Hsin Yeow’s thoughts – 你的名字我的姓氏 (Your Name, My Surname)
The story goes that Kathleen was mesmerised by Alvin’s voice one day when both of them were at a karaoke joint.
Alvin sang 你的名字我的姓氏 (Your Name, My Surname), a moving ballad with beautiful lyrics and a soaring melody.
I particularly like the simplicity of the chorus:
(From now on, I have no worries or desires)
(My story may be simple, but because you’re in it
(It is enough)
The couple’s friends were so sure of Alvin’s ability to sing under pressure that they only told us of their plan to surprise him just before we started our performance! And when the surprise was announced, Alvin did a double take, but recovered quickly and rose to the challenge.
I could see Kathleen’s face blush in happiness as Alvin began to sing. She looked overjoyed as Alvin serenaded her with his strong and clear voice. When he finished, the audience gave a few rounds of thunderous applause!
Bevlyn and I had a great time performing with Ein Ein and Feri. The musicians’ chemistry was finely honed after numerous performances together, and their different styles of playing complemented each other well.
Congratulations Kathleen and Alvin! Thank you for engaging us. Alvin, we’ll call you if we need another male singer for Cantonese songs, okay?
