Jean-Paul and Stacey, 22 May 2010, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: I Believe

This is probably the wedding which I perform songs in the most number of languages, specifically, I took up the courage to learn a Korean song – ‘I Believe’, made popular by the Korean movie ‘My Sassy Girl’.  It was a bit unnerving, I had to admit!

On the actual day when I arrive for soundcheck, curiosity drove me to read the name cards placed on the rows of long tables. To my surprise, 2 of the cards were written ‘Jean-Paul’s oncle’, and ‘Jean-Paul’s tantan’. This discovery led my band and I into an intense debate of whether the groom is French and or if the bride is Korean. I kinda like this suspense, heh!

And so the mystery was unveiled during the couple’s speech. Jean-Paul’s father is Mauritius-Chinese, and his mum is Korean, which explains the multitude of languages he speaks. That, according to Stacey, is also one of the reasons why she fell for him. Under the teasing of the 2 bubbly friends who were also the emcees, Jean-Paul thanked his father in French, his mother in Korean, and Stacey’s father in Mandarin. But everyone was most bowled over when he was asked to thank Stacey’s mum in Hokkien, to which he said a simple ‘Gamsia’.

And just when the couple thought that they could return to their seats, the emcees struck up a ‘sabo’ for the groom again. Jean-Paul was requested to sing ‘月亮代表我的心’ (The moon represents my heart) to his bride in front of all the guests, but he took up the challenge readily. It was all for good fun, but I’m sure it will serve very fond memories for the lovely couple even many years from now.

We wish Jean-Paul and Stacey all the best in their marital journey, and congratulations once again!
