Strepsils Celebrates World Voice Day withThe Right Note Singing Competition

By June
Media InviteMusic lovers and singing aficionados, here's an event not to be missed: Strepsils recently launched The Right Note 2015, a nationwide singing competition in celebration of World Voice Day which falls on 16 April this year. It met with huge success last year and saw a whopping total over 600 entries and more than 50,000 visits to the microsite. Back for a second run, participants can expect a total package of exciting new prizes, exclusive partners and unbelievable opportunities to meet that singing dream!

The media conference was held at Barber Shop by Timbre, hosted by the effervescent comedian Hossan Leong, who enthralled the crowd until Brand and Campaign ambassador Olivia Ong made her appearance. Also present was Mr Kevin Doak, Sales Director of RB Singapore. I was abit starstruck because Olivia is such an inspiration to me, being the first Singaporean artiste to  develop a singing career in Japan at 17 after winning a recording contract from a competition, and reaping numerous accolades such as the prestigious Global Chinese Music Awards.

Not just beautiful and highly talented, Olivia is also a well-known multilingual singers in Asia. She first released her bestselling debut album "A Girl Meets Bossa Nova" at the age of 19. In 2008, Olivia was introduced to the Mandarin music market when she sang the theme song of Singapore's highest rated drama series "The Little Nyonya". 

We got up close and personal with Mr Doak and Olivia who took turns to share their thoughts about the campaign and the importance of maintaining a healthy voice, as well as offering voice tips and expectations this year given last year’s success.Strepsils celebrates World Voice Day withThe Right Note Singing Competition
Qsn: Olivia, tell us what is your secret to a great voice before performance?
Olivia: I don't really have any special routine but I do believe in having ample rest and eating well and balanced. Before a performance, I would do some vocal exercises to warm-up my voice. I also do have some honey-lemon water and Strepsils, of course!
Hossan: I've also heard that you shouldn't drink anything that isn't clear, like coffee!

Qsn: can you share with us what are you looking, expecting from this year's participants?
Olivia: We're looking for a soothing, smooth voice...which is very much what Strepsils stands for! I also believe that they'll need to choose the right songs, having the right rhythm and being on pitch...really provide entertainment to the crowd.

Qsn: Any final words you wish to share with interested participants looking to join? 
Olivia: I believe that everyone has an equal playing field, and it really boils down to how much you want it and willing to go for it. I once watched this documentary about people who are on their deathbed with regrets not going for what their dreams, so really go for it. 

Ending the interview, Olivia also crooned a single from her repertoire “You and Me” in her signature mellow soothing voice. And you are in luck to be one of the first few to catch this live song performance in my video below:
