a few veteran singers remained unchallenged in the music industry, not because they can sing well, but because they immerse themselves into the music when they sing. we call that musicality. in that aspect, they are unsurpassed.
bobby chen sheng, deanie yip tuck han, lowell lo kun ting， jonathan lee to name but a few.
they don't have good pitching to start with; they don't have wide vocal range; they don't have great tone but they just make music. music that touches your heart and melt you instantly. music that makes you cry.
they sing with their hearts, they tell stories that they experienced in their lives, stories that young singers would not have.
in their music and lyrics, you find life's philosophy, profound and wise thoughts, poetic musings, it makes you realize listening to music is more than listening to vocals and chorus.
they bring music appreciation to another level. we love them endlessly.
this just happened two days ago. deannie yip won multiple best actress awards. this is her tribute to all those great movie stars, past and present
this one - a tribute by lowell lo and jonathan li to all those musicians and singers who passed away - makes me cry every time.
the inimitable bobby chen. his music is so very narcissistic but that's him through and through
