Kenny Khoo Story-Telling Music Showcase

A few days before the showcase, CK jie texted me and asked me along to Kenny Khoo (邱鋒澤) 's first ever music showcase here in Singapore.  Kenny is a local rookie singer who has just released his debut album in Taiwan back in April and topped the charts there. 
I saw his poster at the bus stop I commute to and from every day. So I sort of followed his Twitter account, not yet known that he acted in That Girl in Pinafore before his singer debut until I was reminded by Tselyn! 
The showcase is held at Beep Studios, located in the neighbourhood of Bukit Merah on the Friday before National Day (i.e. National Day eve!).  I also met up with Tselyn, her colleague Sam and Yyan (and of course CK jie) before the showcase and caught up a bit!

He began to rock the stage with 经典对白 from his latest album Ten Storeys. Although I can sense his nervousness, he managed to inject laughter and made his performance wonderful! 
He sang a number of songs from his album including 伤者、单人套房 、灵魂、关于我们. Since it is eve of National Day, he also did a cover of Home by Kit Chan! He also brought the atmosphere to the climax with 自由 by Chang Chen-yue!
From his album, I love the song 伤者 and 经典对白 ! Really great to be able to hear Kenny live! He had a fan-signing session right after the showcase. We managed to get a selfie (or a we-fie rather) with Kenny taken by none other than Kenny himself using CK's phone! Managed to squeeze myself in the frame!

Again, big thanks to CK jie for the invitation!
