Zhaowei & Angelia, 7 Jan 18, Swissotel Stamford (Wedding Live Band & Emcee)

I thought that I had seen it wrongly, but no, the tissue paper from the waiter was meant for the groom. Zhaowei is no ordinary groom. Let me explain how he spoilt the market for everyone present that day.

(Band: Bevlyn (vocals), Sharon (Piano)

But let’s start from the very beginning. For all the wedding ‘duties’ Angelia and Zhaowei had to undertake, the selection of songs was entrusted to Zhaowei. The 400+ songs in our master repertoire were not daunting for Zhaowei, in fact he took pleasure in listening to every single song for at least one minute, before he came up with his selection of 22 songs!!

Zhaowei Sings

The big day was especially unnerving for Zhaowei because he had planned to sing not just one, but two songs! The first was ‘You Raise Me Up‘, seamlessly incorporated into his wedding speech right after he had expressed his gratitude to his parents. Sharon started playing the intro for the song right on cue and ‘catch’ him once he started singing (we love doing spontaneous things like this!)

The second song was this very challenging but very apt song called ‘For Good‘. The song is not easy at all, as it involves changing of keys, but Zhaowei hit all the right notes. The lyrics give me goosebumps every time I read or hear them, and I think that they can’t be more suitable to be performed to your spouse on your wedding day:

“I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good”
(Incidentally this was the first musical they watched together)

Needless to say, everyone cheered 🙂

The lovebirds have a special love for South Korea, and had gotten Bevlyn to perform these 2 Korean songs to kick start set 1 and 2 of their performances.

(This Love by Davichi, OST of Descendants of The Sun)

(You’re The One by Kim Bo Kyung, OST of Pinocchio)

And lo and behold, a groom (Peter) whom we had performed for 8 years ago came up to say hi!! Turned out that Zhaowei was at Peter and Sandy‘s wedding 8 years ago, and that was how he got to hear Bevlyn ‘live’.
