Around last National Day, there was so much happening in social media. Criticisms about the National Song, about our social degradation, political system & all...started me thinking...

So while waiting for National Day Parade to begin, when fiddling with my little baby ukulele, I began to ask...

"What makes me love Singapore?? Is it the convenience, the food, what is it?? I asked myself...Well it's home, it's familiarity, it's an indescribable feeling...

Is it the greenery? Amidst the strong juxtaposition of the hustle & bustle of the city? What is it that makes me a human being, a spiritual being constantly seeking that eternal sense of peace? 

So many reasons...so many reasons to love...

It's the mixed cultures, the harmony, sounds cliche but so true- it's being able to be who I want to be, it's being able to pursue & live my dream.

You're the reason I am me"

 

No matter what happens, I have great sentiments for this place, growing up here, it's an unbreakable bond...so no matter what, I am not going to be typical, just sit around & complain, I am going to put it into words & action!

I think we get stuck at that stage, hoping 'someone' in the right position will 'do something'. But it's really time we take matters into our own hands & do something about it, isn't it?

Because that's what Love makes you do, it motivates you, propels you into action!

So there many reasons why I am gonna 'Love You More... Singapore!'

These are my hopes, my dreams for a better Singapore...A kinder, gentler society, where people care for one another, help the needy, the poor, the disadvantaged, respect one another, where smiles are abundant, where people have hearts of gold not just hoard the gold... a land where people always lend a hand

This is my song, my new National Day Song for 2014 & beyond

 

 

Will you share my dream? Care to join me?

Was referred by word of mouth to emcee & sing for the PowerAce 25th Anniversary Dinner @ Shangri-La. Guests from all over the world came to celebrate their anniversary Gala

The management, staff & guests all seem to enjoy themselves...I let the pictures do the talking!

My friend Eugene contacted me one day & asked me if I was free to go down to Lee Ah Mooi on a holiday, Vesak Day, to entertain them...of course I never decline an offer to do so!

Little did I realise how much I love entertaining these old folks, putting a smile onto their faces, jolting their memories with my singing with the perennial  favourites.

(A big THANKS to photographer Adrian Ong for all these lovely memories http://www.facebook.com/lovemeetslens)

Alex Tan Singapore Singer Old Folks

There's even this auntie-Ah Ying 姐姐-i called her because she was dancing & singing along with me, instead of sitting in a wheelchair-so young & energetic at heart- I had to call her 'sister'... Everyone including the volunteers seem to enjoy themselves, laughing at my jokes as I disturbed her, even before I left she asked me to come back again!! Awww....

Plus this uncle we called the No 1 Fan, who shouted "Encore Encore!!" all the way-he left such an impression too!!

 

With the ever increasing number of elderly in Singapore, it's no wonder old folks' homes have their hands full. It's kind folks like Eugene & friends who make an immense effort to pull together time effort & money to help the home that make Singapore a kinder gentler more caring society! Way to go my dear friends!!! 

 

Eugene --You can always count me in to make that day a little more special!

Sorry I had to rush off without taking this group picture but I have my aged father to take care at home too! So join you all next time ya!!!

That's Eugene the kindhearted soul & Juvena with the lovely sweet voice who sang & entertained the folks too!

Emceeing a Dealers Night seems to be one of those challenges professional emcees face. As the guests come from different companies, these bosses of the distributors may not necessarily click with each other like the ordinary staff in a dinner setting. 

So the trick is always to maintain some form of dignity when it comes to an awards night- to balance it well with a good command of English & Mandarin, with a desirable sprinkle of dialects such that it makes them feel at home. Especially so when I belt out familiar tunes, I love the pleasant surprised looks on their faces!

Singapore Emcee Alex Tan Dealer's Night

I particularly enjoy the reaction I get with such a tough crowd, especially when they give me a thumbs-up from the table where they are seated, letting me know I have done a great job singing & entertaining them as well as making them laugh.

Had such great fun bantering with local comedian Michelle Yeo 郑荔芬 also known as "一大粒“ We made a lady laugh non-stop for minutes amongst the guests. Think we did our part there to entertain & 搞笑!

MD & Management are happy, the guests enjoyed themselves...another pat on the back I have to give myself with the passing of each event!

Pharrell Williams is a formidable force in pop music. With Grammies, a Oscar nomination & No 1 Hits on the Pop Charts around the world, the credits are not just impressive, they are incredible! I don't just admire such musical ingenuity but the ability to make it to the top of his game, that is simply inspirational to me.

Covered his worldwide hit, which earn him a No 1 Hit & an Oscar nomination from the movie. But unlike the music mogul, I only have a decent budget of zero dollars hahaha...so I filmed it at my HDB block's very own playground, with my neighbours staring at me. Some with curious eyes & bewilderment; some with a smile because they know I am an entertainer, doing my thing!

