As we rolled up to the event venue, The Lawn at Marina Bay, choruses of familiar tunes filled the air. A sense of excitement amongst the people present, from volunteers to performers alike.
This was YMCA Proms @ The Park 2018. An annual affair by YMCA, encouraging corporations to be involved in corporate volunteerism. Through this event, beneficiaries and everyone was treated to a vibrant carnival featuring game booths, mini kids playground, picnic mats laid out across the green lush field and thoroughly entertaining interactive performances on stage.
Believer Music is proud to be a supporting partner as one of Singapore’s annually recognized events with Guest of Honour, Mr Desmond Lee (Minister for Social & Family Development & Second Minister for National Development). We were graciously invited to host a booth with Cajon and Ukulele mini tryouts and to be the opening act for the event. Our band, comprising of coaches kicked off the event with a powerful hit favourite ‘Stars’ by Switchfoot as the crowd began and fill up the Lawn.
By the time we hit our fourth number, ‘Just The Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars, a choir of voices from the audience cheerily sang along in full force. Great joy to witness people from all walks of life with different backgrounds and special needs unite in singing and swaying to the songs. Once again, music holds that uniqueness to bring people together.
Mini tryouts at our booth were opened to all. Learning a song with the fundamental beats and strums put smiles on the dozens of the young and old.
