Recently, the very good people of Nuffnang have been promoting on this particular online singing competition, organised by Dentyne who are looking to find out who would be the next internet sensation from Malaysia. As many you guys would know, I have been doing my fare share of music covers with the rest of TeamTehTarik members in the past so this would be an interesting competition for me to join!
So, in the past we have been working on several covers with the acoustic guitar, the ukulele as well as the piano however the requirement of this competition is slightly different. Instead, they would want auditions to be done in A Capella style with no musical instruments what so ever. Reason why this becomes a challenge is that there are so many great singers out there, it is really hard for me to really stand out. So after much deliberation and help for the rest of TeamTehTarik, we concocted a plan.
Using the old school musical styles of the "Doo-Wop" era, I decided to cover an oldie that many are familiar with. After hours and hours of singing and editing, this is what we got. Hope you guys enjoy the song!

So with all the great support that I got the last time I entered an online audition, I really hope this time I can get the same as well from all you! How this competition is going to run is quite simple:
Audition Period: 9 May 2011 - 30 May 2011
Webisode and Online Ranking Phase: 27 June 2011 - 22 July 2011
Grande Finale: 23 July 2011
So for now I guess what I need is just people to spread the word and if you like the video, just leave a comment or two! :D Lets hope things go well with this competition!
