Life has kept me busy the past few months... choreographing, performing and training new artists... so keeping it short but picture sweet here's a quick catch up...
An intensive 3 months working with the singer for her performance training. She went from a nervous and shy young girl who couldn't move a hand while singing and was petrified of dancing to her first full blown concert at Star Hall in December. Like a proud mama I had tears in my eyes watching her :)
We did 3 months of one on one training and 2 music videos together... 想講你知 & Game Over. I've also heard she just won an award for Best Live Performer!! My second Best Performer award winning artist :) After working with Sergey Lazarev for his concert tour he also went on to win MTV Russia's Best Live Performer 2008!
My newest and most exciting project is the upcoming launch of Race Wong as a solo artist. This is our first Asian artist as Kelvin and I establish our Artist Development company in HK, working alongside Jon @ This Music Studio, Spencer Douglass, Business Manager, and Arne and Jonas.
Race is stunning, no matter what time of day or mood, she is simply stunning, but she is also talented and a very hard worker. We're busy putting together a hot new sound, something that's not been done before in HK, a sexy more edgy image, and overall developing a sophisticated yet quirky performer. I'd give you a sneak preview but I'm not allowed!! Maybe I can slip in something in a few weeks.... here's a few pics of us at the very beginning...
Happy Anniversary M1NT
I choreographed and performed in an eclectic show for M1NT's anniversary. With a trashy circus theme we featured 3 very different dance sets, singer Gretchell Yaneza, aerial artists and hosted by Simon Yin. Dancers were all teachers from Central Dance Studios. We're currently looking for sponsors, venues, other opportunities, so anyone interested please get in contact.
So finally my first blog since arriving in HK 3 months ago. I know, it's been long but I've been really busy which must be a good sign. Networking, meetings, setting up classes, choreographing, teaching, more meetings... Macau, HK, Guanzhou... I haven't even had time to shop!!
G.E.M: Artist Development For the last month I've been working with G.E.M helping to develop her live performance and stage presence. She's a very talented singer with a voice and pitch that could definitely rival some of the UK artists I've worked with. Plus she's got a bubbly personality and works hard!
G.E.M has already won a load of awards for Best Female Newcomer (TVB, uChannel, PM Mag, Yahoo, HK Radio) and is set to release her album in the fall. Her new single just went top 5.
Next stage will be choreography, music videos and all that fun stuff!! Here are some pics from the studio and performance last month.
Thanks Morgan for the great photos!!!
Coming soon... a stage show, new artist from China and a special monthly event to shock and entertain you!
