Huishi’s career in music entertainment took off at the age of 17 when she became an Assistant Producer for Mr Lee Shih Song (李偲菘）and Mr Lee Wei Song (李伟菘). On top of her production work, Huishi is an active performing artiste for corporate and grassroots events and dedicates time to perform at various charities too.
You name it and Huishi's done it. She has sung and hosted at road shows for commercial banks, Singapore Community Clubs, dinner/dance gatherings, private clubs, baby shows, Chinese festivals, charity events and a pioneer generation get-together.
Adding to her portfolio she participated and won the 2008 Duo Dynamic Talent Competition organized by Singapore Press Holdings and UFM100.3 and has released 2 albums to date.
She accomplished her biggest achievement in 2013 when she held her first concert at the Kallang Theater on the 5th of May 2013 and donated 50% of the proceeds to a charitable organization to help buy and distribute 3,000 bags of rice, noodles, biscuits and other essentials to the 3000 helpless elderly who stay alone in one room flats. A further $5.00 will be donated to the cause with every purchase of her new oldies album 《从心出发 》. Talk of versatility, she is without doubt one of our most promising young stars on our island today.
When I wrote to Huishi recently to find out what her favourite evergreens were, she mentioned a few like, "Yesterday Once More, Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough, Oh Carol, Rhythm of the Rain, The Young Ones, Eternal Flames and Seven Lonely Days." I am surprised that she is even familiar with goldies from the 50s.
"What about your personal likes and dislikes if you wish to discuss them?" I asked.
"I love Taiwan! Love cats... dogs..., the colours pink, white, red and green. I love singing... and now I'm trying to improve my English and also improve on my skill in singing and hosting. I hope to be able to sing from different genres and in different languages."
"Anything else that you might want to tell readers about yourself?" No. Hardly one to talk about herself she did not fill in most of the blanks on the email questionnaire.
Looking at her workspace and audiences one could tell Huishi is well-accepted in, what former PM Goh Chok Tong called, "the heartlands". She is a true-blue Singaporean and able to gel with the local public. Isn't it time then to provide her more blue skies so she can soar through the air and spaceship to stardom?
Having met Huisi some years back when she was in her teens I know her to be a bright lass and one with quiet confidence. Mostly shy and unassuming, the spark within her ignited when she found her niche as an entertainer and made her what she is on stage today. Perseverance is the key to her present success. Congratulations Huishi. All the best for a fruitful career in show business!
