The first step towards success
Although the eight finalists of the Unforgettable Classics Singing Contest can carry some amazing tunes, the ultimate key to winning the grand prize is picking the right song to sing. In order to aid the contestants in this difficult choice, Fairchild TV invited famous Hong Kong musician, Duck Lau, to be the Music Consultant for the competition and help the contestants analyze and pick out the song best suited for each of them. The contestants had the chance to perform their song choice for Duck who Duck meticulously pointed out each of their strengths and taught the contestants how to bring out their best voices while performing.
Who will be the one to select the right song and win the judges’ hearts? Find out during the Final on June 20th at the River Rock Show Theatre!
