  1. If you like singing, amateur or professional, this is a good chance for you to sing in front of an audience without the audience knowing who you are. Come take part in SHC first Facemask singing competition. Attractive prizes being planned.

    For audience, you will also get to participate. Identify as many Facemask singers as you can, and you too will get an attractive prize.

    Facemask singing competition aims to get you to know your SilverHairsClub friends, new or old. Event strictly for members only.

    If you wear a mask, you can’t sing properly. It will somewhat change the tone of your voice and it can sound muffled if the mask is not well made as it restricts the jaws’ movement. Unless you are making special masks to wear for singing.
    However, to each its own. If its for the novelty or the fun in the guessing game, why not? Just my two cents worth.

    • Caroline,

      We hope Facemask singing competition will of good entertainment value to participants and audience.
      The judging criteria is still worked out. I would say we are not looking for perfect singers. More looking for good and fun entertainers.

      Participants have enough time to look for a mask or making one homemade.

      We are on the lookout for judges.

        Exactly. If its more for the entertainment and fun derived from singing with masks on, then thats great. I am sure it will be entertaining and maybe somewhat hilarious at certain points.
        All the best!

  4. Thank you Terence. As it is about singing and performing, allow me to share something here?

    On this day in 2012, Chinese song lovers mourned as it was announced that another great star had passed on. It was reported that Ms Feng Fei Fei had died in January but delayed the announcement till February 12. It was a great loss to all her fans.

    In Remembrance – Feng Fei Fei – 1953 to 2012
    Share a song. She was singing on stage. Only 20 then :


    • Hi DanielC,

      I need your assistance. Can you identify a few karaoke places you have been to with a good selection of songs

      The criteria for the venue.
      1. Conveniently located.
      2. The music system need not be top class, as we are recording on mp4 format.
      3. Ability to take participants music disc.
      4. Can accommodate about 15 pax.
      5. Has WiFi.
      6. If it is affordable to you, we can take the place.

      Am thinking of having you manage the AV equipment, while competition is on. How about that?

      Terence Seah

  5. Noted with thanks, Terence. It is always my pleasure to deal with equipment. Audio video is my forte, if the place can provide us with what I think is necessary. Yes…the place…and looking at the criteria, #1 and #6 contradict each other; but shall try to achieve a compromise. Will need advice from other Karaoke frequent-goers.
