Stan on the Other Side!
When I first joined The Living Room in Oct last year, Stan did an interview with me on our blog. Well today, I had the privilege of interviewing him on-air, and oh what a blast!
Stan on the other side: With Agapella team-mate & renowned artist Namiko Chan-Takahashi.
Stanley is part of an a capella group called Agapella and this year, they turn 7! *grin* In celebration of their 7th birthday, they're putting up a concert called seven@8, and tickets will go for a "whoppingly" cheap $7!
I heard them sing @ the Esplanade last Christmas and it was really heartwarming. The thing that strikes me most is that Agapella is more than just a "singing group". They're like family.
Listening to Namiko Chan-Takahashi & Stan share about how the members hang out, how some members are married to each other, others with kids.. gave me a sense of the bond they share. I think that's gonna make the greatest difference, compared to many other a capella groups out there.
These guys may not be celebs (well, except maybe for Stan!) but their YouTube vid, which was recorded a year ago at one of their regular practices, has received more than 22,000 hits... and counting! *gasp*
I'm told it's a rehearsal for a friend's wedding, and Agapella has never performed Pachelbel's Canon in D 'live'. But for this upcoming concert, they will. So don't miss it!

I'll be there on Fri 10 July to catch my buddy in action (yes, he's dancing!). Hope to see you there! :o)
