(Wedding) Dennis and Joanne, 6 Sep 08, Peach Garden, OCBC Centre

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: The Way I Am

Joanne’s sister: I knew something was fishy when Joanne wanted to go jogging one day. I later realised that it’s because Dennis likes girls with slim legs!

Joanne’s performance of The Way I Am (by Ingrid Michaelson) will remain etched in my memory for a long time to come.

Several things about the performance made it memorable. The fact that it was spontaneous, for one. Joanne mentioned it once to her Hannah, her indefatigable wedding planner from Heaven’s Gift, who duly conveyed this to me. She probably forgot about her request, but I didn’t. I reminded Joanne when I met her for the first time on her wedding day, and she agreed without a moment’s hesitation.

When asked why she chose the song, she said, “It’s short!” And then she gave a simple and heartfelt rendition that touched everybody. Dennis, the devoted groom, could not contain his emotions, and bounded (I kid you not, he leapt right up in the air as if he launched off from a mini-trampoline) onstage to give his beautiful bride a passionate kiss. Take a listen to this song, which I highly recommend at any wedding:


Congratulations Joanne and Dennis! Thank you for engaging us for your lovely wedding!

Band: Hsin Yeow, Hui Bing, Edward, Mario

I am a new convert to the pairing of a keyboardist and bassist, which makes the music richer and more grounded. Especially when you have musicians as talented as Edward and Mario!
