So...What to say? I'm 17 and born and raised Chinese. With Cantonese as my native tongue one might question why I mainly sing Mandarin Songs. Well to answer that question, I honestly don't know. Maybe it's because half my family is Mandarin or maybe it is because they are more abundant? Who knows *shrugs* I am here just to have fun recording and sharing music with other people!
I auditioned for Concert Chorus in 4th grade and I made it and it started from there. Then i joined Show Choir in 8th grade where we would go to competitions. Those were fun...we usually places first or second *wink wink* Then I entered high school and decided it wasn't for me. Then i got into it again last year in my junior year =] when i tried out for Carousel it was just so fun and the rush and adrenaline from performing in a live audience sparked my interest again.
Well only in school performances and competitions
hmm... this is a toughie... my influences come from the music i grown up listening to (chinese- canto and mandarin) and seeing it evolving to what it is today.
