The champion of Karaoke was crowned among the 10 finalists at the NUSS Karaoke Competition and gala dinner on 14 April 2023 at Della & Seng Gee Guild Hall, Kent Ridge Guild House.
Member Mr Low Chee Sing’s polished performance so impressed the panel of judges comprising Ms Jacintha Abisheganaden, Ms Priscilla Phang and Ms Esrine Neo, that he walked away with the first prize of $800 cash and trophy. Second and third prize winners – Associate Professor Lee Boon Keng and Mr Ho Hoi San, received $400 and $200 cash prizes and trophy respectively. The rest of the contestants were also awarded a trophy each for their participation in the competition where they had emerged from pre-qualifying rounds and special vocal training leading up to the finals.
Spearheaded by Mr Jeffrey Khoo who is the Chairperson of the F&B Sub-Committee and supported by the F&B team from Secretariat, the event was a pleasant déjà vu for members as the last NUSS Karaoke Competition was organised 10 years ago. This time round, the competition was held at the newly renovated Guild Hall. Kudos to the rest of the organising committee comprising Ms Belinda Lee, Mr Lim Shoo Hoe, Mr Mark Chin, Mr Nelson Lee and Ms Voo Siew Fong.
Spirits were also high among the fellow members who came to support the participants as well as tuck into delectable fare at the gala dinner.
Sweet memories, everyone!
