Super 10 Golden Voice Challenge has successfully concluded. We wish Claudia the best of luck in his/her future musical endeavors.
Super Ten 2014 Golden Voice Challenge brings together the best voices in Vancouver. Aged from 30-70, the contestants perform with unique personalities, a variety of languages and genres. For the past month and a half, they have been working hard to prepare for the final challenge, taking place on April 13th. Fairchild TV has the honor to invite evergreen artiste William Hu from Hong Kong as the special guest performer and judge for this exciting battle. William started his career at the age of 15 as a finalist at the first Hong Kong New Talent Singing Awards 30 years ago. Standing at 6’2”, handsome and charismatic William has always been tremendously supported by fans in Hong Kong, especially during the days as a member of Little Tiger Group. He was one of the first hosts of Hong Kong MTV program ‘Can’t Stop the Music’ and ‘Sunday Song Request’ while acting in television dramas and movies. When William was 30 years old, he left behind all that had been achieved in the entertainment industry to start a new life in England. In 2007, William, who had been away for nearly 10 years, decided to return to Hong Kong to care for his aging parents. Since then, William has actively engaged himself in charity works and was appointed as the ambassador for Caritas Hong Kong from year 2007-2010. In 2012 William held a concert in Hong Kong and released an album in which he covered golden oldies from popular female singers, followed by another album, the title song of which ‘Playful Child’ was dedicated to his parents who acted like playful children because of dementia.
When William entered onto the press conference stage, he was welcome by passionate cheers and applause. He told MC Mandy Chan that he rushed to Vancouver after recently wrapping up a TVB drama as Officer Geomancer. Even so, he expressed his excitement for his first time performance in Vancouver and invited fans to look forward to enjoying both new songs and golden oldies on Sunday. William has always been enthusiastic about cooking, thus is anticipating trying out the gourmet cuisine in Vancouver. He was so amazed by the beautiful cherry blossoms blooming everywhere throughout the city that he joked if he had landed in Kyoto by mistake. Aside from his singing talent, everyone was interested in knowing the secret behind William’s never aging appearance. The secret is simple according to William: get plenty of sleep, stick with a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and keep a charitable mindset.
As a veteran of the New Talent Singing Awards and a judge of this year’s Super 10 Contest, William shared some winning tips with the 10 contestants, reminding them to keep calm and give it their personal best. Lastly, Vice President of Fairchild Media Group, Louis Tong and the 10 finalists presented William with a cake as a belated celebration for his birthday the day before when he was still on his way to Vancouver. William was thrilled to receive such a pleasant surprise and felt blessed even though he was so far away from home.
William Hu will bring to fans an exciting performance full of wonderful music in River Rock Show Theatre at Super Ten Final which will be broadcast on Fairchild Television on April 13th at 9:05pm.
In previous Super 10 Contests, a variety of talented MCs and artistes were discovered. Last year’s competition disregarded all borders between age, language, ethnicity and song, hence was met with overwhelming responses from audiences who were especially impressed by the ‘Golden Voice Group’. The contestants in this group were born before the year 1980, ranging from age 30-70 with a variety of backgrounds. But when it came to singing, each contestant worked their hardest to show off themselves through their songs each with a unique taste and personality. In addition, special guest performer Mimi Chu was the highlight with her sweet voice and professional judging making last year’s Super 10 Contest the talk of the town.
During the process of the competition, members of the Golden Voice group were able to step out of banal everyday routines and chase their dreams, not something that everyone has the courage to do. They were not only able to do just that, but they were also given the chance to assure themselves of their amazing talents, endorsing the fact that everyone has a dream which can be realized.
Winner Theresa Liang (new immigrant, aged 36) – "It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on such a glamorous stage."
Most Charismatic Award winner Saiko Ikejo (Japanese, aged 52) – "I was so fortunate to have been given this opportunity to break cultural barriers and perform Chinese songs."
Benny (truck driver, aged 43) – "I entered into the Hong Kong New Talent Singing Awards when I was young. The needs of everyday life later buried my singing passion. Today I am able to once again ignite the fire!"
Amy (housewife, aged 48) – "To be able to meet these lifelong friends was a wonderful experience!" Kris (designer, aged 39) – "My passion for singing has not subsided since I was top 8 in New Talent Singing Awards 2000."
Eddie Tsun (retired nurse, aged 62) – "I am able to bring happiness to residents in nursing homes and joy into my own life by doing what I love to do."
Mary Yao (grandmother, aged 65) – "As a grandmother, at my age, it was wonderful to be given this chance to showcase my talents on stage!"
The end of the Super 10 Contest was not the end of glory for these Golden Voice group contestants. After the competition, many of them were invited back to perform for various shows hosted by Fairchild TV. Theresa Liang and Saiko Ikejo performed at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant 2013 while Theresa, Benny’s Angels, Eddie Tsun, and Esaine Mo participated at the Year of the Horse Countdown Show in Aberdeen Centre. These passionate, life-loving individuals truly deserve a round of applause for their great efforts.
