Daniel’s thoughts: I Wish You Jesus

The wedding dinner was so romantic, from the story of how Joel and Li Yi met each other and how the groom dedicated his own original song to his beloved bride.

There was also one special song requested by the couple’s friend, Eileen. The song was I Wish You Jesus. All of us in the band shared the same thought: that it’s really a good blessing song. True enough, Melissa’s performance not only touched the couple, but moved us as well.

We really enjoyed performing at the wedding, because we all loved to play jazz standards (which was what Joel and Li Yi chose). Although I seldom meet Melisa (vocalist) and Wah ong (Bassist), we had great chemistry together. I also had fun playing with Edmund, a nice and friendly saxophonist. (P.S. It was my first performance with him, and I found that we share the same sense of humour!)

Congratulations, Joel and Li Yi!

Compliments from couple’s friend, Eileen:

Hi Hsin Yeow,

Please kindly thank Melissa again for her kind help with the singing of my requested song last Saturday.

I love her version of “I Wish You Jesus!”

🙂 and yes, it was wonderful to hear her sing during my friend’s wedding 🙂

Thanks and when I get married, I will like to engage her again 🙂
