Two of Us

I also took the opportunity to dedicate a song to them with my original song – <<当我八十岁>> (When I’m 80)

Thanks Jad and Jaymee, we’re happy you like what you heard!

And they looked totally smashing together (check out their mind-blowing wedding shots in Greece), and here’s A Little Dream wishing them a marriage filled with love, joy and wonderful blessings.