So enjoy my high budget music video everyone! & Stay Happy...always!

 

I have been asked to be a mentor on Singapore Kindnesss Movement's Melody of Hope Songwriting Contest. So they asked me to sing one of my compositions called "Love You More Singapore" & share 3 simple tips on how I go about writing a song...

Yes indeed, I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to mentor & inspire the next generation of young songwriters in the local music scene. To inspire them to do something good- to create a kinder, gentler Singapore!  What a noble idea!

Growing up here, I can't help but lament how Singaporeans tend to get caught up in figures & the economy rather than the other more valuable, intrinsic qualities of life. So one National Day, while sitting waiting for the National Day Parade to start, while fiddling with my little baby ukulele, I came up with this song.

So I hope we can really do more for our beloved country, not just always sit & complain. But think about what needs to be done & try to do more by drawing upon the positive aspects, preserving them & realising the Singapore we want by helping to mould the society through action. Simply because Action speaks louder than words!

Don't you agree???

So why don't you join me??

Grease the Musical is coming to town!!!

The love story, the characters, the music & the moves...WOW I'm sure it's going to be quite a treat!

I remember growing up watching this movie starring John Travolta & Olivier Newton John. The music & dancing left such a impression in me that little did I knew years later, as an entertainer myself, I get to perform these catchy memorable musical numbers like Summer Nights, Grease Lightning & We Go Together. Honestly, I enjoy choroegraphing & producing the show as much as I love performing the numbers.

Grease Musical Singapore Singer Alex 2014

This is a Grease & Rockin' 50's segment featuring the BP staff for their annual Dinner & Dance with a Rockin 50's theme. 

I was sick with flu & running a fever but was blessed that I managed to perform without a hitch!

Yes I also had a hard time trying to convince the client that the movie starring John Travolta although came out in 1970's the story was set in the 1950's. True enough I was right!!!

It was originally a musical set in the year 1959!

Grease Musical Singapore Singer Alex 2014

Besides performing the numbers myself, I also get to train staff like the Aviva Staff who performed for their 2014 annual awards segment this year! They did so well they made me proud!

Getting the flu is like a spiritual journey for me. Why? You might ask. 

Well, just imagine -one moment, you are up & about; the next moment, you feel like your entire body has been ripped apart- you can hardly breathe, you can't taste anything, you are running a fever, yet you feel chilly, your skin crawls & you feel like you have been possessed by the devil. Yes, it is like an entire being has decided to take over you whole system, from the inside.

Sounds medieval, archaic or a regression in thought process? I beg to differ. It seems like as we so-called society progress with stronger medications & all, the flu continues to thrive, getting stronger with time. The more antibiotics or whatever we throw at it, the stronger it becomes. Doesn't it seem like there's always a higher power?

 

Shell Eastern Petroleum A Shift D&D was organised by my friend Kenzie, at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre. 

The theme being "Bow & Tie" -I thought I look kinda cool in the grey & silver ensemble, accented by the pink bow tie.

Singapore Singer Emcee Alex Tan Shell D&D 2014

I must say--- the crowd was simply a delight to entertain! They looked like they enjoyed my singing segment as I sang oldies such as "Fly Me To The Moon" & "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" Even my original song "Sweet Sweet Love" was met with great enthusiasm as I dedicated to a elderly gentlemen & his wife. 

The most memorable moment, however, has to be when I sang "月亮代表我的心” for a loving couple who have been together for 41 years, imagine that!!! 41 loving years--- they hugged & kissed as I sang as if the song was written for them... Although I have emcee-d & sung for many wedding celebrations which i enjoy too, it's for newly weds. So it was simple magical for me to witness such affection, especially for a couple married for so many years!!!

I also sang P Ramlee's "Getaran Jiwa" to the Malay audience which was received with such warm applause.

Plus the kids too were so enthralled as I entertained them with Jason Mraz "I'm Yours" which ended the segment so appropriately on a cheerful positive note.

Kenzie's Boss had such great things to say, I was so relieved that I did not disappoint my friend. Phew!!!

So a little pat on the back for a job well done & it's time to rest before the Chinese New Year holiday season begins!

Being bilingual, I was asked to I host in English & Mandarin for Chang Cheng 30th Anniversary Dinner today at Swissotel Stamford room for an amazingly huge crowd. The event started at 10pm which is unusually late, ended at 3am...just imagine that!!!

Was asked to host mostly in Mandarin due to the audience profile.

Special guests includes cast from "Ah Boys To Men" to Michael Jackson Impersonator. With 43 Long Service Awards to be given out, this must be the longest award segment I have ever done!

What a late event this was! Something I will remember for a long long time!
