當初是什麼令你喜歡上音樂/唱歌? 自小受母親的影響喜歡音樂,特別是爵士樂及流行歌

當宣佈你入選了八強,你有什麼感想? 非常興奮

對這個比賽有什麼期望? 很期待於一個大型舞台上表演,認識不同參賽者與他們一起享受這個旅程,每一個經驗都會是一個好的人生閱歷

希望透過這比賽得到什麼? 希望體驗一下於大型舞台上表演的感覺,雖然我有點害怕但這次將會是一個好好的學習機會,我好想綀好普通話。

會怎樣去準備這個比賽? 我將會報讀普通話和唱歌課程,多做運動對唱歌好有幫助。

音樂對你的影響有多少? 我在音樂、藝術和娛樂方面,建立了自己的職業生涯,如可以成為一名娛樂律師和幕後製作人,我會感到開心。但現在我有機會嘗試成為一名表演者,我不想錯過這個機會。這就像是一份禮物,是我從來不敢做夢擁有的禮物。

將來在音樂上有什麼抱負? 於多倫多Jazz Bar 表演, 希望可以在自己的音樂融合亜洲元素。

What made you like music/singing? My mother loved music. I grew up listening to music all the time (mostly jazz and old pop songs)

When it is announced that you were in the final eight, what do you think? My singing partner Henry got the call from Fairchild and texted me that we are in as finalists. We  so happy!

What are your expectations for this contest? I’ve never been part of big singing contest before, so I am excited to see what it would be like, and whom I’ll meet throughout the journey. I’m just very excited and honored to be part of it. Every experience is good experience.

What do you hope to get through this contest? I want to learn what it is like to sing in front of big audience. I am still somewhat afraid of being on stage, and don’t have much experience. I think it would be a great chance for me to learn how to perform in front of a lot of people and how to communicate with them through a song. I also want to improve my Mandarin a lot!

How will you prepare for this contest? I plan to take Mandarin lessons and vocal lessons more seriously. I find that workout helps me sing better!

How much does music affect you? It seems like I just can’t get away from music even if I tried. I built my whole career around music, arts, and entertainment, believing that being a supporter of the arts as an entertainment lawyer and a behind-the-stage person would keep me happy. But now that I was given an opportunity to try out being an artist myself, I don’t want to miss this opportunity. It’s like a gift I never dared to dream of.

What are your ambitions for music in the future? I want to start out by singing at Toronto jazz bars. If I am given an opportunity, I want to create my own music by merging Asian element (e.g. Asian pop songs or folk songs) with jazz elements and create an interesting mix of the East and the West.

當初是什麼令你喜歡上音樂/唱歌? 我很小就開始學唱歌了。有一次上完小提琴課,有一位聲樂老師說我的聲音音色很好,讓我試唱一下。他彈琴,我沒什麼歌會唱的,於是唱了首生日歌……

後來就開始唱歌劇和中國民樂。課下我自己琢磨流行樂

當宣佈你入選了八強,你有什麼感想很高興這個夏天又有跟工作無關的事情搞了

對這個比賽有什麼期望? 享受比賽過程和與新認識的朋友相處的時間

希望透過這比賽得到什麼希望可以認識更多志同道合的朋友

 會怎樣去準備這個比賽不去多想這是人個比賽。多和搭擋練習比賽的歌曲,最重要的是可以將音樂玩起來,享受夏日天氣

音樂對你的影響有多少每天至少有10小時都有音樂在身邊

將來在音樂上有什麼抱負希望可以出一張翻唱專輯

What made you like music/singing? I started learning to sing when I was young. Once I finished a violin lesson, my vocal teacher said that my voice was very good and let me try it out. However, I had no idea of what to sing, so I sang the birthday song.  Later, I began singing operas, Chinese folks and pop songs.

When it is announced that you were in the final eight, what do you think? I am so glad that I’ve got something to do which is not related to work this summer.

What are your expectations for this contest? To enjoy the process of the entire contest and the time gathering with new friends

What do you hope to get through this contest? To meet some friends that have common interest

How will you prepare for this contest? Do not consider that this is a competition. The most important thing is to enjoy music as well as the summer weather.

How much does music affect you? I am surrounded by music at least 10 hours a day.

What are your ambitions for music in the future? To have my cover album in the future
