SE7EN wows S'pore fans - Nov 27 2010 (Strait Times News)

Korean R&B/pop mega star Se7en landed his foot at Mandarin Gallery
(Singapore) on 26 Nov 10 night. Invited by Singtel to Singapore 
for the exclusive launch of Samsung Galaxy Tab, he
gave a REALLY CRAZY performance to the public.

It was my first time to see him live here in Singapore.
What's even cooler is that I was able to test-record the
performance with my professional ZOOM Q3 recording
device! No restrictions in recording the performance at all!
Se7en Fans behind me were all screaming for him!!!

I simply waved my Se7en CD "MUST LISTEN" high
in the sky to show some support and cheer for such
a diligent and talented artist. His energetic and
engaging performance simply just blew everyone
off stage.

Me & Se7en Album "MUST LISTEN"
Obviously his strong vocals, slick dance moves &
stage presence were simply irresistible.

Did I mention that he commented "I didn't know that
Singapore women like this HOT after his La La La song performance?" 
Such a wonderful man in the eyes of the ladies, isn't he? ;)

He spoke English pretty well. I guess its due to his stay in USA
to develop his music career.

Let's give support to this great artist. I wish
that he can come to Singapore to give his
own gig/concert performance in future.

Now the Mandarin Gallery Se7en performance 
videos are in the uploading process for Se7en fans
and other music lovers to know about him.

Too bad...my freelance photographer was not around
to take good shots of Se7en.

Se7en fans out there! If u have any comments
about his Singapore performance or videos & pictures
to share, feel free to drop comments, videos and pics here!

HORDES of screaming fans turned up at the Mandarin Gallery on Friday to see K-pop star SE7EN in his first Singapore performance.

SE7EN wowed the Orchard crowd with his five of his latest hits like Digital Bounce and Passion during the open-air concert, held to celebrate the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

'SE7EN is a huge Korean megastar, there were several hundred people at the event,' said Mr Dylan Tan, Corporate Communications Manager at SingTel, which gave the first 150 customers to purchase the 7-inch Galaxy Tab VIP tickets for the performance.

SE7EN, whose real name is Choi Dong Wook, has a successful singing career, with hit songs in Korean, Japanese and English. He also played the lead role in the Korean drama Goong S, a spin-off of the show Goong (Princess Hours).

The Samsung Galaxy Tab, currently exclusive to SingTel, uses Google's Android OS, and is one of several challengers to Apple's iPad in the tablet computer market.

Have u ever wonder if singing or music provides
therapeutic effect towards our own well-being
and health?
Here's a chance for u to find out in this
HARMONIC OVERTONE SINGING Workshop
in Nov 10:

Overtone singing, also known as overtone chanting, or harmonic singing, is a type of singing in which the singer manipulates the resonances (orformants) created as air travels from the lungs, past the vocal folds, and out the lips to produce a melody.

This technique allows the Singer to produce more than a single pitch at one time.

Overtone Singing is best known to shift the vocalist and listener to a higher states of consciousness quickly. It has been researched and recommended for its effectiveness on healing the physical body, organs and cells into alignment of harmony and relaxation.

This unique toning technique been practiced for long time by the Mongolians, Tuvans, Tibetians (Throat Singing/Undertones) and Japanese (Hokkaido).

Am excited and honored to be able to offer this technique to people who are interested to experience Overtone Singing.
