Finance Minister Lawrence is also Deputy Prime Minister from today.

"He's good on the guitar and a natural on stage!"  It's the general remark among some Singapore music makers, that he could probably make a living as a music maker. That's Lawrence Wong, the presumptive Prime Minister of Singapore, actually a pop star already on the political stage.

It was announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in mid-April 2022 that Finance Minister Wong would lead the 4G team and become the next PM in succession if the party wins the next election. 

But mine isn't a political blog so the focus will be on his ability to sing and play the guitar. Let's hope he carries on doing so.

He not only sings Western pops but does justice to the Chinese songs too.

There will be a few postings on Mr. Wong. So watch out for them.

Before Lawrence Wong there was Tan Soo Khoon, 
another rockin' politician who plays the guitar and sings Elvis.

HI TERENCE,

I'm really not into any political discussion on this music blog, Malaysian or otherwise;
perhaps we'll just confine our chat to music as I just find it interesting that we have a minister who's a pop singer.

THANKS.

"If music be the food of love then play on" so the saying goes and politics or not if the man loves music then he is on the right track of life.

I remember Mr Lawrence Wong was the Guest of Honour at the Quests concert in Queenstown CC in Sept 2013. He attended the first of the three shows. I attended the second show on a Sunday afternoon.

hi, thanks for the piece of information. That was nearly 10 years ago. He is known for his versatility on the guitar.

Hi Andy, greetings from your neighbour. Your blog has been an amazing read for me. You wrote tons of stuffs which are related to the event I am organising currently. First and foremost, I am Mizan from People Of Remarkable talents (PORT), Ipoh, Malaysia. I tried to contact you via your twitter account but could not find the direct message button.

For your info, PORT will be organising the 4th Ipoh Music Symposium (IMS) with the theme '1960s Pop: Evolution, Revolution and Legacy'. The event consists of symposium, workshops, performances, forums, exhibitions, discussions and other pockets events related to music in the 1960's. Participants ranges from academics, researchers, writers, music industry players and also music enthusiasts.

Similar to the previous IMS, all presented papers during the symposium will be published in a book after the event ends. I am also in contact with Elizabeth a.k.a Liz, late Joe Chin's widow as she will be writing a book about The Fabulous Falcons and it's going to be launched during the event. We are also trying to get in touch with Joseph Pereira to invite him to take part in our event too.

You can reach me via ipohmusicsymposium@gmail.com or mizansamsudin@gmail.com if you are interested to participate. Thank you for spending your time reading this.

Best regards,
Mizan

I have written to Mizan immediately in May but he has not replied for a long time. I guess the symposium is all over now.
